ingredients
  • Brie 1 round
  • Some good-quality raspberry conserve
  • A handful of chopped walnuts
  • Brown sugar 2 tbs (optional)

Baked brie is insanely easy to make, and tastes fabulous! All you need is a round of brie, some raspberry conserve, and a handful of walnuts with a little brown sugar.

You can have this baked brie on the table with crackers or breadsticks in less than 20 minutes, which makes it ideal as lunch when friends pop round unexpectedly. You can make this as a party dish, or any other sharing-type treat.

Brie goes beautifully with raspberry and walnuts, but it also pairs with cranberry and bacon, and a few other combos. Don’t be afraid to experiment!

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 350F/160C fan/gas mark 4. Line a cookie sheet or baking tray with baking parchment.

If you like the rind, leave it on the brie. Personally, I like the taste of the rind, but if you don’t like it, take the rind off the sides of the brie and slice off the top rind.

Spread the jam on top of the brie round and sprinkle walnuts and brown sugar on top of the jam.

Bake for 10-20 minutes until the walnuts have browned and the brie has melted. *

Remove from the oven and leave for 5 minutes.

Serve when still warm – with crackers, bread sticks, or good, crusty bread.

Notes:

Brie can cook a lot quicker than you think – my brie round needed to come out of the oven at just over 10 minutes, as it was starting to leak melted brie from the rind! Keep on checking your brie as it cooks, or you’ll end up with a rind floating in a puddle of molten cheese!

If you do have some baked brie leftovers, just wrap it in foil and keep in the refrigerator for around 3-4 days. You can eat it cold or you can reheat it in the oven until it’s melty again.
