Warm strawberry scrolls



Yields  4

  • 200g strawberries, hulled, sliced
  • 3 teaspoons caster sugar
  • 1/2 lemon, rind finely grated
  • 3/4 cup self-raising flour
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon pure icing sugar, to serve
  • 1/3 cup 99% fat-free pouring custard, to serve

Directions for the Warm strawberry scrolls

  1. Step 1Place strawberries in a bowl. Sprinkle 2 teaspoons of caster sugar and all the lemon rind over strawberries.
  2. Step 2Preheat oven to 230°C. Lightly grease four 3/4-cup capacity (180ml) non-stick Texas muffin holes.
  3. Step 3Sift flour and remaining caster sugar into a small bowl. Add buttermilk. Using a knife, mix to form a soft dough (add a little water if necessary.) Turn dough onto a lightly-floured surface. Knead lightly until smooth. Roll out to a 20cm square.
  4. Step 4Place three-quarters of the strawberries in a single layer over the dough, leaving a 2cm border at the top and bottom. Roll up dough to form a log. Using a sharp knife, cut log into 4 even slices. Place 1 scroll in each muffin hole. Press down lightly.
  5. Step 5Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden. Stand scrolls for 5 minutes in pan. Place warm scrolls on a serving plate. Spoon over remaining strawberries with juice. Sift over icing sugar. Serve with custard.
