Baked Camembert (Chilli Apple & Prosciutto)


SERVES 4 people                             COOKING TIME  40 mins                             DIFFICULTY easy



1 Camembert

4 Tbsp demerara sugar

1 Tsp chilli flakes

1 Sliced apple

Rocket (optional)

A crusty bagette

Greaseproof paper



‘What do you call a bear made of pork and cheese?

-A gammon-bert!’


Preheat the oven to 150 degrees

Mix the sugar and chilli flakes in a bowl, then add 1tsp boiling water and mix thoroughly

With the apple, gently heat the mixture in the pan and simmer (I said gently!) for 2-3 minutes until it begins to thicken

Slice the Camembert horizontally and open up the two halves, like a sandwich

Spread the chilli-sugar mixture and apples onto one half of the camembert and place the other half back on top

Wrap the Camembert in prosciutto, tucking the ends underneath

Cut a length of greaseproof paper as thick as the camembert, wrap all the way around and secure it with string (this is to stop the melting cheese from leaking out)

Place on a tray and bake for 25-30 minutes

Gobble in 5 minutes.
