Though I love baking, I don't bake much. There are so many things on my list to bake, but I always need some kind of push to bake. Tempted by all the wonderful things my fellow bloggers baked, I joined a baking group called Baking Partners. Last month's challenge was bagels and I really wanted to try them. But due to some personal things, I couldn't make them and I didn't want this month's challenge at any cost. For this month, Suja of Kitchen Corner Try It suggested to make a sweet or savory galette.
A galette is a French term that refers to a flat round cakes with a flaky pastry. I wanted to try a savory galette, but when I saw this blueberry galette recipe, I fixed my mind. The galette turned out really good, it was not overly sweet and the combination of blueberry and almonds was just amazing. This dessert has lot of butter and sugar, but it's fine to indulge once in a while, so do try it for some special occasion. Enjoy the gaette by itself or serve with icecream or whipped cream.
Notes and Tips
- You can make the galette dough in advance. Keep for 10 minutes at room temperature before rolling.
- For the srreusel topping, almond meal and essence is optional.
- You can use coarse cornmeal instead of semolina.
