Cheddar and Marmite Muffins Recipe

Some of you will love this recipe and others will hate it. Cheddar and Marmite Muffins. This recipe has a hearty amount of sharp Cheddar cheese, a hint of Dijon mustard and a swirl of salty tangy Marmite! The Marmite gives these muffins a wonderful savouriness that can’t be found anywhere else. The end texture of these muffins is nice and open like a crumpet which I think you would agree is a massive win! I had these warm from the oven for a lunch with salad, but a word of warning, making only eight of these muffins really won’t last long!

Using an ice scoop helps to transfer the mixture to the cases, making it a less messy procedure! Top with even more Cheddar to get a delicious toasty cheese flavour and wickedly crispy bits. There’s also a hint of Dijon mustard added, you could cut the mustard and Marmite out of the mixture if making for children, as might be a tad intense for them!
