Passionfruit Scrolls



My little sister’s birthday is today, and one of her favourite flavours is passionfruit. I spent days trying to figure out what I could make for her… do I make a cake? Tart? I found a recipe for these scrolls and they looked damn tasty. It’s also the beginning of Winter, so I thought something warm straight out of the oven would be really nice too.  This is a really easy recipe and she loved it! 

Passionfruit Scrolls

Makes 8 scrolls

  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • 2 TBS icing sugar
  • 80g butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup creme anglaise (or custard)
  • 2 TBS passionfruit pulp

For the icing

  • 1/4 cup icing sugar
  • 1 TBS passionfruit pulp

Preheat the oven to 210C and line a tray with baking paper.

Combine the flour, sugar and butter in a food processor. Process until the mixture resembles bread crumbs. Add the milk and stir until a dough comes together. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Roll into a rectangle, approximately 25cm x 35cm. Spread with the creme anglaise or custard and top with the passionfruit pulp. Starting with the long side closest to you, tightly roll into a log. Trim the edges and discard, and cut the roll into eight equal portions.

Arrange the pieces cut-side down onto your prepared baking tray. Leave a little bit of room between each scroll (they will expand). Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Mix together the sugar and passionfruit to make an icing. When the scrolls are cooked, drizzle the icing using a fork and serve immediately with some extra creme anglaise.
