Homemade scrolls are so yummy & very easy to make. The best thing about this recipe is you get to choose the fillings – cheese & vegemite, pizza, apple & cinnamon…. The price of home made scrolls is even more appealing. These scrolls cost about 40 cents to make. Compare that to $3.40 in the bakery! I have young kids, so I make mini scrolls, which probably cost me less than 25 cents to make. They freeze well, so are fantastic for snacks or lunch boxes. Put a frozen scroll in your kid’s lunchbox in the morning & it will be ready to eat by recess.
This dough recipe makes about 30 mini scrolls or 16 large scrolls.
1 sachet dried yeast (or 2 tsp dried yeast)
500g Bakers flour
20g Olive oil
1.5 tsp salt
1) Pour water in TM bowl & add yeast. Heat 1 minute/37 degrees/speed 1.
2) Add flour, oil & salt. Mix 6 seconds/speed 6.
3) Set TM to closed lid position & knead for 2 minutes on interval speed.
4) Transfer dough to a Thermomat or a lightly floured bench top & work into a ball. Allow to prove in a warm place for 15 minutes or until double in size.
5) Pre heat oven to 180 degrees
The Thermomat is ideal to prove dough. Simply wrap up the dough as shown below & leave on a Thermoserver. Boiling water in the Thermoserver will provide enough warmth for the dough to rise.
6) Roll dough out in a rectangle shape. Spread fillings on dough. I’m making cheesy mite scrolls.
7) Using a pizza cutter, cut dough into long strips. I cut thin strips, as my kids are quite young, but feel free to cut thicker strips if you want to cook larger scrolls.
As you can’t cut on a Thermomat, I’m using a not stick Fondant mat that I use for decorating cakes. If you don’t have one of these, roll the dough out on a sheet of baking paper & cut on a chopping board.
8) Arrange scrolls close together, but not touching, on a lined baking tray. Sprinkle over some extra cheese if you like.
9) Bake for 10-12 minutes or until just turning brown.
