Marmite scones

If you’re a Marmite or Vegemite fan, these cheesy snack balls are coming right at you! Rather small yes, but they pack a full scale flavour punch. If Marmite and cheese sandwiches were a regular in your lunch box, you’ll know all about this happy union. Made with a handful of pantry cupboard staples, these Marmite cheese scones are a one-bowl mix and bake batter. You’re only 15 minutes away from sheer savoury bliss. Make them this weekend and see how fast they go!

This recipe was developed for Food 24 so you can hustle over there for this bankable recipe. Make South Africa’s favourite savoury snack-scone this weekend and see how fast 2 dozen cheese balls disappear.

  • Hi Di. Tippy put my name down for your Thursday class but I haven’t paid…I know the class is very full but is there room for me to still come or not?

  • I have your name on the list Carey. Looking forward to cooking with you then. It’s going to be Yummo!

  • They say you either love it or hate it (marmite) and I definitely fall into the former category. I am not sure I would be very good at sharing these 😉

    So true. I love the salty umami flavour. It reminds me so much of my childhood lunchbox sandwiches!

    Hello Di
    We love marmite too. Thank you for another amazing recipe. However, a question the recipe says
    3/4 salt
    1/4 smoked paprika or cayenne pepper
    no measurement given. Is it supposed to be teaspoon or tablespoon?
    Thank you.

    Hi Marie. Apologies. That would be teaspoon. Enjoy!

  • Is it just me or does this link not work?

  • Hi Trish. It seems the original link was redirected. I’ve updated it now. Please let me know if you come right.
