Calling all Marmite lovers! Cheese and Marmite go together like peaches and cream. Marmite enhances the cheese flavour of these scones and brings a good all round savoury flavour. You're either going to love these scones or hate them. There's only one way to find out! The best way to eat these is to warm them up and add lashings of butter.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220ºc (200ºc fan) Gas mark 7. In a bowl, mix together the flour, cream of tartar, salt, cheddar cheese, Wensleydale cheese and chives.

  2. In a large jug combine the buttermilk, oil, egg and marmite. Once this is done, pour it into the flour mixture and then use the water to bind it to a soft dough.

  3. Roll out until 2 ½ cm thick (1 inch) and then cut into rounds using a 6cm cutter.  Place these onto a baking tray which you've lined with parchment and sprinkle the remaining 25g of cheese on top. Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden in colour.
