Berry Galette Recipe

Berry Galette is the perfect dessert to make when you are running short of time and want to impress your guests at the same time. Sweet, buttery, and flaky crust filled with berries. When baked, the juices of the berries are released and mixed with flour to form a light pudding-like texture that’s so heavenly when served with a dollop of cream.

How to make homemade Berry Galette?

For this recipe, we have to add more sugar to the galette dough to balance the sourness in some of the berries in the filling.

Mix the flour, sugar, butter, and water, rub the mixture together with your hands or using a fork. Then gather the dough and form a disk. Wrap the dough in a plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour.

Roll out the dough to a circle and fill the center with the mixed berries filling. There is nothing after that but to bake the galette until golden in color and serve with either ice cream or cream.

What berries to use?

To make a good berry galette, it is best to use fresh berries, avoid using currants and blackberries or use a small amount of those two berries.

Can I make Berry Galette in advance?

You can make the dough in advance but never bake the berry galette a day ahead before serving. The juices from the berries might make the galette soggy when left in the fridge overnight.

The berry galette is best served at room temperature and served the same day it’s baked. It is always a good idea to taste the berries you will use in the galette recipe to decide if more sugar or less is needed.

Now that your galette is ready, serve it with cream if it’s at room temperature, or with ice cream if warm, you can skip the toppings and enjoy the galette with coffee.
