Vegan Bush Bread "Damper" No Knead

This is a traditional bread from Australia, Bush Bread was made by The Indigenous Australians for hundreds of thousands of years, It was high in protein and carbohydrate, and helped form part of a balanced traditional diet, Traditionally it is made from milling seeds and grains. Now this is a much easier way to do it.

3 cups Self Raising Flour
3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp Dairy Free Butter 
Pinch Salt
1 tsp Sugar 
1 tsp Bi Carb of Soda  
2 cups Soy Milk (more if need be) 
any herbs you like (I used oregano)
Flour extra for dusting
Milk extra for brushing

Pre-heat oven to 180C, 350°F, 4 Gas, In a large mixing bowl add the flour,the sugar, salt, and bi carb, Mix to combine, Add the butter now and rub it all through the flour till it's fully mixed in, add the milk using your hands till it forms a dough, It should be a little sticky but it shouldn't coat your hand at this point, Line and place it in a casserole dish or any oven safe round deep dish and leaving the lid off, Brush with milk well all over the top and coat the top with flour, no need to pat it on just loosely throw it on the top, Put it in the oven for 30mins or till you tap the bottom and it sounds hollow.  Wonderful served with Stew or soups even on it's own. Enjoy!  =)
