Method

 
Preheat the oven to 200° C. Grease 2 x 12-hole mini muffin tins. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, paprika, oregano and milled pepper. Add the cheese to the dry ingredients and mix through.

In a jug, whisk together all the wet ingredients until well combined. Pour into the flour and fold through lightly until just combined. Don’t over-mix or the scone crumb will be tough.

Spoon a tablespoon amount of batter into each muffin hole. Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden and cooked through.

Heat the Marmite and butter until melted. With the scones still in the tins, brush with the Marmite glaze. Un-mould and serve warm.
