Thanks RG

I went with the 'pinch' of salt - I don't use salt for anything if I can get away with it because I don't like salty foods, but do find bread and dampers cook a lot better with a small amount.  I only use 1 tsp of salt with 4 cups of flour for my bread dough, so a pinch was plenty for the damper   Smiley

The other half likes the bitey cheese on his crackers with sliced gherkins (no accounting for some taste!) so there was already a block in the fridge  Wink   I will try half cheddar and half mozzarrella one day - the goooey cheese should give a nice result with some crispy bacon bits too.

I sent an email off to pandaroo to ask if they could supply me with a list of stockists near here but haven't received a reply as yet.  Supposedly Woolies stock it but the mob here haven't seen the fried garlic (they did have other Pandaroo products) and it wasn't on the Woolies website for me to order from there either. 


IMHO...
I believe the 'no hands' issue for dampers comes from the fact that a 2:1 flour/water ratio makes a moist soft mix which will cling to your hands - so mixing with a butter knife makes less mess.  You generally tip a moist damper dough straight into the pot and cook immediately rather than leave it to rise as you would with bread dough.    Except for the artisan/5 minute doughs, bread dough generally needs to be drier so it can be kneaded (traditionally by hand) to get the gluten going... where as you don't knead or rise a damper dough   Smiley

 

The judge's decision is final... unless the 3rd umpire is called for... or a facebook campaign goes viral !!!

All comments are my personal opinion only and/or based on real life experiences.  No debate will be entered into.

Just came back from 3 nights at Gordon Country.
Western side of Cunninghams Gap.
Had a ball and did some ersious CI cooking.
Will post many photos in the coming week.

Here is the Garlic Cheesey Damper I promised.
I used fresh garlic and 2 good pinches of salt.
It was divine..prpbably the best damper I have ever made.
