Let's begin with a brief history lesson - Galette is the French name for a round cake. Ooh-la-la! There are many kinds of galettes available, some are eaten traditionally during holidays and are also more festive. This galette, in particular, is very simple to make and is a rustic version of a fancy tart or pie.
In this tart, you don't need to blind bake or follow multiple steps during preparation which means this recipe is easy and quick to make. On top of it all, the shape is formed by hand and doesn’t use any mold or tin so the outcome looks homemade and lovely.
Since it’s summer, I wanted to use savory summer fruits to really enjoy their flavor during this hot season. I love nectarine and can eat them every day during the summer months, they are just so refreshing. Combining them to make a cake just makes the recipe even better. If you want, you can use peaches or plums instead.
In this cake, I used whole spelt flour to uplift the flavor. It is also a healthier flour too. If you prefer, you can use the same amount of regular plain flour instead.
The other ingredients in this galette are ground almonds and sliced almonds which fit the taste of nectarines perfectly.
Another option for a summer fruity dessert is my mango crumble recipe, it is also vegan, be sure to check it out.
