Lemony Lemon Scrolls

Makes 16 scrolls Prep Time 3 hours   Cook Time 20 minutes   Rated:

This recipe originally appears in Merry Christmix and has been a firm favourite as a Christmas breakfast option...but I say, Christmas breakfast comes but once a year and that is far too infrequent to wait to make these, so dammit...here they are showing up in a January posting to the site. GO AND MAKE...they are completely off the charts delish! (If I say so may-self!!)

They are best eaten the day of baking, so if you are a small family, be prepared to eat them all, or invite the neighbours over. Don’t say I didn’t warn you...

Either way, when life hands you lemons, I have got you covered!!

Preheat oven to 180°C.


Filling: Without cleaning, place all ingredients into Thermomix bowl and blend 1 min/speed 10.


Remove filling from bowl and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.


Assemble scrolls by rolling dough into a large rectangle approx. 2cm thick. Spread filling over, right to the edges. Roll up and cut into 12 rounds, placing cut side up into a baking dish.

When well risen, place into oven and cook for 20–25 minutes until golden and fragrant. Cool before frosting.


To make frosting, place all ingredients into clean, dry Thermomix bowl and blend 1 min/speed 5, stopping and scraping down sides of bowl as needed.


Spread onto cooled scrolls and serve!
