Cheesymite Scrolls

Both my kids have grown up eating Cheesymite Scrolls - a baked roll of light dough laced with vegemite and cheese. It has long been a quick fix for hungry kids when we are out shopping and we can therefore avoid the dreaded food court at the shopping centre.

Not lovers of vegemite in our house so I have adapted the recipe by using Promite - a yummier (in our opinion) spread which is the equivalent to good ol' vegemite.  

Super easy to make and superb to eat fresh from the oven.  Perfect for a lunchbox treat also.

Another amazing thing about this recipe is that you can freeze individual rolled up scrolls (wrap in plastic wrap and place in a snap lock bag) and allow to defrost prior to baking.  I don't get to do that though as these just get snapped up at our house!!

Cheesymite Scrolls
(recipe adapted from The Organised Housewife)

Makes: 10

3 cups Self Raising Flour
pinch salt
50 grams reduced fat butter
1-1 1/2 cups milk
1-2 tablespoons Promite or Vegemite
1 1/2 cups reduced fat grated tasty cheese

Heat oven to 220 Celsius.

Sift flour and salt into a bowl. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. (Or you can use a bench blender on speed 2)

Stir in enough milk to make a soft dough.

Knead on a lightly floured board.

Roll to form a rectangle that is roughly 40cm x 25cm.

Spread promite/vegemite over the dough using a blunt knife or spatula. Sprinkle 1 cup cheese over the top.

Roll up the dough starting from a long side first.

Cut 10 x 4cm pieces from the roll.

Place these pieces close together, cut side up on a greased baking tray. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top.

Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool, if the kids will let you.
