Nothing screams summer quite like the bounty of fresh fruit.
Every weekend I escape the studio for the Portland farmer’s market and this time of year it’s a total dream! Every stand boasts piles of fruit, every variety you can think of, freshly picked, many organic, and ready for however you want to eat it – whether snacking on the ride home (cause how can you help it!) or once you get there, to make this recipe for Summer blackberry plum galette with earl grey cream!
I love the combination of plums and blackberries in this galette. It’s perfectly sweet and the flavors are just remarkable with the fruit being so freshly picked. A slice of this with a drizzle of earl grey cream and a glass of rose’ made for a perfect weekend evening!
If for some reason you haven’t ever made a galette before, get ready.
They are beautiful and naturally rustic in presentation, so really there’s no way to mess up. I love that in the kitchen – wild and free – a space where you can slow down and just savor life and the beauty of it all for a moment.
Summer Blackberry Plum Galette with Earl Grey Cream (Gluten Free)
- 130 g 1 cup almond flour
- 322 g 2 ¼ cups gluten free flour blend
- 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 230 g 1 cup or 2 sticks chilled butter, cut into pieces
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 tablespoon turbinado sugar
- 325 g 1 ¾ cup blackberries
- 340 g 7 medium sized plums, pitted, sliced
- 1 tablespoon arrowroot flour
- 1 ½ teaspoons lemon juice fresh squeezed
- 55 g ⅓ cup coconut sugar
Earl Grey Cream
- 167 g ¾ cup heavy cream
- ⅓ cup whole-milk vanilla yogurt
- 2 Earl Grey tea bags or any black variety
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
- Prepare dough
- In a food processor, add flour, sugar, and salt. Pulse just to combine.
- Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal with a few pea-size pieces remaining.
- Slowly add 2-4 tablespoons ice water, pulsing lightly. *Add water slowly, and only enough until you see the dough come together.
- Gently pat dough into a 1” thick disk. Wrap in plastic and chill at least 45 minutes. (Dough can be made 2 days ahead. Keep chilled, or freeze up to 1 month.)
- Allow to warm at room temperature just for a few minutes so it’s moldable to roll. *Amount of time to warm will depend on the temperature in your house. It’s important that the butter stays cold!
- On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a wide circle, approximately 10” and, about ½ “ thick. *Recommended to transfer to a layer of parchment paper soon after, and finish rolling there. You’ll have a bit extra dough- make something delicious with it!
