blueberry Galette

I have a cake for you to make this weekend and it’s the best sweet thing I have eaten in a while. Seriously. It’s also quick and easy to make. Looking at the great weather outside that’s a plus, too.

A Galette is a rustic cake which can be both sweet and savory. Leaving out the sugar in the dough you can easily make a savory version with a vegetable filling. Today I have decided to make the sweet version as I have been waiting for fresh blueberries so long and now the blueberry season is finally here.

After a hot week in the office I am looking forward to some outdoor action and swimming. So less words today. Enjoy your weekend!

Piece of Blueberry Galette

  • 1 3/4 cup rye flour
  • 1/3 cup raw cane sugar
  • 150g cold butter
  • 1 egg
  • A pinch of salt
  • 3 cups whole fresh blueberries
  • Juice and zest from one lemon
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Preheat oven to 180°C. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, egg, butter and salt. Transfer the dough to a working surface and roll out the dough into a round shape. In a bowl, combine the blueberries, lemon juice and zest, honey, cornstarch and vanilla extract and mix well. Spoon the filling onto the dough, leaving an uncovered border. Fold the edges over the filling. Bake the Galette for about 45 minutes, until it is golden brown. Allow to cool down. Serve plain or with whipped cream.

    1. Hallo Claudia,

      das Rezept ist genial…ich habe es schon 2mal gebacken. LECKER!!
      Leider gelingt mir der Teig nicht wirklich. Er ist sehr klebrig u. ich kann ihn nicht ausrollen.
      Kannst Du evtl. die Mengenangaben präzisieren (z.B. Mehl: gr…?)

      Vielen Dank.

      Sonnige Grüße
      Anne

      • Hallo Anne, das freut mich ja zu hören! Der Teig war bei mir auch recht feucht, so dass ich ihn sehr eingemehlt habe. 1 3/4 cup Mehl sind gut 200g. Liebe Grüße. Claudia
