2 cups of flour

1 tablespoon paprika
4 teaspoons baking powder

¼ cup sweet chilli sauce


  1.  Preheat oven to 200C.
  2. Sieve flour, baking powder, salt and paprika into a large bowl. Now add the grated cheese and milk. Stir until well combined. The mixture will be wet and sticky.
  3. Dust a chopping board with flour and divide the mixture into 4. Create 4 rectangular shapes and place them onto the chopping board.
  4. Brush sweet chilli all over. Add 3 slices of shaved ham to each scroll. The ham should be slightly overlapping each other.
  5. Place a tablespoon of cream cheese at the bottom of the scroll then start rolling it over, starting from the cream cheese end. Roll until you have a perfect scroll. Brush some more sweet chilli over the top.
  6. Place the scrolls onto a lined baking tray and put into the oven for 20-25 minutes.
