Damper originated with the early pioneer … flour and water was mixed into a dough and wrapped around a stick taken from the Eucalyptus Tree, it was then held out over the camp fire to cook, the damper was cooked when it slid off the stick. Years passed and other additions were made, such as jam and cream, or butter were added after they were cooked. More time passed and damper cakes were made with fruit and cooked in camp ovens in the earth. Although this cake has not been cooked in the earth it is a reminder of one of the great outback traditions.
