Rocky Road Damper

Outback Gourmet – Rocky Road Damper

Recipe from Mr 4×4.

Looking for something a bit different to you normal damper? Try our delicious, sweet damper that’s definitely not an ‘everyday’ food!

Most dampers are pasty white contraptions that need layers of jam or honey to enhance their taste. Not this damper. Every morsel is stuffed with sweetness, making it a decadent campfire treat.  Advertisements


1kg Self Raising Flour 
1 teaspoon salt 
15g butter (for camp oven) 
2 tablespoons brown sugar 
1 x can stout beer (375ml) 
Milk (approx. 150ml) 
1 bag raspberry lollies 
100g macadamias 
½ bag marshmallows 
200g chocolate drops or chocolate squares 
1 packet Oreo biscuits (crushed) 
Cream (dollop or thickened) for finishing 

Pat cooking with kids


Combine the salt, flour, and stout beer to make a ‘Clag glue’ consistency. Add milk if required to get the desired consistency.  This is a ‘no knead’ recipe, but you will need a strong metal spatula to stir it all up.  

After making the wet damper base, simply throw in the raspberries, macadamias, chocolate, marshmallows, and Oreo’s into the mix.  

You would normally cook a damper for around 25 minutes, but this one is a big heavy mix, so it will take closer to 45 minutes to cook through. I recommend cooking next to the fire, by robbing coals from the fire. Place the coals on the top and bottom, and check after 30 minutes to see how it’s cooking. If you’re unsure whether it’s done, stick in a knife and see if the mixture sticks. If it does, keep on cooking.  

Once it’s done, serve with some double dollop cream or thickened cream. Oh, and this is heavy, so go easy on the serving size!

  1. Can I suggest to let it stand for a few minutes so as not to burn little tongues with the molten lollies? Looks great, can’t wait to get out there again and give it a go. Thanks Mr 4×4.
