  • 225 g Self raising flour plus more for dusting
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 50 g Butter
  • 85 g Mature cheddar grated
  • 1 Egg large
  • 4 tbsp Milk
  • 25 g Marmite


  • Pre-heat your oven to 200C Fan/220C/400F/Gas Mark 6, and place a baking tray in the oven
  • Mix the self raising flour and baking powder together a mixing bowl. Add the butter and rub it into the flour with your fingers until it resembles breadcrumbs
  • Add two thirds of the cheddar to the flour and stir in
  • In another bowl whisk together the egg, milk and marmite
  • Reserve ½ tbsp of the marmite mixture for glazing
  • Pour the rest of the marmite mixture into the flour and form a dough. Pat it out onto a clean work surface dusted with flour to about 2cm thick and cut out the scones using a round cutter, size of your choice. Push the cutter straight down and do not twist it
  • Glaze the scones with the reserved marmite mix, and sprinkle the remaining cheddar on them
  • Place the scones onto the heated baking tray and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool, you can eat them warm or cold
