Cheese and Marmite soda bread

My cheese and Marmite soda bread is quick to make, raised by bicarbonate of soda rather than yeast, so it can be on your dinner table in less than an hour. It is delicious eaten warm from the oven. It stales quite quickly as it is more of a cake than a bread but it tastes great toasted for a few days. You can get more recipes for scones and soda bread in my online course that is available to my Bread Made Easy members.

Ingredients for Cheese and Marmite soda bread

300g white plain flour (I used spelt)
150g wholemeal flour
50g cheddar cheese
5g fine sea salt
5g bicarbonate of soda
100g yoghurt
180-200g milk
2 teaspoon Marmite mixed with 50g hot water


Line a baking tray with baking parchment and sprinkle with flour. Preheat the oven to 200C, 390F, gas mark 6.

Place the flours, the cheese, the salt and bicarbonate of soda in a large bowl. Mix the marmite water, milk and yoghurt in a jug. Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and mix together until just mixed. Form into a ball. 

Place on the lined baking tray (you can grate more cheese over if you like) and bake for 30-45 minutes until fully baked. Eat warm spread with plenty of butter. This bread is great with soup.
