Damper... on a stick



500g plain flour

350ml warm water

7g active dry yeast

Thinly sliced garlic (to taste)

Olive oil (to drizzle)

Feeds 2


Tip the flour into a large bowl. Make a well in the center and add the warm sea water and yeast. Bring the dough together with your fingers, then turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 10–15 minutes or until it becomes smooth and slightly sticky. You might need to add more sea water if the dough is dry. Return the dough to the floured bowl and cover with a clean tea towel. Rest in a warm spot for 1 hour or until it doubles in size. 

Light your fire and let it burn down until you obtain a medium heat. 

Imagine a pizza wrapped around a stick and cooked over a campfire. That is what we are doing here people. Once the dough has risen, punch it down and form it into balls the size of a golf ball.

Flatten the balls into long, triangle shapes, then add some garlic and a drizzle of olive oil. Fold the dough over on itself and wrap around your stick, then cook over the fire for about 5 minutes, rotating until cooked through. Don’t worry if the crust gets a little burnt; it just adds to the flavor. Eat straight off the stick.
