Summer Fruit Galette 005This week’s recipe on page 366-367 Baking: From My Home to Yours * Summer Fruit Galette has been selected by Michelle from Michelle in Colorado Springs.

Galette designates different types of round and flat crusty cakes or a buckwheat crêpe. It ’s also a colloquial expression for money or means disc = record

My fellow blogger Véronique told me, that all galettes, which aren’t crêpes are easy to transport, like this

For the preparation you roll out half of the Good for Almost Everything Pie Dough, coat it with fruits and use a kind of custard – egg, sugar and butter. IMHO this custard gives the galette a strange look, Steph said it has a sort of „snotty“ looking. A agree with that, perhaps that’s the reason why there’s no picture in the book? In any case, the taste was good.

For the same reason as last week I substituted the rhubarb with redcurrants. I followed the advice to freeze the galette 15 minutes before baking. This time a crisp crust, no sogginess like here.
