Rasberry, polenta and pink peppercorn scrolls


1.Combine flour, polenta, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Add buttermilk and syrup. Using a butter knife, ‘cut’ through the mixture until a rough dough forms.
2.Using a mortar and pestle, crush pink peppercorns. Stir in extract, rind and 1 tablespoon of the extra syrup.
3.Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly. Press out into a 18cm x 28cm rectangle; spread with peppercorn mixture. Using your hands, tear raspberries into small pieces and sprinkle over dough.
4.Starting from one long side, roll up dough to form a log. Cut log into 8 slices. Place slices 5cm, cut-side up, on tray. Bake for 25 minutes or until scrolls are risen and light golden. Brush with remaining extra syrup. Serve warm.

Pink peppercorns are unrelated to black peppercorns, they carry no heat and have a pine-like taste slightly similar to juniper berries. If unavailable don’t worry, the recipe will still have plenty of flavour without them. The scrolls are best eaten warm on the day of making. If made earlier in the day, reheat in the oven before serving.
