Marmite (soda) breadsticks

Postby Breadandwine » December 31st, 2009, 9:14 pm

I thought I’d test out the search function on your board, Rio, so I entered the word ‘Bread’ and was quite shocked to find it yielded no results!

To prevent anyone else suffering the same trauma, I thought I’d post a reasonably unique, very simple bread that I haven’t seen anywhere else. It’s a very quick recipe – plenty of time to make it in time for this evening’s nibbles.

Marmite (soda) breadsticks

200g s/raising flour
125ml warm water mixed with 1 dessertspoon Marmite (or more to taste)

Put the oven on to 220C and prepare a baking sheet.

Mix the liquid in with the flour, working quickly, until it forms a ball of dough.

Turn it out onto the table and knead for about 30 seconds – just to mix it into a smooth dough.

Using plenty of flour, roll the dough out quite thinly into a large rectangle.

Using a pizza cutter or a sharp knife, cut the dough into strips about 1 cm wide and place them on the baking sheet.

Bake for about 12-15 minutes until the breadsticks are crisp.

If you're not going to need these for a day or two, dry them out by leaving them in the oven whilst it cools.

Cheers, Paul

These sound really nice Paul - are they a bit like the shop bought twiglets?

Hi Sue

Not really - they don't taste like Marmite as such, they've got a more cheesy flavour.

They still sound good Paul. A cheesy flavour surprises me, bearing in mind there is no cheese and quite a lot of marmite, but they are obviously very savoury. I will give them a try :)

Paul, I really, really want to like Marmite - but I just can't :(

Is there any reason why this recipe couldn't work by subbing pesto sauce for the evil stuff :lol: Basil, garlic & parmesan would make me very happy :D

Hi Alison

The beauty of breadmaking is that bread is so flexible and forgiving. You want to try it with pesto/parmesan? I've never tried it, but I can tell you now, it'll work!

And why not Bovril, Catherine? Give it a go!

I often make bread with curry paste - I used to make it with curry paste and Cheddar cheese, but now I'm vegan I don't.

Having typed that, I've just thought I should try it with vegan cheese - and I will, soon!

Cheers, Paul

Reading the current Marmite thread, I thought it was time to give this thread a bit of a bump - many newcomers won't have seen it, perhaps!

When I have "pangs" of hunger - I eat slices of baguette with marmite and peanut butter.
Now breadsticks with those two, and a spot of hot sauce.......YES! We're talking!

Crunchy or smooth? This is one of my favourite quick snacks when I'm on my own.

Crunchy, mostly!
Sometimes, I sprinkle the whole lot with salt. Other times a splash of my special hot sauce . And sometimes, just on its own!

Hi Pooh,

Yup, that's my poison too.

The difference between us is that instead of baguettes Jacquie makes me some really lovely brown bread with things like sundried tomatoes or fried onion in, and with sunflower seed. That spread with PB - thickly - and a smear of marmite mixed it. Food for the gods. But do you know... there are people - even here on this board who are so misguided as to hate it?

I've never heard of a peanut butter/marmite combination, but I like both, so it could be interesting ;)

My son loves the classic peanut butter/jam combination, but I never really fancied that one!

Hi Sue,

Having said that you have to try it........

When I first came across such a suggestion on another board it was suggested that I do so and I did.. at once...... luckily I had some mouthwash available... :D Poor old Marmite. I've kept it mostly pure since. ;)

Thanks for the warning Luca!

As I said, I like peanut butter and marmite on their own. I also like jam on it's own, but have not tried it with PB, and wouldn't want to.

So I'll give the experiment a miss, I think :lol:
