Camembert & Garlic Wreath

Makes 10 servings
Prep time: 40 mins + 90 minutes proofing time
Cooking time: 30 mins

Garlic bread and melty cheese are fan-favourites on their own, but together they’re a match made in heaven. Make your wreath extra festive by sprinkling over a handful of fresh pomegranate seeds, or Pams Dried Cranberries for a pop of sweetness and colour!

Ingredients

  • 1 wheel of Pams Finest Southern Alps Camembert Cheese
  • 2 tsp Pams All Purpose Active Yeast
  • 2 tsp Pams Caster Sugar
  • 3 and a ½  cups Pams High Grade Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Pams Crushed Garlic

Method

  1. Mix the yeast, sugar and 300ml of warm water together in a large bowl and leave to sit for 5-10 minutes until the yeast has frothed and activated. Add the flour, 2 teaspoons of salt and a 2 tablespoons of olive oil and gradually start mixing until a dough forms.
  2. Pour the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for around 10 minutes, or until the dough becomes smooth and elastic. Place the dough back in the bowl, cover with cling film and leave in a warm place to proof for 45 minutes.
  3. Knock the proofed dough back with your fist and pour out onto a floured surface. Cut evenly into 24 pieces of dough. Roll into balls ready to build your wreath.
  4. Assemble by placing the camembert onto a lined baking tray arranging the dough balls in a circular formation around. Ensure the dough balls are all touching, cover with cling film and then leave to proof for a further 45 minutes.
  5. Mix together the garlic, a good glug of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Brush over the wreath with a pastry brush.
  6. 30 minutes before you’re ready to serve, remove the camembert from the centre and set aside. Bake the wreath for 20 minutes at 200°C. Remove from the oven, place the camembert back in the centre and bake for a further 10 minutes. Serve while still hot!
