Scrumptious Strawberry Scroll Log

Believe it or not this lil one was whipped up in about 5 minutes last night while OH and I were waiting for Mum and Dad to arrive for dinner. It could easily be served as a dessert hot out of the oven with some cream, you could wrap it up for a lunch box treat or you could serve it at a fancy morning / afternoon tea! (We do seem to be on a versatile dish theme this week don't we!)

Ok so all you need is

1 x box pastry mix (cheating I know)
250g fresh strawberries (washed, hulled and finely diced)
100g butter
3/4 cup caster sugar

Make pastry mix as per instructions. Roll out on a floured surface into a large rectangle.
Pre-heat oven to 150C (fan forced)
Melt butter and sugar together.
Spread 3/4 butter mix over the pastry, leaving a 2cm gap on long edges.
Scatter strawberries over butter mix.
Starting from a long edge, roll pastry up into a log.
Transfer to a lined and greased oven tray.
Bring ends of roll together to create a circle.
Pour remaining butter and sugar mixture over the top and use a pastry brush to ensure all surfaces are covered.
Bake for around 20 mins or until pastry is golden and cooked through.
Slice into sections and serve hot or cold, plain or with ice cream or cream or straight off the pan!!

Happy Wednesday!
