    Rita~'s Note:

    Damper is a traditional Australian bread, made without yeast, and commonly made on a campfire in a cast iron camp oven. This is tweeked from Margaret E. Walker article in Outback Camping When Margaret was asked her what kind of tasty cheese, and learned that the word 'tasty' is used in Australia the way 'sharp' is used in the US. We thanked Margaret for helping us learn and had a good laugh at the thought of eating non-tasty cheese.

      Delicious! Similar, but better than the cheese biscuits at Red Lobster. I had to bake for 35 minutes.

      This recipe will be made and enjoyed time and again, as Rita's recipes always are! Who would guess that a concoction of ready ingredients with such simplicity to prepare could be so yummy?! This loaf, as another reviewer said, is reminiscent of those biscuits at Red Lobster Restaurant. I used about 1 1/2 cups cheddar and 1/3 cup total parmesan, counting the parmesn on top, and extra garlic. A definite keeper. Thanks Rita~

      i HAVE to give this recipe a 5 star rating however I had messed up by not reading the SELF raising flour! ;( but it was still soooo yummy! (and a little doughy/crunchy). cant wait to make it again and use the proper ingredient! used about 5 cloves of garlic. YAYYY! thanks Rita!

      made again 3-4-2012: well used the right flour this time and accidentally used 2 cups of shredded cheddar... YUMMY!!!!! such a quick, easy meal that i usually have everything on hand. thanks again!!
