To suggest that marmite be used for anything other than a practical joke is inhumane.

Thank you for the above recipe. However I am a little bemused, most recipes I read have exact quantities stated. Firstly I did not know how much bread to use (I assumed the picture was for display purposes only), then I was a little confused with the Marmite / Butter mix. So I ran with 1 cup of butter to 2 cups of Marmite. I note also there are 14 types of Marmite on the market and wonder if clarification could be provided on which one to use. Unfortunately this recipe ended up a soggy mess.

Being the busy mum of 15 kids that I am, I decided that I was going to batch cook this recipe and freeze for the weeks ahead. I am very pleased that we have private dental care as I now have many kids with broken teeth. PLEASE PLEASE do not batch cook and freeze. Frozen toast with marmite and teeth DO NOT MIX. Such a shame, this recipe would have got 5 stars. :(

This morning I thought I'd give this 'twist on a timeless classic' a go, and surprise my wife with breakfast in bed. I'd got halfway through the butter-spreading part of the recipe when it hit me and I remembered that my wife had left me just a week ago - and taken the marmite with her! I was then halfway through the sobbing and feeling sorry for myself part of marital breakdown when it hit me and I remembered that I was sleeping with my neighbour, the toast was actually for her, and that she hates marmite! Thanks Benno, you really sorted my life out. x

Great sounding dish, going to rustle it up for the hubby this Friday, any particular wine you would recommend with this culinary delight?

Having decided to close my cookery school due to lack of decent recipes to teach, this one has really perked my business up and I have a queue of eager students signed up for my new classes. Thank you !!

This recipe sounds like a winner, I certainly can't wait for electric toasters to become available in New Zealand. It will certainly give a purpose to the thousands of Marmite Farms currently dotting the country side, waiting for a the great leap forward from the current use of warm bread ( This is achieved by sticking pieces of fresh bread up your jumper and going for a short jog, the result warm although some what damp bread ). Cant wait !

You know what, I'm done with this site and its ostentatious recipes. If you have to traipse across half the upper-middle class farm shops of the Home Counties just to find a jar of something that you'll never be able to use in any other recipe, it is obviously not for the common man. Nigella might have Marmite in her store cupboard, right next to her gold-flecked moon truffles, but for those of us on a budget, it's a luxury we can't afford. Don't even get me started on the bourgeois bay leaf. I wouldn't even know how to eat it. It's one thing feeling ashamed in a fancy restaurant, but to be humiliated in my own home...

Are the instructions for use inland or at the coast? The results weren't what I expected and I wondered if this was because of bad altitude
