Serving: 10
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes


  • 3 cups self raising flour (400grams) plus extra for flouring board
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Cayenne Pepper (pinch or two, I use two but this is to your taste)
  • ½ cup grated cheese (I used mozzarella but can use other if prefer)
  • ½ cup grated zucchini
  • 3 pieces shortcut bacon chopped (if using other bacon fry off fat and allow to cool before adding)
  • 1 chopped shallot
  • 1 cup milk (little more if needed)
  • Sour cream or butter for serving


  • Sift flour then add rest of ingredients apart from milk and mix using a knife. Slowly add milk until a soft dough is formed still using knife.
  • Place on floured board and knead 3 times only. Using a floured rolling pin roll out to 1 inch thick. Cut into squares.
  • Place in a lined sc with tea towel under lid, I like to leave a small gap between them to allow heat to come through between them to cook more evenly. They will still join but I have found having the gap at the beginning works better for me.
  • Cook for 1 hours on high or until cooked. Serve warm or cold with butter or sour cream or both.

  1. I’ve found these to be very good and very versatile! I often add more grated veggies, more like a cup (today I did carrot, pumpkin and a little capsicum, no zucchini), and substitute half the flour for wholemeal. I also cook them in the oven because I can’t wait for a whole hour!!! Takes about 20 min in moderate oven.
