Prep time:

Cook time:

Serves: 3



  • 1 baguette

  • 1 non-pasteurised round of camembert cheese (in a wooden box, preferably creamy rather than sharp)


  1. Remove inner wrapper from cheese, replace in box and put in oven at 180-200C for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Remove lid after 10 minutes and keep checking until cheese looks quite fluid inside (too much and it will drip out of the bottom but still be edible.)
  3. Remove from oven and cut triangle-shaped section out of top.
  4. Dip small bits of baguette in to eat and share.

Handy Hint

With unpasteurised cheese, works as a starter for grown-ups with a nice bottle of red.

Eat it at the table - it will make little hands very sticky indeed. We have it as a special treat every couple of weeks and it does not need anything else - you may prefer to wreck it by using pasturised cheese and dipping bits of carrot instead.

Cooked like this the cheese is usually delightfully runny but so not super-hot that a three year old can't blow on it.
