Cheesy Vegemite Damper

Recipe by Tad Lombardo

Vegemite, beer and damper, it doesn't get much more Aussie than this!

  • 3 cups self raising flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 tbs Vegemite
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 375ml stubby beer
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. Sieve the flour, salt, baking powder and bicarbonate into a bowl. Add the sugar and mix well.
  3. Dissolve the Vegemite in the milk in a saucepan over a low heat – or this can be mixed and then heated in the microwave.
  4. Stir the dissolved Vegemite/milk mixture and some of the beer into the dry mixture until a pliable dough is formed. Turn out onto a floured surface and roll into a round shape.
  5. Place on a greased oven tray, moisten the top with water and sprinkle with grated cheese.
  6. Using a knife, score lines about 1cm deep on top of damper to divide into 6.
  7. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes until golden and when you tap the underside it sounds hollow.
