  • for the tin butter
  • 2 tbsp Marmite
  • 250ml milk
  • 200g gruyère, grated, plus extra
  • 6 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 140g self-raising flour
  • 70g wholemeal flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 egg


  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6 and butter 10 holes of 1 large or 2 smaller muffin tins. Warm the Marmite and milk in a saucepan, whisking until the Marmite has totally melted. Take off the heat and leave to cool for a couple of minutes.

  • STEP 2

    Mix the cheese, spring onions, flours and bicarb in a big bowl.

  • STEP 3

    Whisk the egg into the Marmite-milk mixture, then pour over the dry ingredients and fold together briefly, being careful not to over-mix. Divide between the muffin holes so all are 3/4 full, sprinkle with more cheese then bake for 12-15 minutes. These are great eaten warm, or split and toast day-old ones under a hot grill and eat with more butter and Marmite.
