    Damper was made by swaggies (hobos) as it was cheap and the ingredients were light and cheap.

    Ingredients:

    500 grams plain flour

    water

    sultanas or raisins

    salt

    Best cooked in a hot bed of coals in a camp oven

    Combine flour,water and a pinch of salt
    Mix until doughy
    Place in camp oven cover with hot coals
    Check once or twice to ensure Damper does not burn.
    When cooked break apart and lather with butter.

    Hmmm interesting.
    500 grams of flour = 17.5 ounce of flour. How much water, just enough to make doughy?
