• 500 g strong white bread flour
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 7 g sachet of fast-action dried yeast
  • 0.5 tbsp Fairtrade white caster sugar by Sainsbury's
  • 1 tbsp olive oil by Sainsbury's, plus extra for greasing and drizzling
  • 2 large onions, peeled and sliced into thin wedges
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 10 g fresh rosemary leaves, picked and chopped
  • 250 g Taste the Difference baking Camembert
  • 7.5 g fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp clear honey


  1. 1

    For the bread, put the flour and salt in a large bowl and make a well in the middle. Tip in the yeast, sugar and 300ml lukewarm water and mix together with a wooden spoon.

  2. 2

    Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 5 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl, cover with cling film and leave for about 1 hour, or until doubled in size.

  3. 3

    For the onion topping, heat the olive oil in a large pan over a medium-low heat and fry the onion for 8-10 minutes until softened. Add one of the sliced garlic cloves and rosemary and fry for a further minute. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 220°C, fan 200°C, gas 7.

  4. 4

    When the dough has risen, knock it back, then transfer to a baking sheet and spread it out with your hands to make a rough 34cm diameter circle. Using your fingers, make little dimples all over the dough, then spread the onion mixture over the top. Drizzle with a little olive oil and bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden on top and soft in the middle.

  5. 5

    While the bread is baking, prepare the Camembert fondue. Remove the sleeve and wrapper and replace the Camembert in its ceramic baking dish. Cut a cross in the top of the rind and poke in the second clove of sliced garlic. Scatter over the thyme leaves and drizzle with the honey.

  6. 6

    When the bread is baked, remove from the oven and cover loosely with foil to keep warm. Reduce the oven temperature to 190ºC, fan 170ºC, gas 5. Place the Camembert in its ceramic dish minutes, until oozing in the middle.

  7. 7

    Serve on a board with the warm bread to tear and dip in.
