  2. Make a well in the middle and pour in the water plus 1 tablespoon of the olive oil.
  3. Knead the dough for 7-8 minutes until springy to the touch and a smooth soft dough has formed.
  4. Wipe a bowl with the remaining olive oil, place the dough inside and cover with cling film.
  5. Leave to rest for 1 hour.
  6. On a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper, place the lid of the camembert in the middle.
