I’d been promising Miss 4 that I would cook with her for a few days. Sunday had been really busy with a drive for 2 hours down the coast to lunch and then the two hour return trip! She looks forward to getting her apron on and getting her hands dirty, so we decided to have a big bakethon.
We decided to make some Cheesy Damper rolls like we found in one of the Women’s Weekly Kids Cooking books, but needed to make a few changes due to not having some of the ingredients and wanting to make them a bit healthier. So out of this were born Cheesy quinoa and thyme damper rolls.
I had planned on uploading this last night, but I was having so much fun doing a maths exploration of teens numbers using homemade popcorn with a friends son that I got carried away and forgot to type it all up. So now I’m in the loungeroom with Master 2 using my legs as a car racing track and quickly typing this up-not the most comfortable way to type!
These damper rolls were so easy to make I think that even master 2 and I could do them! Miss 4 did most of the measuring, most of the mixing and shaped most of them after assistance with dividing the dough (8 even pieces is a foreign concept to a 4 year old apparently.
These are dense- that’s the nature of damper. So if you are expecting something light and airy, they won’t tick the boxes. But they would be awesome with soup. They are great with slatherings of butter!
