I spotted this super easy recipe on a facebook group I belong too and decided I definitely needed to road test it! It is the simplest dough recipe, there are only two ingredients. I made cinnamon scrolls, because they are my favourite, but the dough is suitable for both sweet or savoury fillings.
1 cup of plain greek yoghurt
2 cups of Self-raising flour
Place both ingredients in a bowl and mix to combine.
Place the dough onto a floured board or bench.
Then roll out to a square about 12 inches by 12 inches (30 x 30 cms).
Approx 30g melted butter
1/3 cup packed Brown sugar
1 tablespoon Cinnamon
Melt butter and spread over the rolled out dough.
In a separate bowl mix the brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle it out over the dough – leaving 1cm at each edge.
Roll carefully, seal the edge and slice about 1 inch (2 cm) thick pieces. Place flat on a baking tray (lined with grease-proof/baking paper) Brush over with an egg wash
Bake at 180 °C in oven for about 15-20 mins until golden
Cool a little and eat.
This was such a simple and easy recipe to make. To be honest I was a little sceptical regarding whether or not it would work, but the scrolls were light and fluffy and tasted delicious. The flavour is really good too, there is a little bit of a tang from the yoghurt which a nice change from regular bread or scone dough.
The options are pretty limitless for fillings. You could make sweet scrolls filled with Nutella, or Maple and pecan filling. For a savoury option how about ham, cheese, pineapple and tomato paste, or perhaps Vegemite and cheese.
The scrolls freeze well, so you can make a batch and freeze them for school lunches. Apparently they can be cooked in the slow cooker as well on high for 1.5 hours, but I haven’t tried that option yet.
