Stephanie baking Scrolls

This is Stephanie cooking the scrolls from my book, The Real Food for Kids cookbook, we did use the thermomix to  mix the dough but she measured all the ingredients into the bowl.

steph 1 (1 of 1)

This is the ‘warm spot’ steph picked for the dough to rise! she cracks me up!


bread rising (1 of 1)

for soft bread you can leave the dough to rise a few times, knocking back in between rises, and use warm water (not hot it will kill the yeast)


Stephanie has rolled the dough out into a large square (kind of??!) and spreads butter over 2/3rds

then vegemite over the same 2/3 rds  (?) and sprinkle with some grated cheese

Yummy lunch of freshly baked scrolls. The rising time takes a while, but if I am home anyway for the day, they really do not take much time to make. Having the scrolls wrapped and frozen to pull out to defrost for a busy morning actually makes packing the lunches in the mornings a lot easier!!

There are heaps of different filling ideas your kids will enjoy creating their own, pizza scrolls are always a hit!
