Ingredients for the Creamy Camembert Cheese Dip

  • 1 Camembert cheese (around 240g)
  • 200 g crème fraîche
  • 100 g cubed bacon
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 2 tbsp date syrup
  • 2 tbsp pine nuts
If you decide to serve this dip with some freshly baked bake-off bread feel free to heat up the dip along with the bread. Just make sure your dish is oven-safe! The dip happens to be delicious when warm as well.


How to Make an Easy Camembert & Date Syrup Dip

  • Start by frying the bacon - without adding any additional butter or oil - in a pan.
  • In the meantime, remove most of the rind from the Camembert with a knife or a potato peeler. Then cut the cheese into smaller pieces and add them to the blender.
  • Add the crème fraîche and one tablespoon of date syrup to the Camembert pieces and mix everything together until you're left with a well-mixed, smooth dip.
  • When the bacon bits start to get some color on them, add the sprigs of rosemary to the pan and fry them together until the bacon is nice and crispy.
  • Scoop the bacon out of the pan and fry the pine nuts in the remaining bacon grease until they turn golden brown.
  • Scoop the spreadable Camembert into a shallow plate or bowl and smooth out the surface of the dip with the back of a spoon.
  • Scatter the crispy bacon bits and pine nuts over the dip.
  • Pour another tablespoon of date syrup over the Camembert dip, then garnish the dish with the leftover fried rosemary sprigs if preferred. Serve & enjoy!
