How To Make Currants Roll And Cookbook Giveaway.

Ask any Trinbagonian what’s their favorite dessert/snack and I can guarantee it would be almost impossible to find someone who would not say currants roll. A lovely flaky dough filled with cinnamon, brown sugar and currants.. layers and layers of island delight. There are some who like it somewhat wet or moist and compact and then there are those of us who look for that balance of perfect pasty exterior and a filling you’re only too excited to bite into. Before I drool on my keyboard, lets get to the recipe…


You’ll Need…

3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup butter  (cold, in cubes)
1/2 cup veg shortening (cold, in cubes)
¼ teaspoon  salt
1 cup or more ice cold water

Filling mixture:

1 1/2 cups currants
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon  cinnamon

 

1/2 cup melted butter
1 egg + 1 tablespoon milk

* Sugar for sprinkling (optional)

Notes. The key to flaky pasty crust is to use cold ingredients (water/butter) and don’t overwork with your hands as the natural heat can warm things up quickly.

Let’s start off by making the dough for the pastry, since we’ve got to give it time to chill in the fridge for at least 1/2 an hour (2hrs is best). Cut the chilled butter and shortening (place in the freezer for about 25 minutes if you want), then sift the flour into a food processor, add the salt  and cubed butter and vegetable shortening. Remember it’s important to use ice cold water.  Before adding any water, give the mixture a few pulses in the food processor.. until you have the texture of little peas. Now start adding the water, about 3/4 cup to start and work it until you have a dough which will start to take shape. Add more water was needed. (it will look crumbly)

Empty the now semi-formed dough onto a flour-dusted surface and (work quickly) shape into a smooth dough ball. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge to chill for about 2 hours.

As the dough chills in the fridge you can make the mixture for the filling. Very simple – in a large bowl, place the cinnamon, currants and brown sugar and give everything a good mix. If you want to be a bit creative you can certainly add some raisins and a drop of vanilla.. but remember that the vanilla is not a traditional ingredient.

It’s now time to put things together and get these tasty treats in the oven. Cut the main dough ball into 2 pieces, then roll out the first one on a flour dusted surface. Be sure to dust your hands and rolling pin with flour as well. This dough can be a bit sticky. Roll until you have a thin (less than 1/2 centimeter) rectangle shape. Now brush the surface with 1/2 of the melted butter.

It’s now time to add the lovely stuffing and roll into shape. Pour 1/2 of the currant mixture onto the flattened dough, but leave about 2.5 centimeters as a border without any. Try to make sure it’s spread evenly. Now as if rolling a fat cigar (very tight) roll into a cylindrical shape. Remember the tighter you can roll this, the more lovely layers the finished currants roll will have. Be sure to pinch the ends to create a seal.

Repeat with the next piece of dough and remaining currant mixture. And set onto a parchment line baking sheet.

Beat the egg and milk and brush the surface of each roll to give it a lovely golden color when it’s done in the oven. The final step (optional) is to sprinkle with some granulated sugar before placing into a  350 degree oven for about 50 minutes (middle rack). You’re looking for a lovely golden color.

The scent coming out of your oven will have you impatient (can you say eager anticipation?)and your children will be pacing and finding every excuse in the book to see what’s going on in the kitchen.

Allow to cool before slicing (the traditional way is to slice on an angle) so it has enough time to set and not fall apart especially if you’re using a blunt knife (I used a serrated blade). BTW you can brush with melted butter and sprinkle more sugar immediately after it comes out of the oven for that extra touch.

Yes, it’s that time again. I’ve got a wicked cookbook “Italian Kitchen – Traditional and contemporary recipes for perfect Italian cuisine” to give away to one lucky reader and I’m hoping it’s you.

    To much water! Shouldn’t it be a stiff dough? I put like half the water but I remember my mom making it and it was a really stiff dough to roll out, did I do something wrong? Anyways I’m going to leave it in the fridge til tomorrow and then complete it and see where I went wrong.

    You make it look so easy ….. she did it in sooooooooo many steps.
    Thank you.

    Hello Chris,
    My first try was fabulous. I hope to make this for a bike sale. Thanks much. Off course I have a question. Is it ok to make and refrigerate the dough for more than two days ?

  7. May 20, 2016 / 7:38 am

    Chris, I have enjoyed your videos for years. I am not a fan of currant rolls but love the coconut version. However,I can’t find a recipe anywhere for the filling. Would you please offer a recipe for the coconut filling version. Thanks.

    Chris, thank you so much for the Currants Roll recipe; I made it and I must say that it was wonderful! Keep the recipes coming.
    But I’ll like to mention something I heard you said on your Currants Roll video about people in the UK called All Purpose flour “Self Rising”. All Purpose flour whether in the UK, US or in Canada, it is called All Purpose flour “NOT Self Rising”.
    Self Rising flour is NOT just All Purpose flour BUT, All Purpose flour mixed WITH baking powder which is a rising agent, “hence the name self-rising”. All Purpose flour DOES NOT have any baking powder in it or any other rising agent.
    I know this because I’ve been to the UK and the US etc and everywhere I went I’ve done some shopping, cooking and baking. In Canada we do have both flours; Self Rising and All Purpose. I’ve never bought Self Rising flour because I’ve always mixed my own. I hope that you won’t mind me letting you know the difference.
    Thank you Chris and God bless!

    Love, love your recipes and the way that you present them! Also, thanks for all the step by step instructions. I finally made this recipe and it came out okay if you don’t want it fairly sweet. I made a few changes for next time and they are: increase sugar to 1/2 cup, increase currants to 2 cups so that I’ll have enough to spread close to the edges. I’ll leave a 1/2 inch border since I wasted too much pastry edges with no filling. Thanks again, Chris!

    I was suffering the web for some Bahamian recipes for my children to get the experience I had growing up in the Bahamas. Found some but wanted more. So I search for Caribbean recipes and came up to your site. Thank you for this site. I love your voice. It reminds me of back home (Bahamas). There are so many recipes I will try out. At first I thought it would be hard but you make it so easy. Love the videos on how to make some recipes. Please keep it up. Living in Long Island, New York (Suffolk County) there are no Caribbean Restaurants. I too went to Culinary School but did nothing with my degree. I make fabulous meals, cakes, cookies and parties for my children, family,friends and some catering. Well I guess it is not really going to waste. Once again thank you. I can’t wait till I do the currants roll, my favorite. Now I got to find the currents. Ha,Ha, Ha, Ha.

    I love your recipes!!!!! When I was young my grandpa use to seat me on the counter and I would sit and watch him create the most delicious meals. My other grandpa on my father side did the same thing only he would bake. And the funniest thing was either were aware that the other was doing so. Well as a result I developed a passion for cooking (IT'S N MY BLOOD). I enjoy every opportunity you take out of your day to bring these yummy creations. I do not have a lot of money to go out and buy some of those ingredients that are require with other recipes. I have to shop on a monthly budget, but I can afford to bring these tasty creations to my table and my family loves them. I love that my kitchen smells like I can really throw down…lol!!! THANKS and I PRAY YOU HAVE ALL THE BLESSINGS YOUR HEART DESIRES!!!

    Hi Chris,

    Loved your coconut, curry, pumpkin soup – fantastic!

    I tried a twist on it and used butternut squash (3-1/2 cups), one medium sized turnip (1/2 to 3/4 cup) and of course my favorite… a dash – 1/2 tablespoon of bajan pepper sauce. Doubled on the coriander (1/2 tsp) and garlic (2 cloves), ginger (1 tsp) and a pinch more curry (1-1/4 tbls). Used 1-1/4 cups coconut milk. Did not use the coconut oil. Was fantastic if I must say so myself. Had my father-in-law asking for the recipe. The turnip gave it a lovely mild tang!

    Give it a twirl sometime!

    Keep up the great work!

    As an upcoming chef, I find your website very intriguing!!! I am on a mission to try all of your recipes as i love their uniqueness with the touch of Caribbean flavour… 🙂 Your recipes are really awesome. My favourites are the chicken strips, the jerked chicken wraps and even though i love all your shrimp recipes, the best combination for me is the shrimp, avocado and mango salad….lovely! Keep on doing what you are doing Chris, making our tummies happy!!!! 🙂

    Chris, growing up in Trinidad with my parents and Mama, my grandmother close by, I was taught to cook almost everything or so I thought but since logging in to Caribbean Cookbook I realize I now am a cook. You make thes recipes so easily to follow. This is not to say I wasn't well taught

I like to cook and current rolls is one of my favourite.

    Hi Chris,
    Since my birthday is in May and I love Italian food, I am hoping that this wonderful book could be mine. I love you currant roll recipe though. I always want to try it but I hate doing the pastry. The one I was taught is too time consuming where you have to keep putting in back in the fridge and rolling it over again. This seems simple enough

    May your Caribbean Pot e-mails never stop coming.. You have caused me to anxiously go to the grocery many a time to get the odd ingredient or two that I don't have in my kitchen, just to savor another one of your mouth-watering recipes.
    Thanks,

    I found your web-site not too long ago while looking for an explanation of "green seasoning". I don't know why my german grandmother never told me about it!!

    I've enjoyed checking out your website and your sense of spirit.

    But I do have a couple questions….

    Is the Italian Cookbook also your? I didn't notice an author.

    Are currants native to the Carribean? Here in the north they ripen in early July.

    Are red or black currants typically used?

    Thanks much!

    Hi Chris: Your currants roll looked inviting (as all your recipes I recieve). Anyway, I make mine a bit different. For starters I do not use any sugar, instead, I increase the currants. Also, after my first rolling of the dough and applying the butter/crisco; I fold the dough, taking one end and lapping the other end on top. Then take the other two ends and lap on each other(like a square paratha loi). That is now wraped in saran wrap and sits in the fridge for about an hour or two. Then that is now rolled, brushed again with butter and springle with currants and cinnamon. Then into the oven. For me this is plenty sweet and tasty. Have a nice day Chris and keep the recipes coming. Whether I use them or not I do enjoy reading them. They refresh my memory.

    Hi Chris
    It is so good to hear from you and i do have to say your idea of currants rolls is a good idea, i have not made it in LAST 18mts as i used to make it for my son, but since his death i have not had the drive to do such things like that. But i will start making it again and i will use your recipe, the oe i used is a bit different, it looks great. And by the way i made your tamarind bbque sauce and it came out so good that i will always be making my own sauces from now.. Looking foward to new trini recipes in the future.
