Baked “Black-Brie” (and toast)

So LLK has had a long and restful siesta, thank you to all who have been keeping in touch with me via e-mail and posts online, asking for recipes and cooking tips.

So to kick things off again I thought I would start with a few appetisers: baked brie with a warm blackberry sauce. The blackberries have a sharp tart flavour which is offset by the honey just a little.


This would make an amazing starter, breakfast, or even BBQ! Now I come to think of it, if you simply wrapped the brie in foil and baked it on the BBQ grill for a few minutes the cheese would capture all the flavours from the BBQ…ok this has me thinking.

It literally takes no more than 10 minutes to make, simple things…enjoy!

1 whole Camembert

1 cup fresh blackberries

1 tbsp water

1 tbsp honey (to taste)

1/2 tsp cornstarch

Sliced sour dough bread (toasted)


Pre-heat the oven to 250C

Remove all packaging from the Camembert, finely slice the top off to expose some of the cheese underneath before placing on a oven tray.

Bake in oven for 10 minutes, keep checking to it at intervals.

While its baking place half the blackberries in a saucepan with the water and honey. Allow the mixture to boil and the fruit to disintegrate. Season or sweeten to taste.

Stir in the cornstarch (dissolved in a little water)

Allow the mixture to cool slightly before pouring through a sieve to remove the seeds. Then add the remaining blackberries to the sauce and set aside.

Remove the cheese from the oven and pour the blackberries over the top. Serve with sourdough bread and fresh basil leaves if you wish!
