Ingredients for cheese and vegemite scrolls
- 2 cups self-raising flour (try wholemeal)
- 30g butter, chopped
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 tbsp vegemite
- 3/4 cup grated tasty cheese
- Extra milk, to glaze
Step 1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Step 2. Sift flour into a bowl. Using fingertips, rub the butter into flour until you have a fine breadcrumb consistency.
Step 3. Make a well in the centre. Add milk and mix until soft dough forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until just smooth – don’t over knead.
Step 4. Roll out to a 30ish x 20ishcm rectangle. Spread Vegemite over the dough and then sprinkle the cheese. Roll up firmly and place onto tray seam side down.
Step 5. Using clean scissors, cut into top of dough at 3cm intervals (don’t cut all the way through). Brush with milk. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden.
Tip: don’t stop at vegemite, these scrolls are very flexible for you to fill them with whatever flavours you like.
