Whether you’re looking for a yummy snack to pack in school lunch boxes or are just after a great little weekend lunch, these Cheesymite Scrolls are the best! If you’re a Vegemite fan (and if you live in Australia, there’s a 99.9999% chance you are), then you’ll love these. They’re super quick and easy to make and are a whole lot cheaper than buying the store-bought ones.

To start off you need to make a basic dough. Flour a board or bench and knead the dough until you have a nice round ball. On a side note, there’s something quite therapeutic about kneading dough – I highly recommend it! When you’ve got your dough ball ready, roll it out until it’s 1cm thick. Don’t worry too much about getting the dough a perfect shape… we’re going rustic here! Just a oval’ish’ shape is perfect!

Next, spread the butter and then the Vegemite over the dough (make sure you leave about a 1cm border around the edge). Sprinkle the grated cheese over the Vegemite. Then, starting from one of the long sides, roll the dough up, over and over itself, until you have one nice long round tube. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into 3cm thick slices. Bake them into the oven until they’re golden and sound hollow when tapped. While the scrolls are cooking, make yourself a cuppa and have a little relax – you’ve totally earned it. If you like, maybe even have a piece of cake too. Actually a piece of cake is a must for relaxing and waiting for scrolls.

Whatever you do, make sure you try the Cheesymite Scrolls warm out of the oven… errrrmeeeegoddd!! So yum. You can also make a big batch of these, cook them and freeze them until you need them. For best results, pop them back into the oven to reheat if using from frozen.

    Is it 150 ml of milk instead of 150 grams?

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Suzy, I use grams on this website as it’s what the Thermomix measures in. But yes – 150mls 🙂 xx

    Hello, I’m hoping for some tips on this recipe. I used the Thermomix version by my scrolls didn’t rise. The only ingredient I didn’t add was vegemite.
    Any tips would be most helpful as I’d really like to be able to make these.
    Thanks.

      Hi Eve, that’s really strange as the self-raising flour should definitely have risen them! The only thing I can think of is that perhaps your oven wasn’t hot enough?
