Marmite Pinwheel Crackers
200g Vegan Margarine
300g Plain Flour
1 pinch Salt
1 tsp Paprika
4 tbsp Marmite
I had a good clear out of our freezer the other day because we’re in the middle of a fridge crisis where my fridge had chosen to freeze and I can’t get the temperature to go down despite my best efforts. Luckily we have a fridge in the garage but going out when you just want milk for a cuppa is highly inconvenient. Hey, I always said I wanted a blast chiller for my cake making I suppose…
Anyway, among the gems in the freezer including a bag of hot cross buns, a slice of cake and lots of small pots of unidentified sauce was a ball of dough. It was the dough to my vegan garlic twists with a few extra additions in. That morning my free sample of Marmite had arrived so I put two and two together and decided to make Marmite pinwheel crackers.
If you don’t like Marmite you’re not going to like these but they do say you wither love it or hate it so if you love it you’ll love the strong flavour of these. I ate nearly a whole batch in one go because they were that good. They’re not the prettiest things but they are pretty tasty!
In a large bowl mix the flour, salt and paprika before rubbing in the butter. Squash into a ball (you may need to add cold water a little at a time), wrap in clingfilm and chill for at least 30 minutes.
On a floured surface roll the dough into a long rectangle about half a centimetre thick. Warm up the marmite in the microwave (10 seconds each time until it becomes slightly runnier) and spread over the dough. Roll from the long side into a large log. Wrap in cling film again and chill for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 175ºc. Slice the log into 1cm thick discs and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until the middle is cooked and golden. Leave to cool before serving.
