TWD-bwj Berry Galette

Well, at least this week I managed to get a taste of what I baked but I had to hurry!  It’s a good thing that I made 2 of them.  Although the recipe called for only 1/2 of a dough recipe I thought that at 8 inches for one galette it might not last long so I made the full recipe and made two galettes.  It turned out to be an excellent idea as one almost disappeared in the first half hour!

Both of the galettes were blueberry-nectarine just like the pies.  That was just an excellent combination and I had leftover blueberries that needed using up.  I was so glad that I put them on a rimmed pan because the juices leaked quite a bit.  I think next time the crust needs to be rolled a little thicker and maybe a little less water in the crust.  It smelled wonderful and tasted good although a little dry due to the leaking juice.

Instead of regular sugar I sprinkled turbinado sugar on top and added extra sugar to the fruit as a number of people said that it wasn’t sweet enough. I, also, subbed cornbread mix for the cornmeal as that is what I had on hand.  I looked at the ingredients and the two main ones were cornmeal and flour so I put 1/4 cup less flour in and increased the cornbread mix by 1/4 cup.

I’ve been wanting to make a galette so I was so glad this recipe was chosen this month. This recipe is from the book Baking with Julia by Dorie Greenspan.  If you would like to try making this yourself see the recipe at the hosts blogs Lisa of Tomato Thymes in the Kitchen and Andrea of The Kitchen Lioness.

  1. The blueberry nectarine combo was definitely a winner and one definitely worth revisiting.
    Yes, these went pretty quickly in our house too :-)
