Damper

A form of bread make by the first British immigrants arriving in Australia. This is a mixture of flour and water, which is kneaded before being shaped into a flat cake about 2 inches thick. This is then baked in the glowing embers of an open fire. The principles were pinched from the Aborigines, who ground their flour from Acacia (Wattle) seeds. See also "Acacia"
