Camembert and garlic wreath

Serves   10
Prep time: 40 minutes + 90 minutes proofing time
Cooking time: 30 mins

Garlic bread and melty cheese are fan-favourites on their own, but together they’re a match made in heaven. Make your wreath extra festive by sprinkling over a handful of fresh pomegranate seeds, or Pams Dried Cranberries for a pop of sweetness and colour!

Bread and camembert wreath




  • 1 wheel of Pams Finest Southern Alps Camembert Cheese
  • 2 tsp Pams All Purpose Active Yeast
  • 2 tsp Pams Caster Sugar
  • 3 ½ cups Pams Plain Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Pams Crushed Garlic


  1. Mix the yeast, sugar and 300ml of warm water together in a large bowl and leave to sit for 5-10 minutes until the yeast has frothed and activated. Add the flour, 2 tsp of salt and 2 Tbsp of olive oil and gradually start mixing until a dough forms.
  2. Pour the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for around 10 minutes, or until the dough becomes smooth and elastic. Place the dough back in the bowl, cover with cling film and leave in a warm place to proof for 45 minutes. 
  3. Knock the proofed dough back with your fist and pour out onto a floured surface. Cut evenly into 24 pieces of dough. Roll into balls, ready to build your wreath.
  4. Assemble by placing the camembert in the centre of lined baking tray, and arranging the dough balls in a circular formation around it. Ensure the dough balls are all touching, cover with cling film and then leave to proof for a further 45 minutes.
  5. Mix together the garlic, a good glug of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Brush over the wreath with a pastry brush.
  6. 30 minutes before you’re ready to serve, remove the camembert from the centre and set aside. Bake the wreath for 20 minutes at 200°C. Remove from the oven, place the camembert back in the centre, and bake for a further 10 minutes. Serve while still hot! 

Tip: Make your wreath dairy free and vegan by leaving out the cheese! These warm rolls are still delicious served on their own and will add a festive flair to your Christmas table spread..

Tip: Add 2 tsp of finely chopped rosemary to your garlic and oil mixture for added flavour! .
