- 250g plain flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 200g mature cheddar cheese, grated
- 4 free-range eggs
- 125ml olive oil
- 100ml milk
- 1 tablespoon plain yoghurt
- 1 (large) tsp Marmite
- Large pinch of salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 20g butter, melted
- 2 tsp Marmite
- Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4 and lightly grease a 20cm round cake tin. (A silicon one works well for this).
- Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl, add 150g of the cheese and stir to combine. (Save the rest of the cheese for the top later).
- In a separate bowl whisk the eggs until very frothy and gradually add the olive oil, milk, yoghurt, and Marmite, whisking well. Season with the salt and black pepper, if you like.
- Add the egg to the flour mixture in batches, stirring to combine.
- Scoop into the cake tin and smooth out evenly, the sprinkle the top with the rest of the grated cheese.
- Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the cheese is golden and the cake feels firm.
- Cool in the tin for a few minutes.
- Melt the butter and Marmite together in a small saucepan.
- Whilst the cake is still warm, poke holes in the top with a skewer and drizzle over the melted butter-Marmite mixture.
- Serve with LARGE SLICES OF CHEDDAR and revel in glorious Marmiteyness…
