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


  • 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.
