If you cook it right, the expanding steam from the water in the dough gives you some rise. However, in my opinion at least, damper is like a lot of other bush tucker. To paraphrase Mick Dundee "You can live on it, but it's sh*t".

You're doing it wrong!
I make damper at home at least once a week because it is damn tasty! It is also hot and filling, really nice on a cold winter day.

If y'all haven't tried it yet, take a look at the Jetboil system. I have the Flash Personal Cooking System. Unbelievably awesome...

+1

Fresh cooked damper and a mug of tea as the wood smoke drifts bye is the best.

I use the Kelly Kettle. It's quite versatile and can boil water in 3 mins. Doesn't require any type of liquid fuel, just some dry twigs, pine cones or even dry grass. It's not the smallest cooking device compared to a jet stove but it robust and as long as you can find fuel it works. You can get various accessories for grilling and whatnot and it all packs up inside of the Kettle itself when broken down.

I've never relied upon a cooking stove for sustenance, but I did make this wood gasifier to boil water for coffee on a recent trip. It takes a handful of twigs and about 10 minutes of time to get the water going. I found a DIY tutorial to make it online from a couple grocery store cans. It works really well and cost about $10.

Never came across this one before. I just started playing with a rocket stove. For convenience I will take along some wood pellets in a ziplock bag. It burns more consistently as well. Do you ever use them?

Here is a shot of the rocket stove using twigs. Sure is nice not having to carry fuel.

I am familiar with wood pellets but have never used them in the Kelly Kettle. I would be hesitant to use pellets since they are designed to be used in a pellet stove, however they may be useful if no dry fuel was available to get your fire going. I have made fire starters out of used egg cartons, wood chips and dryer lint mixed with paraffin wax as a reliable fire starter when things are damp. Just enough to get a suitable base going in the kettle.
