So, in this month’s blog, we’ve rounded up 4 moreish camping recipes to make while you’re holidaying in your JAWA. Enjoy!

Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tsp red wine vinegar

Campfire Meal Idea #3: The Classic Aussie Snack
450g self-raising flour
1/4 tsp salt
180mL milk (if too dry, add a bit more)
1 tsp caster sugar
80g chilled butter
Extra flour, if needed
Step 1: Mix flour salt and sugar together in a bowl. Rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips until it looks like breadcrumbs.
Step 2: Add milk slowly and mix to form a soft dough.
Step 3: Knead lightly on a floured board until smooth. Shape into a round loaf, brush with milk and cut a cross in the top surface of the dough.
Step 4: Grease tin foil and dust with flour. Add bread dough and wrap.
Step 5: Place in the coals of the fire and let it bake for about 30 minutes.
Step 6: To taste if it’s done, tap the loaf and it should sound hollow. Cut into moderately thick slices and serve while still warm, topped with butter, golden syrup or your favourite jam.
You can add a variety of ingredients to damper for a different flavour, such as dessicated coconut, cinnamon, sultanas or extra sugar for a sweeter bread.
