Scones + Vegemite Cheesy Scrolls

Scones + Vegemite Cheesy Scrolls

Savoury and sweet in one hit, we have sorted both sets of taste buds in an afternoon treat.  You need to earn it though, so everyone must get involved. Kneading is hard work but a "must" life skill.


15 minutes prep/12 minutes cooking/5 minutes eating

Greased with butter baking trays/bowl/rolling pin + some hands that don't mind getting dirty

Oven - preheated to 230degrees Celsius 


  • 2 cups white self raising flour
  • 1 cup wholemeal self raising flour
  • pinch salt
  • 2 teaspoons caster sugar
  • 1/2 cup grated tasty low fat cheese
  • 1 tsp vegemite
  • 2/3 cup milk (low fat or whatever fat you want)
  • 90g butter or mono margarine at room temp diced


  1. Add flours and butter to bowl and rub butter in so that it crumbles.
  2. Add milk slowly, to keep the mix a nice combo of wet/dry to get ready to knead it.
  3. Add some flour to the bench and tip mix out. If the mix is sticky/wet just add a little flour to the top before starting to knead it.
  4. Knead for 10 minutes before splitting the mix into two.
  5. Roll each lot out, one to 2cm thickness and cutting into circles/placing on the pre-greased tray. The other, 1 cm thickness and putting a smear of the vegemite/cover with low fat cheese before rolling and cutting into 1cm scrolls/placing on tray upwards.
  6. Cook for 10-12minutes before enjoying the scones with jam/cream or eating the scrolls as they are.
