Aniseed Myrtle Damper

Damper is an iconic and traditional Australian dish, historically prepared by swagmen, drovers, stockmen and other travelers. Our recipe uses Aniseed Myrtle as flavouring.



  1. 500 g self-raising wholemeal flour

  2. 2 tbsp aniseed myrtle ground

  3. ½ tsp mountain pepper

  4. 15 ml macadamia nut oil

  5. 200 ml milk


Pre-heat oven to 180°C. Mix flour and aniseed myrtle. Add oil and milk and mix roughly using hands (do not overwork). Roll into log and divide into handful sized balls. Place the damper onto a flour dusted baking tray and bake for 15-20 min. until golden brown.
