Apple & Bramble Gallette Recipe
Blog · Posted August 31, 2023
It’s Bramble season and Sue is baking up a storm!
Our bramble bush at Mainstreet is laden with fruit. It is a great crop this year so Sue has taken her tongs to the bush (saving her fingers from the thorns) and is creating lots of delicious baked goods with the brambles. She has recentely brought togther a recipe for these delicious Apple and Bramble Galettes so that you too can make use of the brambles you forage.
500g Plain Flour
250g unsalted butter (chopped)
150g caster sugar
50ml double cream
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 medium egg (beaten)
Pinch of salt
6 sweet apples (Sue used Braeburn)
200g Caster sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla essence
1 beaten egg to brush
Demerara sugar to sprinkle.
FIRST MAKE THE PASTRY:
Rub the chopped butter into the flour until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Mix in the sugar, salt and baking powder.
Mix in the beaten egg and cream to form a dough.
Wrap in cling film and chill for an hour.
NEXT IS THE FILLING-
Peel and chunky chop the apples.
Wash the brambles.
Place the apples in a saucepan with the sugar and a little water and cook until softened but still chunky.
Add the brambles and vanilla and cook for another few minutes but making sure the berries remain whole.
Allow to cool.
NOW TO ASSEMBLE TO GALETTES –
Divide the pastry into 12 pieces and roll our into thin-ish circles.
Fill the middle with the fruit mixture, leaving an inch border around the edge.
brish the edge with the beaten egg, then fold over onto itself, slightly overlapping the fruit and press down to seal.
Place on a lined baking tray.
Brish the edges with egg wash and sprinkle with demerara sugar.
Bake at 170°C for 20-25 minutes.
Allow to cool slightly before removing them from the baking tray.
Can be served cold or would be very nice warm, served with a dollop of Crème fraîche. You could also make on large Galette using the same method.
