Marmite / Vegemite Brownie Recipe – Would You Eat It? || Glen & Friends Cooking

October 31, 2019 13 By William Morgan


welcome friends welcome back to the
kitchen today we’re gonna do a brownie
but I’m gonna put a twist on the brownie
just a little bit and see if something
works out if you’ve been hanging around
here for a while you know that I love to
put Marmite in soups and stews and slow
braises anything with beef Marmite is
amazing in it I came across an article
in an Australian food magazine where
they put Vegemite in brownies and I
thought hmm I can’t get fed your might
we’re in a Marmite country I’m gonna put
Marmite in brownies and see what happens
because I imagine that it just ramps up
that chocolate flavor brings everything
to the forefront because that’s what it
does in a beef stew so I ran out of
Marmite last week in the beef and
biscuits video so I note this morning to
get a new jar and I can only find a
small jar kind of amazing that it
catches on and so many people use it so
chocolate cocoa and butter and I’m gonna
melt this I’m gonna melt this in a
microwave I am now firmly in chocolate
microwave melting camp I used to do it
in a pot in a double boiler or memory
now I just stick it in the microwave 30
seconds give it a stir 30 more seconds
and it’s done so I’m going to take this
into the other kitchen and do that
because I don’t have a microwave out
here on set I’ll be right back okay next
we’ll deal with the eggs I need two eggs
and I’m just gonna whip that up with
some sugar and vanilla and I’m gonna add
the Marmite into this mixture as well so
two eggs sugar a little bit of vanilla
oh maybe a lot of vanilla and we’ll give
that a whisk just to get it going
okay I think we’re ready for the Mar –
so let’s get spoonful of that so I’m
just gonna do a really good scoop you
know I saw the article but then I didn’t
read it so I don’t know how much they
used I’m gonna say probably one to two
tablespoons and we’ll see what happens
so whisk that in okay looking good now
in this bowl I have flour and I’m gonna
add some salt and baking powder just a
tiny little bit of baking powder because
you don’t really want too much rise in
your brownies they are meant to be sort
of fudgy so I’m just gonna mix that in
and you’ll have to mix it to well just
you know stir it together now it’s time
to combine everything so and get rid of
the whisk and I’m gonna stir the
chocolate into the egg mixture now the
chocolates been sitting out for a little
while so it has mostly cooled in it goes
okay and we just stir that in and it
mixes in really nicely pretty easy you
could use the whisk if you wanted to use
the whisk but it’s not necessary because
we’re already done now the flour goes in
and the flour can just go in in one big
dump you don’t need to put it in a
little bit at a time because it really
isn’t much flour in this recipe
looks great now I have an 8×8 cake tin
with a parchment sling in it just so
that we can pull it out easily and I’ll
just transfer the brownie batter into
this I think it probably could use a
nine by nine and I know that a lot of
people use a brownie pan which is almost
like a baking sheet with a little extra
lip on it kind of like a jelly roll pan
if you want to bake it in that go right
ahead brownies are really good in those
makes them really fudgy okay just smooth
it into the corners a little bit
and into the oven hmm I think this is
gonna be good
man I think this is gonna be really good
all right Glenn so I see you’ve made
more brownies yes how on earth did you
find a brand new recipe that has you’re
right there’s probably butter chocolate
there’s probably 15 or so brownie
recipes on our channel so I’ll link to
that playlist this one is different I’m
not gonna tell you what although one of
my favorites has has beer in it but yeah
hold the black and tan brownie anyway
that has a quirky tang mm-hmm yeah
although I’m not sure I mean I’m not
saying it’s a bad thing I’m just you
said it’s something I need to guess I’m
trying to guess it’s gonna tank flavor
to it so it’s it’s really earthy mm-hmm
like the chocolate flavor is really like
earthy yeah it’s not but there’s almost
like a like an acidic Tang and on the on
the end did you not use like a more
natural chocolate or more it’s weird I’m
looking for not heavily sugared
chocolate uh interesting cuz I would
have thought it would have brought the
chocolate out more no it’s kind of toned
it down mm-hmm and made it darker mmm
does that make sense like a darker
chocolate I think you have to actually
change the name okay and that brownie
says when someone says brownie they
expect a certain chocolaty a brightness
and a seed and oh yeah this is still
sweet but then the Marmite adds a really
rich texture to it like it’s almost like
a cheesecake flavor
yes yeah that’s we get there we got
there at the time okay so now here’s the
thing and I know that you this is one of
the most difficult food things to wrap
your head around you don’t taste the
Marmite
and people will say why would I add
something if I can’t taste it because
well I think it tastes horrible and I
wouldn’t influence this the flavor
though it is one of those things that
you add that modifies the other flavors
yeah so it’s it is a flavor modifier
flavor enhancer that you don’t actually
taste and you would know if it’s not
there but you also know that there’s
something there but you don’t know what
it is
mm-hmm so I think that is great that
it’s not a child’s brownie no this is
not a I’m at a happy party child party
brownie oh no no this is a glass of red
wine I was just gonna say that post
titled
meal with you yeah a glass of red wine
it would probably even compliment cheese
yeah not like a chattering thing but
something with a lighter flavor yeah
maybe even a soft cheese you could call
it I think you could have a lot of fun
with it like a double cream or a triple
cream Brie yeah with it that would be
kind of okay so it’s I don’t want to say
that it’s weird but it’s it’s not a
brownie as you would expect a brownie to
be it is much more and I hate this word
but it’s decadent it really is sort of
that it does have a very rich flavor
yeah but it’s not super chocolaty that’s
the bit that’s gonna throw people off I
think even more than anything else and
it’s not overpowering or cloyingly sweet
or it’s just I don’t know it’s the unlit
brownie it’s it’s just yeah the
unbranded chocolate brownie I don’t know
so I’m really happy with that I’m happy
that we made it I don’t know if it is
something that I would when I’m sitting
down at 7:30 at night and say oh let’s
make some brownies that’s not gonna be
the recipe might not be the recipe but
if I was having a dinner party with a
bunch of friends over that would end up
at the end as something that we would
have with a dessert wine like a nice
wine you’d enjoy yeah I know I think
that would go really well the nice wine
because the acid and the sweetness from
the iced wine would cut that all
together
oK we’ve got a whole dessert platter
holy yeah so if you’re a little bit
adventurous give it a try and you know
you can get just a tiny little bottle of
Marmite and I used probably half of that
bottle
I’m actually surprised you bought such a
tiny bottle usually you buy the giant
wine they didn’t have them I know if I
can be hard to find some days yeah so
thanks for stopping by give this a try
see you again soon
you
