Warm Brie with Peppered Caramel

by Betty Bee


This is ideal to share I just serve it whole and let everyone dig in. It’s nice as a quick lunch dish with bread and salad or serve it before dessert at a dinner party.

 Serves 6-8

 1 large Brie (approximately 200g)
50g sugar
2 teaspoons of freshly ground black pepper.
Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6/180 degrees centigrade .

 Put the sugar with two tablespoons of water in a small saucepan. Bring to the boil and allow to cook until a dark caramel colour. Remove from the heat and and a further three tablespoons of water. Leave to cool.

 Unwrap the cheese. Place on an oven proof serving dish. Pour over the caramel, sprinkle over the pepper. Bake in the oven for 5-10 minutes. Serve warm.
