Hey guys! Today I’m sharing a recipe that I made very recently- this morning, in fact! My teacher described it as a cross between a pizza and Swiss roll(delightful(!)) and I have to say, after eating them, I agree with the pizza part! My mouth’s already watering, so here we go:
Savoury Buns(8 rolls)
- 200g strong plain flour
- 1/2 tsp dried yeast
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp sugar
- Tepid Water
- Dry flour
- 25g butter
- 100g cheddar cheese
- 2 tbsp tomato puree
- 1 small onion
- Pre-heat oven to 190 degrees or gas mark 6. Line a small sandwich tin with greaseproof paper using a tsp oil.
- Into a large mixing bowl, add 200g flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Add tepid water, then mix into a dough. Tip: If your dough becomes too watery, add some extra flour or a tbsp or so of oil to help mix it back to a good texture.
- Flour the surface and knead for 5/10 mins. The longer and harder you do it, the better your dough’s going to be! A good check is if you press it down with your finger, it should bounce back up.
- Put the dough back into bowl and cover in clingfilm. Put it into the oven for 10/15 minutes to prove or you could wrap it up and leave it outside for a couple of hours.
- In the meantime, chop up an onion very finely. If you have a big onion, you could get away with half the onion as well. Grate the cheese on a separate plate.
- Re-flour the surface and roll out the dough into a long square/ rectangle shape. This will be difficult as if your dough has been kneaded as well it will keep springing back.
- Cut the butter into little chunks as spread onto the dough. Add the tomato puree, followed by the onion and the cheese. Ensure you spread the toppings out evenly. The dough should somewhat resemble a pizza.
- Roll it up from the horizontal side/ the longest side. You’ll have a long snake of dough. Be gentle whilst rolling up and don’t let the toppings spill out.
- Chop the “snake” into eights and then put each roll sideways so you can see the swirls of the toppings facing upwards into the tin.
- Place in the oven and bake for 15/20 minutes until golden brown.
- Serve and enjoy!
Don’t they taste like pizza? They did, didn’t they? Did you like them? Of course you did! Who doesn’t like pizza?!? Next time, I think it would be fun to have some more toppings. If you find the time to make them, let me know what extra delicious toppings you added. As for me, I still have 2 more days till my half term(so close,yet so far away..), so your pictures would really cheer me up! Looking forward to seeing them!
