Perfect Damper

by Leah Halmagyi


  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • ¼ cup rye flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp fine salt
  • ½ cup Greek yoghurt
  • ¾ cup soda water


Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Serves: 4-6

1 Preheat oven to 180°C. Sift the flours, baking powder and salt into a bowl, then make a well in the centre. Mix the yoghurt and soda water, then pour into the well and begin mixing very gently with two forks. When the mix just comes together, dust with flour and form into a loaf, but do not knead. Put on a lined oven tray and bake for 30 minutes, until browned, and hollow-sounding when tapped.
