An easy Sunday bake for you. Super easy and something to whip up for morning tea. Eat them warm and enjoy a cuppa. The original recipe is available here, but I’ve changed it up to include our diced fruit mix
DRIED FRUIT and ORANGE SCROLLS
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tblspns dried citrus power (I simply crushed some dried citrus slices, the original recipe uses zest)
1 2/3 cups of whole-wheat plain flour ( I used @woodford)
2 tspn baking powder
1/4 tspn salt
3 tblspn cold butter cut in cubes
2 tblspn cream cheese
2/3 cup milk
2 tblspn Spectacular diced dried fruit mix
2 tblspn softened butter for filling
For the glaze
1/4 cup cream cheese
3 tblspn icing sugar
2 tblspn orange juice
Turn the oven on to 180 degrees Celsius.
Mix the brown sugar with the dried citrus. Put 2 tblspn of the orange sugar mix in a bowl that you’ll make the dough in. Keep the remaining sugar mix for the filling.
Add the flour, baking powder, salt and mix through. Add the butter and cream cheese pieces. Rub through the flour mix until all combined and the mix is crumbling.
Make a well in your flour mix and pour the milk in. Mix through all the ingredients then put your dough (wrapped) in the freezer to cool. While the dough is cooling grease your dish - I used a shallow casserole dish and greased very well with butter.
Unwrap the dough into your floured surface. Roll the dough out to about 26cm x 12cm. It was a bit sticky. Spread the softened butter then sprinkle your dried fruit/sugar mix over the dough.
I started with short side and slow rolled the dough, using a scraper to make the rolling pretty easy. I covered the log in plastic or beeswax (if you have one big enough) and then put the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Take the dough out and unwrap. I measured out 8 pieces in the log. You can use a cerated knife to slice each scroll but I find using a piece of cotton to make each cut in the dough (see my Instagram for a demo of this). Place your first slice in the centre of your pan then place the rest evenly around it (about 1cm apart).
Bake until golden on top (I did sprinkle any leftover dried fruit/sugar mix over each scroll). It took about 25-27 mins in my oven.
While the scrolls are cooking mix together the glaze ingredients.
Once the scrolls are cooked, let cool for a few mins and then pour/spread the glaze on.
Eat warm and enjoy xxx Makes approx 8-9 scrolls
