Remarks

A swagman is a wandering laborer, though there are not so many now. A swagman would make this bread from flour and water and cook it on an open fire. This is an easy recipe to cook with kids when camping using small tin cake pans or even simple pans, lined.

Notes

If you don't have self-raising flour, substitute it with 1 1/3 cup (150 g) all purpose flour and 1 tsp baking powder.

Substitute water with milk for enhanced flavor.
