We love this gourmet take on the classic Vegemite Scroll. This recipe from Australia Macadamias is sure to be a winner at your next picnic or children’s school lunchbox.


500g plain bread flour plus ¼ cup for kneading and rolling
1 sachet dried yeast
1 teaspoon fine salt
325ml warm water
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons vegemite, or to taste
2 cups (125g) tasty cheese, grated
3/4 cup raw macadamias, chopped roughly



Combine the flour, yeast and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Combine water and olive oil and pour into the well. Using a knife, stir together the water mixture with the flour mixture until it comes together and starts to form a ball.

Place the ball onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes, adding more flour if the mixture is too sticky. Place the dough in a lightly oiled mixing bowl, cover with plastic wrap and stand in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Punch down the dough and place on a lightly floured surface. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out to a 30cm square. Spread with Vegemite and sprinkle with cheese and macadamias.

Roll the dough into one long scroll and cut into 10 pieces. Place the pieces, cut side down onto a lightly oiled baking tray in a circular pattern, leaving at least 3cm between pieces for them to spread. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and place the tray in a warm place until pieces have doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180°C. Place tray in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden. Serve warm or when cool.
