Cheese & chive damper

Cheese & chive damper



1.Preheat oven to hot, 200ºC. Line an oven tray with baking paper.
2.Sift flour and mustard powder together into a large bowl. Rub in butter using fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs (this can be done in a food processor if liked). Stir cheese and chives through. Season to taste.
3.Make a well in centre of the dry ingredients. Pour in milk and water, mixing quickly to a soft dough.
4.Turn onto a floured surface. Knead lightly and form into a 25cm round.
5.Transfer damper to tray. Bake 35-40 minutes, until cooked when tested and base sounds hollow when tapped. Serve warm in wedges with butter.

If liked, sprinkle the top of the damper with some extra grated cheese before baking. Replace chives with a combination of other herbs like parsley and thyme, or use some Aussie flavourings such as lemon myrtle and dried bush tomato.
