This rustic, yet elegant summer fruit galette is super easy and extremely delicious!
The reason why I love this dessert is because this is seriously like one of easiest bakes ever! It’s very easy to make and it’s made with very simple ingredients. I make this when I don’t feel like spending ages in the kitchen trying to bake something, but in the mood for a lovely dessert.
As long as you have some sort of fresh fruit, flour, yoghurt, egg and oil, you can bake yourself a beautiful galette!
Galette is originally a French term that refers to a round crusty cake. Galettes can be made either sweet with fruits and sugar, or savoury with ham and emmental cheese for example. I like making the savoury option to be served for breakfast in the morning or brunch in the afternoon. But the sweet version is also as wonderful as the savoury one, and works perfectly for breakfast or a dessert to be served at any time of the day.
This can work with any fruit that you like, my favourite is apple cinnamon galette as it reminds me of the good old apple pie, but plums are now in season and as my parents have a plum tree, and I love plums, I’ve decided to add some to this galette. And that definitely made this galette extra special! I also get super excited when I use fresh fruits from my parents’ garden to my cooking/baking as all produce is fresh and organic! Yum!
I either chop up the fruits as you can see in the picture above, or make pretty slices. Whatever works for you! And then I just toss the chopped fruits in ground cinnamon and sugar, and the filling is ready to go into the galette!
There are two kinds of galette crusts, one that’s made with yeasted dough or a regular one that’s made with baking powder. I like both versions, but the yeasted version needs a little bit more time so if you’re not a rush go for the yeasted version. This version that I’m sharing with you today, is the one that’s made with baking powder.
Now you might be surprised but I actually baked this galette in my wonderful multicooker Redmond! It comes with a great non stick round ceramic bowl, which is perfect for this galette as it’s medium in size and nothing sticks to it. And the most important feature about this multicooker is that it comes with 3D heating, which means that the heat is distributed evenly when baking so you get a perfectly baked gorgeous galette.
To keep the fruits juicy and soft, you can cover the fruit part with a round piece of foil throughout the baking process. I baked this on the “Bake” programme for 50 minutes. To read my full Multicooker Redmond review, follow this link. I use the Redmond RMC-M150 and strongly recommend it.
I use my multicooker to cook all sort of things! From soups and stews, to cakes and pilaffs! I love the fact that it’s quite small, and saves a lot of space in my little kitchen. I mean, instead of having to buy a bread maker, a soup maker, a rice cooker etc… I just use my beloved multicooker!
When I first got my multicooker I couldn’t believe that people actually could bake in it, but now I use it to bake loads of cakes and lovely bakes.
