It might sound like an unusual combination, but this gooey baked Camembert with apricot jam, chopped red chillies and walnuts is absolutely divine.
it’s so simple to make but so good and once you’ve tried it, you will make it again and again.
The recipe comes from my lovely friend Morag. The only change I’ve made to the recipe is add some fresh rosemary.
Obviously, you can scale the ingredients up according to the size of your Camembert.
If you’ve got a crowd coming over, I highly recommend you buy a large one. This is addictive!
How to make a baked Camembert
- Cut your Camembert in half.
- Top the cheese with apricot jam,chopped chillies and walnuts.
- Place the other half of the Camembert on top, sealing the jam inside.
