A while ago my blogging buddy Allie of Baking a Moment concocted an incredible Danish pastry recipe with a blackberry ginger filling and as soon as I saw that I put ginger berry jam on my to-do list.

For this baked brie here I made a ginger cardamom raspberry condiment that adds some great flavors to the creamy, oozy cheese and makes it a delicious and also somewhat fancy appetizer. The jam is fantastic all by itself, I kept eating it with a spoon throughout the photo shoot. I’m going to try it out on some sweet dishes as well and will be sure to post any noteworthy recipes I come up with. Meanwhile enjoy this brie!

How to make baked brie with raspberry jam:

The jam for this recipe is quickly made on the stovetop, there is no canning or anything like that required.

You start by adding 6 ounces frozen raspberries, 1/4 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 teaspoon corn starch (to thicken the jam) into a saucepan and start to cook the mix.

Once the raspberries are thawed and are starting to break down you add 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger and 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom and cook the jam for about another ten minutes. That’s all for the jam!

While the raspberry jam cools you can put the brie in the oven. You simply take 1 entire brie, set it on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake it just like that until the inside of the cheese is melted (about ten minutes). The brie is ready if it jiggles when you shake the baking sheet a bit.

      Hey Allie, thank YOU so much for the jam/ginger idea. I’ve made this jam a dozen times now, I love it. :)

    Oh Nicole, I love cheese like I have a serious addiction, and Brie is one of the ones I love most! I really love the the spices you used to compliment the savory cheese and the sweet jam.

    Stellar photos as always :)

    Really love all the flavors going on her. Cardamom is not used nearly enough here in the States as compared elsewhere in the culinary world. And who wouldn’t want to scrape a cracker into all that gooey goodness… wow!

    Hi Nicole,
    I was here earlier today looking at this recipe and then got totally immersed in your blog looking at the photos till work interfered. I just hate it when my job interferes with my blogging! lol
    I’m a big fan of baked brie and don’t you think raspberries are the best thing on the planet?
    This photo is so beautiful and every time I look at your composition, I learn something more. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

    Nicole, the rich color of this Ginger Cardamom Raspberry Jam is just gorgeous and must taste amazing with those spices! Beautifully presented and I luv the warmness of the background/chair you used. I wanted something of that feel for a post I just worked on but didn’t have anything like that…send it over, please! ;)
