cheese damper

Ingredients 6
Servings 4
Time 00:10


  • 500
    self-raising flour
  • 1 1/2
    fine salt
  • 150
    mature cheddar - cut into small cubes
  • 2
  • 125
    water (if necessary)
  • ml
    sunflower, sesame and pumpkin seeds to sprinkle on top


Preheat your oven to 180°C

In a bowl sift the flour and salt, add the cheddar squares then pour in the buttermilk and mix lightly. If the dough is too firm, add sufficient water to form a soft-yet-firm consistency.

Don’t knead the dough, but mix lightly then shape into a ball and flatten a bit. Cut into sections, using a sharp knife (cut about 1/3 of the way through the dough) and sprinkle with the seeds.

Bake in the oven for an hour, test by inserting a skewer and tapping the bread with your knuckle, if the skewer comes out clean and the bread sounds hollow, then remove from oven.

Leave to cool before serving.
