Love it or hate it? Paul A. Young’s Marmite Brownie

Paul A Young Marmite brownie

‘Love it, hate it, just don’t forget it’, implores the new Marmite ad. And Paul A Young’s taken the aide memoir as a timely reminder to create something no-one’s likely to forget in a hurry – the Marmite Brownie.

Now, Paul’s brownies are ordinarily pretty easy to love. But shot through with rivulets of Marmite, the sticky, salty-bitter substance with that peculiar and particular viscosity, it’s a slightly more challenging paramour.

Lucky, then, that I like a challenge, and I am very, very partial to my mate Marmite. The dense, intense chocolate flavour of Paul’s brownie has a meaty, almost purple-fruity savour which allows one to eat the whole hefty slab in one sitting, that salty edge precluding saccharine saturation. Of course, ‘one’ would never be so greedy. Heavens, no.
