As we enter our fourth week of Marmageddon, we'll be delving into the world of baking. Most people enjoy their Marmite on some toast with butter, so we were confident that adding the salty spread to some cheddar-studded scones would hit the spot. These small cakes are simple and deeply savory, begging to be slathered in even more Marmite and butter.

Although this is the most Marmite we've used during our month-long salute to the British spread, Marmite and cheddar make excellent bed-fellows and these scones aren't overpowering by any means. If you happen to be making these in the morning, then I suggest splitting one open and filling it with some bacon and a fried egg for an over-the-top, better-than-you-can-imagine breakfast sandwich.
