Forest School: Making damper over the campfire

Ashmansworthy class excelled in┬átheir baking skills today by making damper, a type of bread, and cooking it on a stick over the campfire. They mixed all the ingredients together in a plastic bag, added cheese and herbs, then formed the dough onto a stick. They baked it over the embers until it was golden brown. After it was cooked they had a choice of salsa or sour cream dip to try. All the children worked well in their groups and there wasn’t a “soggy bottom” in sight!

  1. I really enjoyed making a special type of bread which was toasted on a camp fire and it was delicious. In my group, me Hannah and Alice, we we made delicious bread.

  2. don’t forget to invite us parents if you do! What a lovely Christmas treat that would be….carols round the campfire with hog roast and mulled wine :) hint hint
