Cheese & Marmite Scones - 4aKid

A true South African scone with a savoury twist!

Prep: 
Cook:  - 

Ingredients

  • 450g¬†plain flour¬†, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 tbsp¬†baking powder
  • 3 tsp¬†Marmite
  • 1¬†large egg
  • about 250ml¬†milk
  • 1 tbsp¬†sunflower oil
  • 140g¬†mature cheddar¬†, grated
  • 100g¬†full-fat cream cheese

Method

STEP 1
  • Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7 and dust a baking tray with a little flour. Mix the flour and baking powder in a large bowl. Put 1 tsp Marmite in a jug, add the egg and make up to 300ml with the milk. Stir in the oil, then beat really well to dissolve the Marmite.
STEP 2
  • Tip 85g of the cheddar into a bowl and mix with the cream cheese and remaining Marmite to make a spread. Toss the rest of the cheese through the flour mixture, then pour in the milk mixture and stir with the blade of a knife until it comes together. (You need to work quickly once you‚Äôve added the liquid, as it activates the baking powder.) Tip onto a lightly floured work surface and gently knead the mix, taking care not to overwork it, as it will make the scones heavy.
STEP 3
  • Press or lightly roll the dough into an oblong about 20 x 25cm. Spread with the Marmite mixture and roll up from the longest side to create a tight, fat cylinder. Pat the ends of the cylinder to straighten them, then slice into 8 pinwheels and put on the baking tray, patting them to make flattish rounds. Bake for 12-15 mins until golden and cooked.
STEP 4
  • Leave for a few mins on the tray to allow the cheese centre to harden a little, then transfer to a wire rack to cool. Eat warm or cold. Best eaten on the day they are made.
