Dark Chocolate Scrolls

Dark Chocolate Scrolls

Today I find myself in this shiny new blogging space which feels something like settling into a new kitchen.  I am still finding my way around; working out the best place to put the metaphorical yoghurt bowls, wooden spoons and baking dishes.

I have JJ from 84th and 3rd to thank for the behind the scenes work.  JJ made this transition completely seamless and along the way made me realise how little I actually know about the more technical points of blogging.  Thank you JJ, I am grateful for your patience and attention to detail.

In this new space I plan to continue to share photos and stories about baking, gardening and my life in the outback.  I will use this page as a base for other projects that may come along but most importantly I hope it keeps me connected to those dedicated people who still read and comment on blogs.  Some of my older posts may look a little wonky but if feels reassuring to have all of my archives in one place.

Dark Chocolate Scrolls

A new kitchen always feels better once the fridge and pantry are fully stocked and something tasty has been baked, so today I am sharing this recipe for Dark Chocolate Scrolls.  The filling for these scrolls is only limited by your imagination but dark chocolate is always a winning option in my house.

Dark Chocolate Scrolls
Serves: 8
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup of milk warmed to around 30°C
  • 150 g butter melted
  • 75 g castor sugar
  • 1 x 7g sachet dry yeast
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 600 g plain flour
  • 100 g dark chocolate chopped finely
  • Icing sugar to serve
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, add warmed milk, melted butter and castor sugar. Add yeast and allow to stand for 5 minutes without mixing.
  2. Add the egg, salt and half of the flour and stir in using a dough hook attachment or by hand.
  3. Add the remaining flour and continue mixing until the dough forms a smooth ball, approximately 6-7 minutes.
  4. Lightly grease a large bowl. Transfer the dough into the greased bowl, cover and leave in a warm place for 3 hours or until the dough has doubled in size.
  5. Line a 24cm cake tin or baking dish with baking paper. Set aside.
  6. Roll out the dough to a rectangle approximately 30cm long, 17cm wide and 2cm thick. Cut lengthways into 8 strips, approximately 3cm wide.
  7. Spread a thin layer of chocolate over each strip.
  8. Carefully roll up the strip to form a spiral. Place the roll into the prepared tin or baking dish, spiral facing upwards. Repeat with all remaining dough. Pack the spirals neatly into the tin, leaving 3-4 centimetres between each scroll. Sprinkle any excess chocolate over the top. Cover tin with cling wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  9. Remove the buns from the refrigerator and place somewhere warm for 2 hours.
  10. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  11. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until dark golden in colour.

  12. Sprinkle with finely sifted icing sugar to serve. Best eaten warm or on the same day.

    Your new space looks amazing Jane!! I’d love to know some of the finer details about the swap over; what it involved and how you’re finding it and whether people are finding you. I probably should follow along sooner rather than later. x

      It is very early days Kate…I am really still finding my feet. I am not the one to tell you about the swap over apart from the bare basics, my friend JJ did all of the behind the scenes work and made it look very easy. So far I am finding actually writing posts and managing my photos in WP very easy, there are so many options that I am sure I may never use but it is all there! Most of my more active friends (like you!) have found me quickly. I am really pleased I made the switch, Blogger had started to do some strange things to me. Also, a lot of my peeps are on WP and I am sure it is easier for them to interact with me now. Time will tell but it feels right! x
