Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced). Grease two 20cm square cake pans; line with baking paper.


Sift dry ingredients into a bowl; rub in butter with your fingertips. Add buttermilk and mix to a soft, sticky dough.


Turn dough onto a floured surface; divide in half. Working with one half at a time, knead lightly until smooth. Place each half on floured baking paper; roll into a 30cm x 40cm rectangle.


Microwave Vegemite in a small microwave-safe heatproof bowl on LOW (30%) for 10 seconds to soften; spread over one dough rectangle. Top with half the cheddar. Roll dough tightly from a long side. Using a serrated knife, trim ends slightly; cut roll into 9 slices. Place scrolls, cut-side up, in one lined pan; sprinkle with remaining cheddar.


Bake scrolls for 25 minutes or until browned and cooked through. Leave scrolls in pan to cool. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before storing.
