Even though it’s often said about Marmite,  “you either love it, or hate it” – these savoury biscuits may just convert the naysayers.  They can only be described as buttery, cheesy, herby and yangy. Now, if none of these flavours take your fancy, read no more and come back tomorrow!

Everybody else, I urge you to give this recipe a try. Ok, so they are not exactly the healthiest and full of our lovely friend “the carbohydrate”. However,  they are easy to make and something to do with the kids on a rainy day with little stress or mess. 

Makes 30 average size biscuits 


1 tablespoon fresh (or frozen) chopped thyme – not the dry stuff

2 tablespoons of Marmite 

200g of grated cheddar

2 eggs

225g butter (room temperature)

375g plain flour 

Pinch of salt 

Preheat your oven to 190 degrees C

Place all ingredients into a stand mixer and beat until you have a sticky dough.

If you are doing this by hand mix the flour and butter together until they are combined 

Then add the rest of the ingredients – mix until you have a lovely yellow, sticky dough.

Flour a worktop and roll the dough out to  1cm thick.

Use any shape cutter or slice into strips

Then place on baking parchment on a tray.

Bake for 10-15 mins until a golden brown colour.

They are amazing eaten slightly warm.
