Snail Rolls Recipe~

By request of Nabby J, here is my very own Snail Rolls recipe you can try at home. I first attempted to make this mini-breads few months back I think I've posted the photos of em too on this very blog~ Below are the required ingredients and directions to bake your own Snail Rolls:
Snail Rolls with Butterscotch Chips


  • 500g all-purpose/wheat flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 tspn salt
  • 2 tspn sugar
  • 1 tspn baking yeast
  • herbs (basil&parsley, for salty rolls) or raisins/blackcurrants & allspice (for sweet rolls) or chocolate/butterscotch chips
  • hand-hot water, as required
  • vegetable oil/any fats to be rubbed on the surface of dough pan/container


  1. Mix the eggs and hand-hot water lightly together to make 300ml in a measuring jug.
  2. Add together the flour, salt, sugar, yeast and your choice of either herbs (eg parsley/basil), raisins/blackcurrants and allspice or even chocolate/butterscotch chips. Rub in the butter with your fingertips until you get a breadcrumb-like mixture.
  3. Make a well out of the flour mixture and pour the eggs in the middle of it. Then, work the two until you get a soft-textured dough.
  4. On a floured surface, knead the dough for 10 minutes and cut the dough into any numbers you'd prefer (in my case, usually I would get around 16 pieces of rolls) and then roll the dough into the shape of a snail.
  5. After rolling them all, keep the dough pieces in an air-tight container and leave for an hour to rise.
  6. Bake at the temperature of 220 deg Celcius for around 15++ minutes (best to observe the bakings, you can tell that their done when the rolls' color turns medium brown).

Happy baking and all the best :)
