Sourdough Baked Brie with Cherry Preserves and Dark Chocolate

In the vast landscape of culinary creativity, there are moments that redefine our understanding of indulgence. Recently, a TikTok video by Leahscucina changed my life - in the form of Sourdough Baked Brie with Cherry Preserves and Dark Chocolate. A tantalizing combination that transcends ordinary snacking, this culinary masterpiece promises a symphony of flavors that will leave you craving for more!

In her TikTok video, Leahscucina begins by delicately slicing the crown off a freshly baked sourdough loaf, reserving it for later use. She hollows out the bread, transforming it into a vessel ready to embrace a harmonious fusion of flavors.

The star of the show, the brie, undergoes a meticulous process as Leahscucina expertly trims its rind to tame any lingering bitterness. Drawing from her culinary experiments, she opts to cut the brie into chunks, ensuring a seamless integration with the other ingredients as they melt in the oven.

The stage is set as the hollowed sourdough becomes a canvas for the exquisite pairing of Bonne Maman Cherry Preserves and 70% dark chocolate adorned with almonds and cherries. Leahscucina's rationale for choosing the slightly less sweet chocolate is revealed—its subtle bitterness will play a perfect counterpoint to the sweetness of the jam.

Cherry Preserves

With a flair that befits a culinary virtuoso, she assembles the masterpiece, layering the cherry-laden preserves, decadent dark chocolate, and brie chunks within the hollowed sourdough. Leahscucina's advice to accompany this indulgent creation with a bottle of red wine seems nothing short of essential—this recipe beckons the soul to savor each bite.

As the ensemble bakes in the oven at 350 degrees in a convection bake for approximately 40 minutes, anticipation builds. Leahscucina advises occasional checks and gentle mixing, ensuring the components coalesce into a symphony of flavors. Should the side pieces of bread toast prematurely, she recommends a simple solution: set it aside and allow the baked brie to shine.

In part two she reveals the molten masterpiece. A light mix and a dollop of the heavenly mixture on a crispy torn piece of bread complete the spectacle. Leahscucina's ecstatic expression upon the first taste serves as an unwavering testament—this is a must-try recipe!

Elevate the experience further by pairing this delight with Granny Smith apple slices. Whether you're planning a soirée or receive a last-minute invitation, this easily assembled snack is a showstopper. Just grab your sourdough, brie, chocolate, and preserves, and let the oven work its magic.

As Leahscucina rightly declares, "Who doesn't love a baked brie?" Indeed, only those yet to discover the myriad of tantalizing variations that await in the realm of sourdough baked brie with cherry preserves and dark chocolate. Embark on this culinary escapade, and let your taste buds revel in the symphony of flavors that is sure to leave a lasting impression!
