Blackberry Peach Galette Recipe

The crust for this tasty blackberry and peach galette is made from whole wheat. This is a lovely, rustic dessert that is great for summer!

Filling – 5 ripe peaches, peeled and sliced – 6 ounces of blackberries (one small container) – 1 teaspoon cinnamon – ½ teaspoon nutmeg – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – 2 tablespoons butter, cut into small piece – 1 tablespoon honey – 1 tablespoon raw sugar Whole wheat galette crust* – 1 ¼ cups whole wheat pastry flour or whole wheat flour – ½ teaspoon salt – 8 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cubed – 4–6 tablespoons ice water – raw sugar, for dusting


Step 1


The crust must be prepared first to chill in the fridge. Mix flour and salt in a large bowl. Cut cold butter with a pastry cutter or butter knife and hands until coarse crumbs form.

Step 2

Add four tablespoons of ice water and stir until it forms a dough. My dough only needed four tablespoons, but if it looks dry, add one tablespoon at a time until it's moist.

Step 3

Refrigerate the dough for one hour after forming it into a disc and wrapping it tightly in plastic. For a flaky crust, use cold butter. Mix all filling ingredients in a bowl.

Step 4

Preheat the oven to 400 F after refrigerating the dough for nearly an hour. Parchment a baking sheet or large jelly roll pan to catch juices while the galette cooks.

Step 5

Place the dough disc on a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough into a 12-inch circle. Don't stretch it too far—you don't want holes or thin spots.

Step 6

Roll dough and place on baking pan. Put the filling in the galette's centre with your hands. Lay out the berries and peaches in a pleasing pattern, leaving two inches of crust.

Step 7

Start at one end and pleat the edge over the filling. Gallettes are rustic, so don't worry about uniformity. Use a pastry brush or cold water on the crust. Dust the galette lightly with raw sugar.

Step 8

Bake 35–45 minutes until crust is lightly golden. (The original recipe called for 25–35 minutes, but my galette took longer.) Cool slightly before cutting and serving.
