Let’s face it when you find a way to keep the kids fed and busy, there are so many upsides. With the Autumn winds blowing a gale outside, it is hard to blame them not wanting to run outside and do their best impersonation of Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz.

These Cheesymite Scrolls are easy enough to let the kids do it themselves and come out tasting delicious. If Vegemite or Marmite is not your thing then you can change it to cheese and ham, cheese ham and pineapple, tomato sauce and cheese, the list is endless.

Preheat the oven to 220 C degrees or 200 C degrees fan forced.


  • 2 cups of white or bakers flour
  • 2 teaspoons of dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup of warm water
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 cups of grated tasty cheese
  • vegemite or 1 cup of chopped ham, topping of choice etc
  • oil for spraying tin (we used a sponge tin which worked well.

In a large bowl add flour and salt.

In a jug filled with the warm water add the yeast and sugar and allow to stand until the yeast bubbles and goes a little fluffy.

Mix yeasty water with flour and stir until smooth and the flour has come away from the edges of the bowl.

On a floured surface or a large chopping board (less mess) roll out the dough until you have a large rectangle shape. Spread on Vegemite/Marmite/tomato paste and then sprinkle over the cheese to the edges.

Carefully roll up the dough from the long edge and then cut into rounds. Place scroll shape upwards and place in hot oven for 20-25 minutes.

Enjoy the 10 minutes of silence and 20 minutes of self appreciation and then find a good book xxx
