For Ondulado : 2 cups would equate to 300 grams. 'tab' is an abbreviation for 'tablespoon'. Hope this helps-09 May 2012

This is a comment rather than a review, as I was looking forward to this but unfortunately I have no idea what measurement is meant by "cup" or "tab". These do not exist in the Uk or Spain where I live. If anyone knows the answer, please update with ounces or grams. Thanks-09 May 2012

This sounds so delicious! And original too! Must have a go at these on the weekend!-25 Aug 2011

Cheese and Vegemite Scrolls

Cheese and Vegemite Scrolls (or Cheesymite Scrolls) are an Aussie favourite! These light and fluffy scrolls are made from two ingredient dough (no yeast) and are super quick and easy to prepare. Great for lunch boxes or after school snacks.

Cheese and Vegemite Scrolls (or Cheesymite Scrolls) are a quintessential Aussie bakery treat. They are also surprisingly simple to make at home!

These quick and easy scrolls are made with the miracle two ingredient dough - no yeast or proofing required!

They are a favourite among kids and adults alike, and freeze well so you can make a big batch and portion them out in lunch boxes.

Don't want to make your own dough? Try these Vegemite and Cheese Pinwheels that are made with frozen puff pastry!

2. Meat pie

They're a staple at sporting events and parties and the cause of many a burnt tongue — the humble meat pie is the epitome of Australian food.

The meat pie hit our shores at the same time as the First Fleet, and by 1891 George Sargent was commercially producing them in Sydney.

Today meat pies are so popular that Australians eat an average of 12 a year — that's 270 million pies (according to Food Standards Australia).

And while there's plenty of gourmet varieties now on the market, it is hard to go past the old-school flaky pastry containing diced or minced meat with gravy.


Is this the most Australian dish ever invented? The Vegemite lamington

INTRODUCING the Vegemite lamington. Yes, you read correctly.

The Vegemite lamington. Source:Supplied

THE team at delicious have taken the country’s favourite salty, umami-rich spread and used it to add something remarkably delicious to a traditional fluffy lamington. The result? A still sweet, slightly salty dessert that’s bound to be a talking point at your Australia Day party.

300g unsalted butter, softened

1 1/3 cup (295g) caster sugar

3 cups (450g) self-raising flour

1 cup (70g) shredded coconut

300g dark (70%) chocolate, chopped

1 cup (120g) pure icing sugar, sifted

1. Preheat oven to 170ଌ. Grease and line two 20cm square cake pans with baking paper. Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar over medium-high speed until thick and pale. Add the vanilla, then add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Reduce speed to low, then add one-third flour, then one-third milks. Repeat, alternating between flour and milks, beating until combined.

2. Divide batter evenly between pans and bake for 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cool cakes in pans for 10mins, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

3. Meanwhile, for the ganache, place the cream in a saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer. Place the vegemite and chocolate in a heatproof bowl and pour over hot cream. Set aside for 5 minutes or until chocolate has melted, then stir until smooth. Add the icing sugar and whisk until smooth and combined.

4. Using an electric mixer, whisk the cream and sour cream until thick.

5. Trim the sides of the cakes and cut each into 9 equal squares. Ice 5 sides of each square, then decorate with coconut. Sandwich together with cream and jam to create 9 large lamingtons.

How To Make Pinwheels

Turn the oven on to preheat to 200C (390F) while assembling the pinwheels. Line a baking tray (or trays) with baking paper and set them aside.

Now, get your ingredients ready – puff pastry and toppings.

1. Defrost puff pastry sheets

Remove as many as you think will be required from the freezer and allow to thaw for 10-15 minutes (maybe more depending on temperature). Remember, pinwheels are best eaten on the day they are prepared (but can also be eaten the next day) so don’t prepare too many.

2. Add the toppings

Spread the pastry sheets with the desired topping…

…and roll up firmly. Make sure the edge of the pastry is sealed or the pinwheels won’t hold together well. This can be done by just brushing along the edge with a bit of water or milk and pushing gently with your finger. It should look like this…

Now, one trick with the pinwheels is taking a bit of care when rolling them (I’ve learnt this from experience). You don’t want them too tight as there needs to be a little room for the puff pastry to expand. On the other hand, you don’t want them too loose or they will spread and not stand nice and upright when cooked. Here’s an example of a ‘spreading’ pinwheel…

They still taste great but just don’t look as pretty. Once the pastry is rolled and sealed, cut it with a sharp knife into quarters and put the pinwheels onto prepared baking tray. You might need to gently reshape them so they are nice and round (I didn’t do a great job at that)…

Put them into the oven and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until nice and golden. Once ready, remove them and allow to cool slightly before serving. Or, if eating later, allow them to cool on a wire rack.

Cheese and Vegemite make such a delicious combination. Add some beautiful light scone mixture and turn this into a scroll, which not only tastes great, but you can freeze them!

Perfect for the school lunch box, or a snack on the go! These snacks are also super affordable, at only 30c each.

This Cheesy Vegemite Scrolls recipe makes 10, but you can easily double it or more. You’ll never buy a pre-made scroll again!!

For the price estimates here we’ve used a large national supermarket, but it’s possible (and highly encouraged) for you to look around at your local farmers market, local butcher or at discount grocers. You’re likely to find many of these ingredients even cheaper there!

Preheat oven to 220 degrees.

Sift flour and salt into a bowl. Rub in the butter until the mixture looks like fine bread-crumbs.

Stir in enough milk to make a soft dough. Knead on a lightly floured board.

Roll to form a rectangle that is roughly 40cm x 25cm.

Spread Vegemite over the dough using a blunt knife.

Sprinkle 3/4 of the cheese over the top.

Roll up the dough starting from a long side first. Cut 10 × 4cm pieces from the roll.

Place these pieces close together, cut side up on a greased baking tray. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese over the top.

Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden.

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Our Cheesy Vegemite Scrolls can be frozen in freezer bags for up to two months and defrosted when needed :)
  • If making and eating fresh, keep for no longer than two days.

Cheese and Vegemite Scrolls

I usually make the scrolls the night before and add to the kids lunchboxes or have them fresh on weekends for lunch. You could use the base of this recipe for many different varieties:

  • ham and cheese
  • bacon and cheese
  • ham, capsicum, pineapple and cheese
  • ham, pineapple and cheese
  • chicken and sweet chilli
  • pizza sauce and cheese
  • salami and cheese
  • vegemite and cheese
  • spinach and fetta
  • sundried tomatoes, basil and cheese
  • ham, tomato and cheese
  • pesto and cheese

Make the dough, find full recipe below. I make my dough on a silicon mat, as it’s a tedious job to clean the dough off the kitchen bench.

Roll to form a rectangle that is roughly 40cm x 25cm (this is not a thermomix recipe, I just use a large silicon mat from Thermomix).

Spread vegemite over the dough using a blunt knife, then sprinkle cheese over the top.

Roll up the dough starting from a long side first.

Cut 10 x 4cm pieces from the roll. Place these pieces close together, cut side up on a greased baking tray.

Bake in the oven for 15-20 min or until golden.

A great, non sandwich idea for the lunchboxes. Find lunch box ideas here.

Delicious recipes to try in your Kmart pie maker

This handy appliance can make more than just the standard pie.

Understandably, the first recipe we'd expect to be able to make in the Kmart pie maker is a meat pie - and this beef and mushroom pie is just the ticket. Get creative with fillings like this Thai chicken pie recipe, or even this chicken, brie and cranberry pie.

I think it's pretty safe to say that cookies and cream is a popular flavour for just about any dessert. Here, we've shared our recipe for an easy cookies and cream pies recipe that has been adapted to your the pie maker.

These cinnamon scrolls are full of flavour and super easy to make in your pie-maker.

Making delicious fruit mince pies just got a whole lot easier with your Kmart pie maker.

No need to worry about pre-heating the oven when you make muffins in your Kmart pie maker! Cooking times will vary from the recipe, so keep your eyes on these muffins as they cook. You'll know they're cooked through when a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.

These berry and yoghurt muffins are sure to go down a treat, and we can't get enough of these maple gingerbread muffins! And let's not forget the classic blueberry muffin.

Like muffins, these friand recipes are easily adapted to your Kmart pie maker. These almond and strawberry and almond friands are a great first try, or honey pistachio friands. Don't forget to test with a skewer to see if they're cooked through.

Whip up some of these delicious tart recipes in your Kmart pie maker! Recipes like these caramel tarts are perfect - they don't even use pastry! Neenish tarts would also work well, as would these jam drop tarts or mixed berry tarts.

Don't worry! You're still reading that article about Kmart pie maker recipes! Yes - your Kmart pie maker is actually really good at making eggs. If you struggle to make poached eggs the traditional way you can crack an egg into you Kmart pie maker instead! Simply add a few teaspoons of hot water to your heated pie maker, crack an egg in and let it cook for 3-5 minutes. Once you've cooked your easy-peasy poached egg serve it on top of mixed mushrooms and smoked salmon for stunning brunch.

Your Kmart pie maker can also create the perfect cooked eggs to add to a bacon and egg roll. Follow the steps above but cook the egg for a little longer for a tender cooked egg that won't drip all over the shop!

So they won't come out looking like these mini pancakes but this pikelet recipe will be delicious in your Kmart pie maker. Think of those adorable fat and fluffy dutch pannenkoeken. Add some bluberries to the batter, or serve with a generous drizzle of lemon juice and a sprinkle of sugar.

Australia Day Recipes, Colouring Pages & Music

Australia Day is a day that means many different things to many people. The National Australia Day Council website describes it as a day to reflect, respect and celebrate. Reflect on our history, its highs and its lows. Respect the stories of others, and celebrate our nation, its achievements and most of all, its people. Many people like to enjoy the public holiday and come together with friends and family to celebrate being an Aussie, to have a BBQ, swim in the pool, or play a backyard game of cricket. To help make this day as memorable as possible, I’ve put together a collection of traditional Australian recipes (including a few with an interesting twist!), an Aussie music playlist, and some free colouring-in printables to keep the young ones entertained too!

Get your thongs and togs on, and celebrate with some lamingtons, Vegemite scrolls, pavlova and meat pies! Here’s my collection of Australian recipes that are set to impress.
