Ingredients

  • 3 cups plain flour (or a mixture of plain and wholemeal)
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2oz butter
  • 2oz cheese
  • 1/2 pt milk (approx)
  • 3 tsp marmite (or to taste)

Method

  • Put the flour, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl or food processor.
  • Add 2 oz of butter. If rubbing in by hand it makes it much easier if you grate the
  • cold butter first. If using a food processor just pulse until the butter is incorporated into the flour.
  • Warm the milk in a saucepan and add the marmite. Stir thoroughly until the marmite has completely dissolved and the milk is now a brownish colour.
  • Add almost all of the milk/marmite mixture to the flour mixture and bring together into a ball, either by hand or food processor. The scone mixture should be a fairly wet dough.
  • Roll out onto a floured work surface until about 1 inch thick, then use cutter to cut into shapes.
  • Use a pastry brush to brush the left over milk/marmite mixture onto the top of the scones and then top with grated cheese.
  • Bake for about 15 mins at gas 7, 200 c, until golden and scrummy looking.
