Why Is My Salted Caramel Baked Brie Oily?
When baking brie in the oven, there are some factors to consider to ensure that the end result isn’t too oily. Here are some tips to ensure you get the perfect baked brie every time:
Use a younger type of brie. Older types of brie may end up becoming more runny when baked, so it’s better to use a younger variety. Try to find those that are labeled as “double cream” rather than the “triple cream” type of brie.
Don’t bake it too long. If you find that your baked brie resembles a puddle by the end of baking, it’s probably baking for too long. The baking time largely depends on the type of oven you have, so you can try to reduce it by 2-3 minutes.
Don’t remove the rind or outer layer. Some people make the mistake of removing the outer layer or the rind, which isn’t necessary for this recipe. The rind helps the brie heat up evenly. Without it the cheese might overcook and end up too oily.
