Desserts , Breakfast , Baking


Dough Ingredients:
1 ½ cups milk
3 tsp active yeast
1 tbsp sugar
4 cups plain flour
1 egg
½ tsp salt

Salted Butterscotch Ingredients:
1 cup cream
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp vanilla
60g butter

Scroll Filling Ingredients:
3-4 Peas Good Nonsuch apples
80g butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon


Make the dough by warming the milk (don’t make it too hot, just luke warm) and add the yeast and sugar and mix. Allow to sit for 10 minutes until it becomes frothy.
Place the flour in a bowl with the salt, make a well in the centre and add the egg and then the yeast/milk mix. Mix until the dough comes together. Cover and set aside for 40 minutes. While the dough is resting make the butterscotch sauce. In a pot add the cream, brown sugar and vanilla. Bring to the boil. Continue to boil for 2-3 minutes before removing from the heat and whisking in the butter and sea salt. Set aside to cool. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Melt the butter. In a separate bowl, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon. Lightly dust the bench with flour, roll the bread to out to a 30x40cm rectangle. Brush the dough with melted butter and sprinkle over 1/3 of the cinnamon/sugar mix. Roll the dough again and then repeat the process. Repeat the folding process one more time. Peel and grate the apples. Roll the dough out one last time to a 30 x 40cm rectangle, spread with about ½ - 2/3 of the butterscotch sauce and then sprinkle over the grated apple. Roll the dough up from the long edge to create a long scroll. Cut the dough into 12 pieces and place them into a lined baking tray/cake tin*. Drizzle over the remaining butterscotch sauce and leave the scrolls loosely covered for 15 minutes to rise before baking. Bake the scrolls for approx. 20 minutes until the dough is cooked. Check one of the inside scrolls to make sure. Allow to cool for a few minutes and then dig in!


*You can use a loose bottom cake tin if you want perfectly round scrolls. If you would prefer, a rectangle baking tray is fine too but the outside scrolls will not be completely round.
