    1. The recipe is from a 1987 issue of Sunset Magazine. It's really tasty and quite filling.
      1 pk Active dry yeast
      1/4 c Warm water (110 degrees F.)
      1 c Warm milk (110 degrees F.)
      3 c (about) all-purpose flour
      1 tb Baking powder
      3/4 ts Salt or to taste
      2 tb Butter or margarine
      In a small bowl, soften yeast in water, about 5 minutes. Stir in milk; set aside. In a bowl, mix 3 cups flour, baking powder, and salt. With a pastry blender or your fingers, cut or rub butter into flour mixture until fine crumbs form. Add milk mixture; stir until evenly moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead until smooth, about 15 times; add flour if required to prevent sticking. Shape dough into a lumpy round loaf, 5 to 6 inches in diameter. Dust lightly with flour, then place in a greased 8-inch round cake pan. With a sharp knife, cut an X about 1/2 inch deep and 3 inches long across center of loaf. Bake on bottom rack of a 375 degree F. oven until well browned, about 55 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool on a rack for 5 to 10 minutes, then serve warm. Makes 1 loaf, about 1 1/2 pounds.

    Sorry, but no self-respecting Swagman would put yeast in the damper - it is a recipe for the outback where yeast not available. Here's the True Blue. Sometimes milk is substituted for water; and if there was the luxury of baking soda, a pinch of that might be used. A giant scone for baking in the embers, basically!!! Delicious with golden syrup, though, no doubt about it, and a cuppa billy-tea... oh yeaaaahhh... hope you had a supery-dupery mum's day yourself. YAM xx
