(For those non Australians reading this I apologies in advance for my super Australiana post…)
Having lived out of Australia for 3 years now it amuses me the things that excite me. Mainly it’s just two things really. Being barefoot on delicious green grass and all Australian products that I would never buy normally.
These products include:
Allens party mix
Shapes (chicken crimpy, obviously. Mmmmmmm shapes)
Pump water bottles
Kraft crunchy peanut butter
Chips from Red Rooster
I am sure that every Australian that has ever lived overseas has a major appreciation for these items too. Especially a freshly baked cheeseymite scroll from Bakers Delights. YUM. Clearly I have had to take matters into my own hands and that’s exactly what I did this morning and exactly what you should do too.
The onion addition gives a caramelised sweetness – highly recommend. For those non Australians still reading… trust me on this one. Marmite and Promite can be used but I will judge you.
Makes 10-12 scrolls
375g plain flour
1 sachet (7g) yeast
55g butter, melted
1 onion, sliced
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
Preheat your oven to 180. Mix the flour, salt, pepper and sugar together.
Whisk the milk and yeast in a jug until the yeast has dissolved.
Using a stand mixer with the dough hook attachment pour the melted butter and milk and yeast into the flour mixture and leave on a medium speed (I use level 4) for 6 minutes. You can do this by hand on a well floured surface and kneading for 10 minutes until the dough is soft and elastic.
Place the dough in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap (glad wrap for all you lucky Australian based readers) for 1 hour. If you have no patience like me 30 minutes minimum, but the result won’t be as good. This time will allow the yeast to activate and rise ensuring the dough is light and fluffy when you eat it.
Once risen, roll out the dough (on a floured surface) into a rectangle and cover with the vegemite, onion and cheese. Begin to roll it gently.
Cut your scrolls 10cm apart and place upwards on a lined baking tray. I squish mine together so the middle ones are soft and caramelised.
Brush a little extra melted butter on top then bake for 20 minutes.
How many is too many to eat?? :/
