Make your own Ginger Juice. Use a garlic press to squeeze a 1 x 2 inch piece of ginger root. This simple hack yields about 1 tablespoon of ginger essence. With just a few squeezes, you unlock a tablespoon of liquid gold - fresh, Ginger Juice.

I'm a beginner baker and I found this recipe to be straightforward, but I struggled a bit with the dough. Thanks for the recipe anyway.

This is a tasty bread. Not sweet at all. The bread turned out fluffy on the inside with a slightly crisp crust.

I enjoyed it with some butter and jam for breakfast.

Traditionally, Damper is cooked in the coals of a camp fire, but the temperature in an oven is more consistent.
