My partner and his nan love Marmite. And in the 2 and a half years we’ve been together, I’ve lost count of the times they’ve mentioned this Marmite bread they used to get from a bakery. Apparently the baker said there wasn’t enough need to make them, much to my nan-in-law’s disgust! So after asking my partner what this bread was like, I thought I’d give it a go! I was pleased with how it turned out but I think it’ll need some tweaking to make it perfect!
You will need…
Bread mix (you are welcome to make your own bread from scratch but I don’t have the patience!)
Make up the bread using the instructions on the packet. Just before you put it in the bread tin, roll it out. You want a rough rectangle so it’ll make a decent roll.
Spread the Marmite over the dough. It’s entirely up to you how much you put on, depending on your personal taste. Spread it as far out as you can, I’ve found this makes a better swirl. Roll the dough up into a Swiss roll and place in the bread tin.
Cover with a damp tea towel and leave it in a warm place to rise. Bake to the packet instructions. Hopefully it’ll look like this..
That’s a terrible picture, I do apologise!
If you don’t like Marmite, you can sub it for something else. I made chocolate spread and lemon curd bread yesterday..they turned out a lot better..
This is such a versatile idea, you can fill the bread with whatever filling you like! I’m thinking of trying peanut/almond butter next! I’ll let you now how it turns out 🙂
