Adapting a classic recipe to make super tasty, moist, and moreish Marmite Cheese scones! even haters will love these!
450g Self Raising Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
Pinch of Sea Salt
110g British Butter (Salted)
200g Vintage Cheddar Cheese
120ml Milk (plus extra for glazing)
1 tbs Marmite (no imitations)
20g Grated Cheese to top
Preheat the oven to 200C (190C for fan ovens). In a medium-large bowl sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder.
Use a cheese grater to grate the butter, then place in the bowl and mix with your fingertips to make breadcrumbs. Sprinkle the grated cheese into the breadcrumb mixture and mix with a wooden spoon (so you don't melt the cheese with your hands).
Make a well in the centre of the mixture and pour in enough milk to give a fairly soft but firm dough. Do not pour in all the milk at once as you may not need it all to get the right consistency. Dont worry if its a bit sticky at this point
Lightly flour a surface and roll out the dough to approximately 2cm thick. Cut out the scones with a medium cutter and then place on a greased and lined oven tray. Glaze the tops with the extra milk and sprinkle a little cheese on the top of each scone before putting in the oven. You could even drizzle a bit of Marmite over them too!
Bake in the oven for around 15 mins (check after 10 mins, just in case)
