Jam Scrolls

I have made these jam scrolls three times so far and every time they disappear before I can even get the camera out.

You can use the base recipe and then add whatever filling you like in the middle, so far I have used blackberry jam, strawberry jam and these ones were filled with breakfast marmalade.

Recipe type: Scrolls
  • 100ml lukewarm milk
  • 60g caster sugar
  • 7g dry yeast or 20gr fresh yeast
  • 3 eggs, room temperature
  • 500g plain flour
  • 50g partially melted butter
  • jam filling of your choice
  1. combine milk, sugar and yeast in a jug, if using dry yeast, allow to stand for about 5 minutes to activate, it should froth a little. if it doesn't it may not be active so best start again
  2. place yeast mixture in a bowl of a mixer with a dough hook and start mixing
  3. add eggs and a pinch of salt and continue mixing
  4. add flour whilst mixer is still going and then slowly add the butter and mix on low until mixture is well combined
  5. increase speed and allow the dough to knead for another 5 minutes until smooth and elastic
  6. take the dough out of the bowl, spray bowl with oil spray and place dough back in and cover with plastic wrap
  7. allow to stand in a warm place for about 1 hour or until doubled in size
  8. take the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 30 sec
  9. roll out to a rectangle, 30 x 60cm with the longest side facing you
  10. spread with jam of your choice leaving a few centimetre border all around, if the jam is too thick, microwave for about 10-20 seconds to soften
  11. roll dough from the longest side to form a long thin roll, cut into 12 even pieces and place in a greased 20x30cm pan allowing room for them to expand
  12. sprinkle with raw sugar, cover with plastic wrap and place in a warm spot for another 30 minutes or until doubled in size
  13. preheat oven to 180C and bake until golden, about 25-30minutes, you may need to check half way through baking time and rotate pan
I hope you enjoy this and if you don’t have an electric mixer with a dough attachment you can knead it all by hand, about 8-10 minutes until it’s elastic and smooth


A few of you asked about the girls, we have four now,  a couple of Isa browns, a Golden laced wyandotte and a Black Ancona.  
They are great to have around but anything new in the garden they will dig up so veggies need to be covered as they can be destructive.

Happy Wednesday to you all ♥
