The best way to eat these scones is to have them warm with lashings of butter. Delicious!
- Heat oven to 220°C/fan 200°C/gas mark 7. Mix the flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl with the salt. Add the butter and rub with your fingertips until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs (or use a food processor). Stir in 75g of the cheese and make a well in the centre.
- Whisk the egg, marmite and milk together and pour into the well and bring the mixture together to make a soft, but not sticky dough. Add a little more milk if the dough is too dry.
- Turn onto a floured surface, then roll out to about 2cm thick. Stamp out 4 scones using a round cutter, then gather the trimmings and repeat until all the dough has been used. Put on a baking sheet, brush with milk and scatter over the remaining 50g of cheese. Bake for 10-12 mins until golden. Cool on a wire rack.
- Serve with lashings of butter, enjoy!
Surely 1 and a half TEASPOONS of marmite?
It is definitely 1 1/2 tablespoons, I have tried it with less and the of marmite is lost. I hope you enjoy the recipe.
I used Aldi version of Marmite. It’s better for cooking as it’s runnier. Tastes the same.
Just made these on the spur of the moment. Absolutely delicious 😋
I am so pleased you enjoyed them. Thank you very much for feedback 😊
I made these on Monday evening, and they now my ‘working from home’ brunch this week. Delicious! 🙂 Marmite is everywhere at the minute! I’m enjoying these scones as much as the M+S marmite hot x buns! #lockdownbrunch. Missing visiting my extended family in Whitley Bay!!
Hi Sheralyn, I am so pleased that you have enjoyed the recipe – I think I am going to have to try the M&S Marmite Hot Cross Buns. Hopefully it won’t be long until you can get back to Whitley Bay. Take care:)
I’ve made these three times now and I love them. Thanks for this recipe.
My little tip – put the jar of Marmite (or own brand yeast extract – that’s what I use) into a bowl of hot water for a few minutes. It makes it more runny and therefore easier to pour into your measuring spoon.
I’m going to make these later on this morning. I am quite tempted to play around with the cheese and maybe swap some of the cheddar for Stilton or feta.
I just knocked these up in no time, they are absolutely delicious and gone down an absolute treat! I might even add more marmite next time!
I am so pleased you enjoyed the recipe. 😀

Just was introduced to marmite by my English neighbor so going to surprise her & make these soon! Finally found marmite in the baking aisle.
