I found this recipe during the week while trying to put some order into the recipe clippings I have been collecting over the years. Finally I have started to sort them into a kind of categorical order?? (I think its going to be a bit of a Zamama work-in-progress sort of project!!). Anyway with it being the weekend and it WAS raining outside, I thought this might be a great little baking project to involve Zakidlets with.
I certainly did not get any arguments when I asked Zakidlets if they would like to help me do some baking!! As you can see below they thoroughly enjoyed getting their little hands in amongst rubbing the butter into the flour.
You will need
2 cups self-raising flour
30g butter chopped
1/4 cup basil (I didn’t have fresh basil so used a heaped teaspoon of dried)
3/4 cup milk
3 tablespoons pizza paste or similar
1 cup tasty cheese
1/2 cup chopped salami
1/2 cup red capsicum, diced
1/3 cup diced black olives (regarding toppings it’s up to the imagination ie sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke, spinach, feta, sultanas, apple and cinnamon, the choice is yours)
Preheat oven to 220c
Rub butter into flour (3 sets of hands is fun but 1 set will still do the job).
Make a well in the middle, pour milk in stirring quickly to make a very sticky dough (don’t over mix).
Flour bench top well. Knead dough until not sticky and easy to work with.
Roll dough out to about 1.5 cm thick rectangle. Load toppings over the dough and roll length ways into a log shape. Cut into 2cm slices.
Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper in the shape of a ring cut side up so all edges touch. Brush with milk. Bake 15 minutes until just brown and sounds hollow when tapped on.
The hard work was a rewarding, warm yummy savoury scroll!!!
