The catch phrase love it or hate it really doesn’t seem to apply anymore. I’ve given Swiss friends Marmite to try and they are indifferent at first, bordering more on the side of disliking it, then they try it more frequently and the soon addiction emerges.
Everyone loves pancakes, but I am more of a sucker for savoury than sweet. My marmite addiction spread to this new experiment and it was a great success but they are highly Moorish. You can make them up in bulk and freeze them if you’re feeling organised. Cathedral City is readily available here in Switzerland and I’ve always enjoyed it with Marmite on toast but this is a whole new game.
100g plain flour
1 tbsp sunflower oil
50g grated cheddar
Small knob of butter per pancake
Preparation and cooking time 15 mins
Crack in the eggs and whisk together with all the other ingredients until a silky smooth mixture is formed and place to one side, or cover with cling film and leave in the fridge until you’re ready to cook.
Heat a small knob of butter in a frying pan and pour the mixture in, do not allow to burn, the cheese should melt without sticking to the pan.
Flip and cook on the other side until both sides are golden.
Serve with a good spreading of Marmite then fold in half to allow it to melt.
