baked camembert with walnut and honey

This baked Camembert with extra virgin olive oil, walnut and honey, is the ultimate comfort food, served best with waxy-fleshed roasted potatoes, seasoned with fresh herbs or just simply, thinly sliced jamón serrano on crackers, dunked into warm melted cheese as it oozes over the sides of the pan.

For me this recipe is extra special, it’s seasoned, well coated in a beautiful dressing with crushed garlic, honey, freshly picked rosemary from the “vega”, brought together with pure Olive Oil. It’s like nothing you’ve ever tasted. The cheese just absorbs the wonderful aromas and makes it, its own pleasurable delight for everyone to enjoy.

Baked Camembert Recipe step by step

  1. Set the oven rack in the centre of the oven and preheat the grill to its highest setting.
  2. Using a sharp knife, cut the white rind from the top of the cheese and lightly score the cheese with the tip of the knife.
  3. Place the cheese in an ovenproof mini non-stick egg fry pan (4.5”), to hold it snugly.
  4. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients, mix well and generously spoon over the top of the cheese.
  5. Place in the oven and cook until the top is bubbling away and golden.
  6. Cook until the cheese is soft to the touch but not collapsing.
  7. Serve immediately with roasted potatoes, vegetable sticks or crackers.
