“This was my talented assistant Claire’s idea – a new take on a Swiss roll with cheese spiralling all the way through as it bakes and turning crunchy on the outside.” – Hannah Lewry


  • 500 g white bread flour
  • ½ t sugar
  • 1 t smoked paprika
  • salt, a pinch
  • 1 t instant dried yeast
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 3 T apricot jam
  • 150 g Woolworths mature Gouda

Cooking Instructions

1. Combine the flour, sugar, paprika and salt and sprinkle over the yeast. Mix to combine, then add just enough water to form a stiff dough.

2. Knead the dough until it’s elastic and no longer sticks to your hands. Grease a bowl with canola oil and place the dough in the bowl. Cover with a damp tea towel and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled in size.

3. Brush a work surface with canola oil and knock down the dough. Roll out into a 25 x 45 cm rectangle, then brush with the apricot jam and sprinkle over the cheese.

4. Roll from the bottom upwards to form a log, then cut into 6–8 pieces. Prove on an oiled baking tray, covered with a tea towel, for 20 minutes. Oil slightly and place on a braai grid. Braai over warm coals until golden, rotating every few minutes until evenly browned and cooked through.
