Garlic Damper | Campfire cooking

As a Australian school kid I remember being taken to the local park and learning how to make Damper and Billy Tea, there are many recipes, some use milk, even lemonade or beer, this is a simple one with only water. They are traditionally baked in a Camp Oven in the coals of a open fire. The addition of garlic powder makes it a perfect accompaniment to pasta
