Often what I cook and bake is dictated by what is in my pantry, fridge and fruit bowl. I find having a Thermomix really helps me to make the most of what I have on hand and reduces food wastage. If you have a bunch of bananas looking a little overripe, it’s so easy to whip up a loaf of banana bread, or muffins, or chop them up and freeze them in ziplock bag ready for smoothies.
This morning I was looking at a huge pot of vanilla yoghurt which I made a few days ago. I tried a different recipe and whilst it’s nice, it just wasn’t as good as my usual recipe and it seemed to make twice as much. The first thing that came to mind using bulk yoghurt was scrolls. Have you seen this fantastic dough recipe using just yoghurt and Self Raising Flour? Yes, you heard me correctly….JUST 400g thick greek style yoghurt and 420g self raising flour. Mix them together to make a workable dough. No need to prove the dough. Couldn’t be easier. If you have a Thermomix, easier still. Mix on about speed 5 until the dough comes together. Add a bit of extra flour if you need to so it’s not too sticky. It takes about 15 seconds.
Having vanilla yoghurt meant that my scrolls needed to be sweet rather than savoury, so I grabbed a block of dark chocolate and milled it for about 8 seconds, speed 9.
To make the scrolls, roll the dough into a large rectangle on your Thermomat (fab non-stick silicon mat which takes the mess out of dough and pastry making), sprinkle on the chocolate and press into the dough. Roll dough into a log and then slice it into 3cm rounds. Into the oven they go for about 20 mins 180C on a lined baking tray.
To finish them off I mixed a little icing sugar and water together to make runny icing and drizzled it over the warm scrolls. Then I had to taste test a few before breakfast this morning. For quality control, ok??
I declare them delicious!
