Cheesy Potato Damper

I had planned on making individual serves of this wrapped on sticks, cooked over an open fire, but it rained tonight, so instead of soup in mugs and damper on sticks outside, we had soup in mugs and damper rolls snuggled up on the couch with blankets and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Cheesy Potato Damper (adapted from Basics to Brilliance: Potato Recipes by Murdoch Books.)
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp bicarb soda
30g melted butter
1 cup mashed potato
1/2 - 1 cup milk
1 egg
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a tray with baking paper. Sift flours, salt and bicarb soda into a bowl. Add butter, mashed potato, egg, milk and cheese and mix until well combined into a firm dough.

Divide into ten pieces, and shape into small balls, place on the tray. Bake for around 30 minutes or until hollow sounding when gently tapped. Turn out onto a wire rack. Serve warm with butter.
