Brownies & Pizza Scrolls

Yesterday I spent the morning in the kitchen trying a couple of new recipes.  The first one was from Kate Berry at Lunch Lady called "The Easiest Brownies on the Planet" and the second one was "Pizza Scrolls" from Be a Fun Mum.


The brownies are delicious and I will be making this recipe again and again.  I have a really nice chocolate slice recipe but Kate's brownie recipe has zucchini in it which means another form of vegetables into the kids without them noticing.  I did tell them what was in it after they had eaten it but it was way to yummy to worry about zucchini being in it and the zucchini gives the brownie the moisture.

There are no eggs or butter in this recipe and when you mix it altogether you think, I must have left something out because it's not a wet mix, quite dry and I thought when I cooked it, it may just crumble because it was so dry.  It didn't however I would probably leave the final mixture sit on the bench in the bowl for 5 minutes or so to let the moisture come out of the zucchini before putting transferring it to your baking tray and pressing it down.  Seriously you have to make this recipe as it's a winner in this household.  It ends up with a nice crunchy top and moist inside and I just sprinkled icing sugar on top and then cut it up into bite size pieces and put them into a container and straight into the freezer before I ate anymore of it.



I've made lots of pizza's in my time however I've never made pizza scrolls and they were pretty easy.  Roll out your pizza dough thinly, top with sauce and toppings and then roll up and cut and place the pizza scrolls on the tray and bake in the oven.  The kids have gone off to school with a couple of these in their lunch boxes so I'm keen to see how they like them cold for lunch.  They tried one at afternoon tea yesterday and enjoyed them.  I know Sienna will love them cold, James is a little bit more fuzzy with his food.  I've popped the rest of them into a zip lock bag for the freezer so I can just take them out as needed.

  1. Hi Kathy,
    Nothing to do with pizza scrolls (although they look delicious), but I was wondering how your sister was going? melindi

    1. I've seen them so often and never made them..seriously so simple...it's just thin pizza rolled up and baked. They sell these in the bakery for a few dollars. You can do anything, chicken and corn would be nice. Vegemite and cheese. Regards Kathy

  5. Those brownies sound lovely. I have a beetroot brownies recipe on my blog that is tasty too and a good way to hide the veggies. I like to look of those scrolls and I know Hubby loves scrolls so I might give them a go.
