We are back with a new recipe very “famiglia” even if it is a typical French recipe to celebrate Epiphany.

It is a recipe that we have made at home many times, almost every year in fact, as it is quite simple and very tasty. We hope you like it a lot and you can try it sometime to change from the roscón or just make it as a dessert.

Ingredients: (8 persons)

  • 2 puff pastry doughs (the good butter or homemade ones). For a quicker and easier recipe use ready-made doughs.
  • 125gr sugar
  • 60gr of soft butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 150gr almond flour
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 2 tablespoons of toasted rum (or orange blossom). Optional but recommended
  • 1 egg to brown the “galette” with a pinch of salt
  • Optional: 100g of pastry cream for the real “frangipane” (the filling of the galette)

Recipe preparation

Whisk together the sugar and the softened butter (not melted) and add the almond flour.

Scrape the vanilla pod and add it to the preparation.

Add 2 whole eggs and the rum or orange blossom.

Put a sheet of parchment paper on the baking tray and place a circle of one of the doughs, place the mixture previously made on top leaving 2 cm of dough around it that you should wet lightly with a brush and water to be able to close it with the other dough.

Place the king figurine in the middle of the pastry and cover with the second circle of puff pastry slightly larger than the base, weld the edges tightly around the 2 circles.

Beat an egg with a pinch of salt, wait 2 minutes and brush over the galette with a pastry brush.

Bake in the oven at 200ºC for 30 minutes or 40 minutes, depending on the oven. The bottom crust should be done and the top well browned. You can make drawings with the tip of a knife on the top dough.

Et voilà! La galette des Rois est prête! Dégustez en bonne compagnie

Whoever gets the king figurine is crowned (so keep a crown handy).
