Baked Camembert with sobrasada, honey and almonds - if you want to be really authentic, you can use a Spanish cheese such as Torta del Casar or Cañareal Cremoso, but Camembert is cheaper and more readily available and it is questionable as to whether you would actually want to bake the other cheeses. Sobrasada is available in mild or spicy versions, so the choice is yours. You could use ground almonds, but the flavour and consistency is best when using whole or flaked, especially if you have some Marcona almonds. One cheese will serve as a starter or tapa shared between two people.

Prep Time10 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time25 mins
 2 Medium-size (approx. 250g) Camembert Cheeses
 100 g Sobrasada
 100 ml Runny Honey
 100 g Almondspeeled
1

Very carefully with a flat-bladed knife, cut the top off the Camembert and set it aside. If the cheese has come in a wooden box, you can keep it in the base to maintain the shape, otherwise place it in a small, ovenproof dish.

2

Cut or tear the sobrasada into pieces and push them into the cheese at intervals.

3

Crush the almonds (a pestle and mortar is best) until you have a paste or a coarse powder. Drizzle the honey over the cheese and then top with the almonds.

4

Replace the lid and then bake in a hot oven for 15 minutes.

5

Carefully remove the lid and serve with bread, breadsticks or tortas de aceite to dip in the melted cheese.
