Apple Cinnamon Damper

Apple Cinnamon Damper with Maple Syrup

S. Wongkaew

In this damper recipe the traditional Australian bread is given a sweet twist with the addition of freshly grated apple, fragrant cinnamon and dark brown sugar.

Serve slices of hot damper with butter, sliced banana and a dash of dark maple syrup. It's heavenly.


  • 3 cups self-raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • 75g of chilled butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup of packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
  • 2 gala or pink lady apples, grated
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1 banana, sliced when serving


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350F.
  2. Grease a baking tray and line it with baking paper. Lightly grease the baking paper. Set aside.
  3. Mix together the flour, salt, sugars and cinnamon in a bowl. Use your fingertips to rub butter into flour mixture until the mixture resembles small breadcrumbs.
  4. Add the grated apple and mix well with a wooden spoon.
  5. Add the milk and 1/2 cup of cold water to flour mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture forms a sticky dough. Add a little extra water if necessary to moisten the dough slightly.
  6. Turn the dough onto a lightly-floured surface. Gently knead it until it's just smooth -- about 4 times.
  7. Shape dough into a 15-20cm round. Place the round on the prepared baking tray.
  8. Rub some flour on a sharp knife and score top of damper into 8 wedges.
  9. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Tap the bread and if it sounds hollow, it's ready.
  10. Let the bread stand on the tray for 5 minutes and then place it on a wire rack to cool.
  11. Slice and serve with butter, banana and maple syrup.
  12. Store the damper in an airtight container for up to a week. It can also be frozen and toasted.
