In the summer season this fruit cannot be missing in our kitchen. In addition, it provides us with many very beneficial nutrients for our health. The plum is rich in vitamins and minerals and provides us with a lot of fiber. Likewise, it is an incomprehensible intestinal regulator in our diet.

A healthy recipe

In summer we like to eat light food, since in the heat we suffer with heavy meals. That is why the fruit takes on a special importance in our diet. We always recommend eating fruits raw, fresh and especially in season.

However, there are times when it is fun and also healthy to get out of the monotony by making these types of recipes with fruits.

When to have the plum galette?

These types of sweet recipes are ideal to take as a dessert or snack. In summer it is the ideal time to eat it, since plums are in season. You just need to want to try this delicious dessert that is prepared very quickly. Little time in the oven and enjoy.

What do we need to make the plum galette?

As you can see, the ingredients for this delicious sweet preparation are very basic. Therefore, it allows us to highlight the flavor of plums.

Don’t be tempted to load the cake with extra plums. Likewise, stone fruits give off a lot of juice, which can drip off the cake and make the dough and baking sheet dirty.

Adding hazelnuts to this sweet preparation does double duty. On the one hand, adding a delicious hazelnut flavor and on the other hand, they also help soak up some of those plum juices.

Both for making the dough and for the filling are ingredients that we normally have in our kitchen.

Recipe preparation

  1. At the beginning, we make the dough and for this, we mix the butter from the fridge with the flour until it is well mixed.

  2. Next, we add the sugar to the mixture and knead.

  3. Finally, we add the water and continue kneading until we get a uniform dough. We cover it and reserve it in the fridge.

  4. Now we have to prepare the filling. First, we wash the plums well, we remove the bone and without peeling, we cut it into slices.

  5. Next, we take out the dough that we have reserved in the fridge and stretch it with a rolling pin. I like it with a round shape, but I leave your creativity free.

  6. Once stretched, put it on an hour paper in its tray. In the center of the dough we add the remaining ingredients in the following order: strawberry jam, the toasted hazelnuts and the cut plums.

  7. The next step is to paint the edges of the dough with beaten egg and we are closing folds or folds.

  8. Once the folds are made, we paint the edge with the egg again. Next, we sprinkle the brown sugar, and finally the icing sugar.

Recipe tips

To roll out the dough with a rolling pin , spread the table with a little flour so that it does not stick to the table. If you have a kneading machine, follow its instructions.

The strawberry jam, spread it well over the dough with a spoon making circles so that it is well spread.

The butter is recommended that it is cold from the refrigerator so that it mixes with the flour and has an earthy texture.

We can also make the shortcrust dough with whole wheat flour. In this way these dessert recipes are even healthier. Whole wheat flour has certain benefits that refined flour does not have. However, with refined flour, the shortcrust comes out more crisp.

The ingredients that are added to the dough, have to be separated from the edge so that folds can be made in it.

To paint the edge of the dough with the egg, it is recommended that we use a kitchen brush. In this way, the egg spreads better.

When we take this preparation out of the oven, it is advisable to wait until it is cold before eating it.

I hope you like the plum galette.
