For such little people, my two toddlers sure have massive appetites – especially when it comes to carbs. As soon as they spot (or sniff!) any kind of bread product they immediately claim to be hungry and want to eat it. To try and save some money (and make sure I know what they are actually consuming) I’ve been making my own Vegemite and Cheese Scrolls in the Thermomix.
One of the things I like most about this recipe is that there is no yeast involved, because to be honest, I find it a little scary to work with!
This recipe takes no time to whip up (thanks to not needing to prove as no yeast) and you can have a batch of these tasty vegemite and cheese scrolls ready to be devoured by your little people in no time at all.
Cheese and Vegemite Scrolls Thermomix
- 2 cups (300g) of self raising flour + extra to dust
- 90 g of butter
- ½ teaspoon of salt
- ⅔ cup (160ml) of milk
- 1/4 cup of vegemite - at room temperature
- 1 1/2 cups of grated tasty cheese
- Milk to brush edges
Preheat your oven to 210 degrees and line an oven tray with baking paper.
Place the flour, butter and salt into the Thermomix bowl and mix for 10 seconds on speed 9 until mixture is the same consistency as bread crumbs.
Add the milk and mix for 7 seconds on speed 4 to combine.
Use the kneading function to knead the dough for 2 minutes
Turn the dough out onto a floured bench and using a rolling pin, roll the dough out until you have a 30cm x 40cm rectangle.
Spread the vegemite over the dough, leaving a 2cm gap around the edges.
Brush one long edge with a little bit of milk.
Scatter approximately 1 1/4 cups of cheese over the vegemite.
Starting at the long side (without milk) carefully roll the dough until enclosed.
Cut into 12 slices – approximately 2cm thick.
Place on a baking tray and sprinkle with the remaining grated cheese.
Bake in oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown on top and cooked through.
