Another galette – seasonal berries


Today it feels more like late summer than early august here, and I would happily keep the sunshine with us longer. Today I also found out that apparently summer is still going strong and hot in Netherlands, so I can enjoy some nice sunny days there before the autumn really is here. And I absolutely L O V E autumn, just not ready for it yet, because there is so much nice things to enjoy in the summer time – like fresh berries. I have been eating so much berries the past weeks that I could soon easily turn in to blueberry myself. NAM! And there is no summer without blueberry pie, so I made another galette, but this time sweet with seasonal berries.

PREHEAT the oven into 225 degrees (C)


MEASURE all the ingredients into big bowl

MIX with your hand until the pastry begins to come together

COVER the bowl with a clean towel and leave to rise for a while




MIX berries in a bowl

SEASON with sugar, cinnamon, cardamom and ground vanilla

Assembling the galette

SPREAD into a clean work surface buckwheat flour

ROLL OUT the pastry dough into a thin circle

TRANSFER the pastry dough to a baking paper

ADD berries to the middle evenly – leave about 2 cm from the edges without filling


GENTLY fold over the pastry border, so that the edges will be overlapping the filling – be careful here, the dough brakes easily.

BAKE for 35-45 minutes in the center of the oven

LET cool a little and decorate with powder sugar

This galette would be perfect together with vanilla ice cream, or whipped cream. And if you do not have blueberries and raspberries, try any other berries you have. Be creative, and use the most delicious berries of the season.
