for all you marmite lovers


Now here’s a delicious breakfast or afternoon treat! Best served warm, when I made them I added extra cheese and extra marmite to make them even tastier!

For the ingredients…

140g self-raising flour
140g wholemeal flour
1 tsp baking powder
50g cold butter, cut into small cubes
85g mature cheddar, grated
1 egg
1 tbsp Marmite
2 tbsp Greek or natural yogurt
3 tbsp milk, plus extra to glaze


To make:

Heat oven to 190 degrees. Mix the flours and baking powder in a mixing bowl with a pinch of salt. Add the butter and rub with your fingertips until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in ½ of the cheese and make a well in the centre.

Whisk the remaining ingredients together and pour into the well. Bring the mixture together to make a soft, but not sticky dough. Add a little more milk if the dough is too dry.

Roll out to about 2cm thick on a floured surface. Stamp out the scones using a round cutter. Put on a baking sheet, brush with milk and scatter over remaining cheese. Bake for 10-12 mins until golden. Cool on a wire rack.
