Recipe for Campfire Dampers with Carrs Flour

Campfire Dampers

20 MINS prep



500g Carr’s Self Raising Flour

80g Golden Caster Sugar

200ml Cold Water

Chocolate Spread and Strawberry Jam (to serve)


Carr’s Self Raising Flour


Find 8 sticks about 50cm long and peel the bark off half of the stick. Alternatively you can cover half of the stick with tin foil.

Measure the flour into a large bowl, add the sugar and mix.

Add the water to the flour and mix. Lightly knead the dough until it all comes together then leave for 10 minutes.

Cut the mixture into two, then cut each piece into four so that you have eight pieces.

Take a piece of dough and roll it into a sausage shape about 27 cms in length. Wrap the dough around the stick, carefully pressing the ends into the stick so it doesn’t fall off.

Cook the dampers over the campfire for 12 minutes, turning them so that they turn golden brown all over. The dough should feel solid when you carefully tap it.

Wrap a napkin around the damper and twist, pull off the stick.

Fill the damper with chocolate spread or jam.

Be careful when cooking over the fire and always supervise children.
