Baked Camembert Cheese And Other Weekend Goodies...

I have discovered baked Camembert cheese! Slice off the top bit (1/2cm),stick in some garlic pieces,dab the top with some extra virgin olive oil...or keep it plain if you don't want to spoil the plain goodness of it...and stick it in the oven at 180 oC for 15-20 min. If you buy the type sold in a little wooden box, make sure it is fastened together with staples,not the ones glued together because they tend to come unglued in the heat of the oven...ask me I tried it!!!




I stuck mine in the oven in a little bowl like this...

Serve it with some crusty french loaf..

Very,very nice!





I found these quirky little miniature loaf pans at a shop the other day and made some little quiches....


The kids loved it cause it looked like the Colonel's little bread loaves....





My efforts at domesticating my husband is paying of big time as he baked a batch of buttermilk rusks ALL by himself today!!

They are disappearing out of the oven as we speak..,they might not make the process of drying out and storing...






We named this guy  Trompie and he is doing great!

He has discovered dog food and is being slowly weaned of the bottle.

He has gained a lot of weight and is strong,healthy and playful.

As you can see, he is totally at home...


That's our weekend wrap up!


The End

  5. Pleased to hear Trompie is doing well. Baked cheese is just the best :) As for rusks we are never without them in this house but I have not managed to get my husband making them yet. Next 'to do' on my list :)) I have been unable to get buttermilk here and I now use crème fraiche, think it actually tastes much better. I also use wholemeal flour. Keep well Diane

    1. Hi Dianne,I will try it with creme fraiche,you can make your own buttermilk by adding a Tbs of vinegar to 500ml of milk and letting it "sit"for about 5 min...Cules also used part wholemeal flour in this batch. Delicious!!
