Festive Cranberry & Pistachio Baked Camembert Cob Loaf

Baked Camembert Cob Loaf

If you’re hosting this year or simply bringing a dish to share with your friends and family, we have the perfect Christmas recipe to delight this festive season.

While some Christmas dishes will have you working over a hot stove for hours on end, a baked camembert cob loaf is as simple as it is delicious. Trust us, it’s the ultimate people-pleaser!

This moreish baked camembert cob loaf was created by Foodie Ling; adorned with piquant cranberries, gorgeous pistachios and a final lavish drizzle of local honey, it is full to the brim of fantastic Christmas flavours.


1 cob loaf of choice (this recipe uses a Sourdough cob loaf)
1 Paris Creek Farms Bio-dynamic Triple Cream Camembert 280g
1/4 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
A handful of chopped pistachios
1 tbsp melted butter
Honey to drizzle


  1. Preheat a fan-forced oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Using a small serrated knife, cut a hole in the top of the cob loaf just big enough for the cheese to sit in. Do not cut all the way down through the loaf.
  3. Remove some of the inner of the loaf so the cheese will fit snugly into it. Save this excess bread for croutons.
  4. Use the knife to make cuts approximately 1 inch apart around the rest of the loaf. Only cut three-quarters of the way down; do not cut through to the bottom.
  5. Brush the melted butter onto the bread between each sliced piece on the sides and over the top crust of the loaf, creating a nice gloss.
  6. Unwrap the cheese and place it in the hole in the bread. Using a small knife, gently cut off the top skin of the cheese.
  7. Arrange the cranberries on top of the cheese and transfer the loaf onto a baking tray. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until the cheese is melted and gooey and the bread is lightly toasted.
  8. Remove the loaf from the oven and top with chopped pistachios, and finish with a drizzle of honey. Serve while warm.
