Vegemite Scrolls

300g lukewarm water
2tsp yeast
20g oil
500g bakers flour
2 tsp salt
Grated cheese

Add all ingredients except butter,  vegemite and cheese, mix on Speed 5 for 5 seconds
Set on closed lid and Interval Speed for 1 minute and 30 seconds
Empty from Thermomix bowl and shape into a smooth ball (they call it mushroom shape, all tucked under itself)
Wrap in bread mat or cover with glad wrap and let prove for 30 minutes
Divide dough into 2 and roll out onto a tray - I actually just use my hands, not a rolling pin - but either is fine. 
Spread butter and vegemite and grated cheese over the surface of dough
Roll up into sausage shape and then cut each scroll out and place in deep dish for baking - making sure the scrolls are touching each other.  This will help them rise
Place into hot 210 degree oven for 15 minutes or until just cooked.  I did brown mine a little with my grill for a few minutes (I have a rather dodgy oven, so i find this works great) 

Hints and Tips:  
Sprinkle a bit of extra cheese on top before baking 
Make Pizza topping instead of vegemite - tomato paste, cheese and ham 
Make Pesto topping instead of vegemite - pesto and cheese
Use a deep pan/tray to bake in, keeps the heat in and helps with the scrolls rising well
Don't over bake, you want them to be 'just' cooked

I made these this morning before school believe it or not.  And kids had fresh yummy homemade scrolls for lunch and there's plenty left for afternoon tea or to freeze for lunches throughout the week - A very simple and quick lunchbox filler


  1. How well do they freeze? Do you just defrost in the fridge the night before?

  2. Do you think I could make the dough the night before and jeep it in the fridge?

  3. They freeze perfectly . Kids loved them in their lunch boxes . I also made ham cheese and mustard pickle .
