It’s been a rather hectic – but blessed – fortnight, hence the lack of recent posts but I’ve had you guys in mind throughout and couldn’t wait to have some free time available again in order to be able to get back you.
I will endeavor to post every Tuesday and Thursday from now on, in order to get into some regularity. Do let me know what days you are more likely to read my blog posts though and we’ll see what we can do but again, I think Tuesdays and Thursdays currently work best for me.
Today’s recipe is this delicious baked camembert topped with melted muscovado* sugar, sweet warm berries and walnuts. This dish is too delicious, guys.
Just. Too. Delicious.
I’ve actually made it several times this week, all in the name of research, of course! Well, that excuse could have washed after the third time I made it on the first day alone, but since then, the fact that I’ve made it about twenty times already in the past fortnight is testament to how much I am in love this recipe. (Not to talk of the twenty pounds I’ve most probably piled on as a result!)
The creamy, warm cheese, topped with warm candied walnuts and hot, succulent berries soaked in a honey and balsamic sauce are all too pleasing for words… and then once you cut into the pile of heaven on a plate and see the mild, gooey goodness just oozing out. OMG!
Guys, I really should just be quiet now and give you the recipe so you can taste for yourselves, right? No problem.
Just be sure to let me know what you think of this recipe once you’ve made and tasted for yourself. I just know that you will love it.
- 1 Wheel of Camembert Cheese
- 1/2 Cup of Muscovado Sugar
- 2 Tablespoons of Butter
- 1 Cup of Walnuts
- 1 Cup of Blueberries & Blackberries
- 1/3 Cup of Honey
- 2 Tablespoons of Balsamic Vinegar
- Pre-heat the oven to 180c.
- Sprinkle two tablespoons of sugar on top of the cheese wheel and place in the oven for approximately 10 minutes until the sugar has melted and caramelized.
- In the mean time, place the butter in a pan and on a low heat, allow to melt before adding the remaining sugar and walnuts.
- Stir together for approximately 3-4 minutes, allowing for the sugar to melt and the walnuts to be fully coated. Remove from the pan and leave to cool.
- In a seperate pan, add the honey and vinegar and allow to heat before carefully folding in the berries. Set aside.
- Remove the Camembert from the oven, pour over the candied walnuts before adding the honey and balsamic glazed berries.
- Sit back, cut into this pile of heavenly, decadent goodness and enjoy!
* There are certain foods that are up for question as to whether or not they can be categorized as truly paleo, including muscovado sugar and oats (as indicated in a valued comment posted on my ‘Paleo Flapjacks‘ post).
I personally think that muscovado sugar and oats are indeed paleo and thus, will dedicate a post to this in the near future explaining why, as well as what other foods I also consider to be paleo.
In the meantime, thank you for all your lovely comments and happy cooking!
