Marmite and Cheese Bread

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Sharon123

Adapted from the Fleischmann's site. Here's what they say, "This bread combines two of Britain's most characteristic ingredients, Marmite and sharp cheddar Cheese. Hearty in flavor, this bread is best served toasted accompanying a soup, or in making a sandwich on toast". There is about 90 minutes rising time.

This certainly is a different kind of bread, & I realize it's not something a lot of us here in the ol' US of A can make from our usual pantry stock, unless, of course, you're kinda like me, someone who has a number of the more unusual ingredients more usually found overseas! Well, I do have marmite in my kitchen, & was easily able to pull this very nice tasting bread from my oven! Thanks for sharing it with us! {Made & reviewed for the Special Event ~ Adopt a Veggie Tag!]

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large bowl combine 1/2 cup fall pupose flour, 1/2 cup whole wheat flour salt, and yeast. Heat water until very warm (120º - 130º F) and dissolve Marmite and butter in it. Stir into the dry ingredients.
  2. Add enough of the remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until soft and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. Knead in the cheese.
  3. Cover; let rest on floured surface about 10 minutes.
  4. Punch down dough and roll into a 12 X 7 inch rectangle. Starting from the shorter end, roll up tightly like a jellyroll. Pinch the seams and ends to seal them. Place seam side down in an 8- X 4-inch loaf pan. Cover; let rise in a warm draft-free place until doubled in size, about 90 minutes.
  5. Brush the top lightly with milk. Bake on the middle shelf of a preheated 375º oven for 30-40 minutes or until the bread sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom crust. If the crust is browning too quickly, cover with aluminum foil until finished cooking.
  6. Remove from pan; let cool on wire rack. Enjoy!
