Savoury Roll 09.09.15`


225g/8oz Odlums Cream Plain Flour

1 teaspoon Baking Powder

Salt & Pepper

50g/2oz Margarine (at room temperature)

75g/3oz Grated Cheddar Cheese

75g/3oz Cooked Ham (chopped)

150ml/¼ pint Milk

1 Egg

1 teaspoon Wholegrain Mustard

A little Milk for brushing

Wedges of Tomato to garnish.


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6. Lightly grease a flat baking sheet or baking tray.
  2. Sieve flour, baking powder, salt and pepper into a mixing bowl. Rub in the margarine.
  3. Add the cheese (keeping back about a tablespoonful for decorating!) and ham and mix well.
  4. In a small bowl beat the milk, egg and mustard. Add to the dry ingredients and stir to form a soft dough.
  5. Turn onto a lightly floured board and gently knead. Shape into a roll about 20cm/8” in length.
  6. Make 8 cuts about 1”/3cm apart along one side of the roll. Place on the baking sheet and curve the roll so that the cuts made splay out!
  7. Lightly brush with milk and sprinkle over the reserved cheese.
  8. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes until cheese on top is melted and golden brown in colour.
  9. Cool on a wire tray. Garnish by placing the tomato wedges into the “splays” on the loaf.
  10. Serve with soup or cheese.
