Damper with Feta

I only found out about damper a month ago after I have been living in Australia for over four years. Shocking! I love it! I made one yesterday for our dinner party. Everyone liked it. It was so easy to make and so delicious. So I have to create a post to share it with you guys. It’s really a great solution for a quick bread.  After it’s baked, it is crispy outside and soft on the inside. Damper is a traditional Australian soda bread that is baked on campfire by swagmen. Basically, it’s made from flour, water or milk, and butter. Personally, I think it tastes a little bit like savoury scones without so much butter and egg. In this recipe, I add feta cheese, dill and pine nuts. Unfortunately, I ran out of sun-dried tomatoes. Otherwise, I will not hesitate to put some in the bread. When I say it’s simple to make, I am not kidding. There is absolutely no need to knead the dough (oh, how much I love that! 🙂 ). Rub …

Soft Oregano Garlic Cheese Bread

I have been loving soft bread for the past few weeks. Just couldn’t stop baking them. So easy to make!  My favourites are the one with pork floss, green onion and mayonnaise, and the sweet bread with peanut butter and black cherry jam. You can see the photos on my Instagram, here. Everyone just loved it! It was gone in few minutes. Nothing can make me happier than that. When I was tidying up our herb garden yesterday, I found the oregano we planted few weeks back has been growing madly. I feel the urge to use some of it before any pest gets it. When I was waiting for the dough to rise, I washed and picked the oregano leaves.  At the beginning, I thought I just add some olive oil and pine nuts to make a pesto paste. Then, I saw the garlic I roasted earlier. Why not, eh? I always find it’s so much fun to improvise with what I have in the kitchen. Then, Parmesan cheese is a must! Actually, I thought about Feta …

Olive Bread

Do you love olives? I am a big fan. I never miss my opportunity to add olives in my cooking or baking. I love olive bread (since it has olives in it!). It always smells so good. The aroma is so alluring that I can’t stop eating it. I made this one in a quiet afternoon. Sipping my coffee while I was cutting the onion and frying it to soften it. When I was waiting for the onions to cool down, I chopped the coriander, parsley, and olives. The rest is easy peasy. Combine all the ingredients together and make a dough in a mixing bowl. Then, knead for a while. Let it rise, and bake! When the bread is baked and cooled. I served the slices with some fresh salad and prosciutto. It goes well with fish dip too. Yum…  🙂 INGREDIENTS Red onion – 1, sliced Olive oil – 1 tbsp, to cook the onion Bread flour – 440-450 g Pitted black olives – 80 g Baby caper – 20 g Salt – 1 tsp Dried …
