Cheesy Vegemite Stuffed Damper Rolls Recipe

How to Make Cheesy Vegemite Stuffed Damper Rolls


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (or 180°C fan forced). Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl. Use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  2. Add the water to the flour mixture and, using a knife, cut through, until the mixture just comes together, add 1-2 tablespoons extra water if the mixture is a little dry. Use your hands to form a dough ball.
  3. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for 1-2 minutes or until smooth.
  4. Cut the damper dough into thirds and shape into 3 equal-sized balls. Place each damper ball on the lined tray. Press each one, lightly with fingertips. Dust the dampers with a little extra flour and bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until the dampers are cooked through and sound hollow when tapped on their bases.
  5. Transfer dampers onto a wire rack for 5 minutes to cool slightly.
  6. Whilst they are cooling, cut up carrots and celery sticks. In a microwave container, add cheese spread and microwave in 20 second bursts, on medium heat, until it is runny.
  7. With a serrated-edge knife, carefully remove the lids from each of the dampers and hollow out the middle. Fill each damper with the warm cheese.
  8. Add the thickened cream to the vegemite and stir to combine.
  9. Add the vegemite mix to the cheese and swirl though. 
  10. Serve warm with carrots, celery and crackers.

Optional: Use other vegetables such as broccoli for dipping.
