for 3-4 minutes until light golden. Remove to a plate lined with paper towel.

  1. Spoon the flour into a food processor. Add the butter, pulse until butter rubbed into the flour. Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Combine the milk and water and pour into flour mixture, stir gently with a knife to form a soft dough.
  1. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently to bring dough together. Roll the dough out on a sheet baking paper to 25 x 36cm rectangle. Sprinkle half the cheese over the dough. Scatter over the banana, bacon and remaining cheese.
  1. Starting from the long-side, roll the dough up to form a log. Trim ends. Cut into 10 equal 3cm-thick rounds. Place each scroll, cut side up, into the greased muffin pan. Bake for 35 minutes or until golden.
  1. Brush hot pinwheels with melted butter, scatter over the thyme and parmesan. Serve warm or at room temperature.


You can use tasty cheese, parmesan or mozzarella or a combination of all three.
