My dad introduced me to Marmite when I was growing up and I’ve loved it ever since. So what better way to say Happy Birthday to my dad than to make him these yummy Cheese & Marmite Scones! It’s a rare Marmite lover that isn’t aware of the fantastic flavour combination that is created when Marmite and cheese mix together. It’s one of my favourite things and if you love Marmite and have never had it with cheese… well get in the kitchen right now and discover how amazing it is!! Or you could read on and learn how to make these Cheese & Marmite Scones.
I started by sieving self raising flour together with baking powder in a mixing bowl. I added butter and rubbed it into the flour until it resembled breadcrumbs.
Then I grated mature cheddar and added half to the flour and stirred in.
In another bowl I whisked together egg, milk and marmite.
I poured the wet marmite mixture into the flour and formed a dough. I patted it out to about 2cm thick and cut out the scones. Depending on how big a cutter you use, you will get a different amount of scones. I used a 3 inch one and got 5 scones.
I laid the scones onto a baking tray, glazed with a little milk and sprinkled on the remaning cheddar.
They baked on 160C Fan/180C/350F/Gas Mark 4 for about 20 mins until golden brown.
The Cheese & Marmite Scones came out great, the marmite flavour really comes through and the cheese on top is just yum! My dad text me a couple of days after I gave him the Cheese & Marmite Scones to say they were very nice and there were only two left. Result! Looks like I will be passing this recipe onto my stepmum very soon. I’ll also be making these again for myself as they are really tasty.
