Apple Galette

It’s October, and Autumn has very much arrived in the UK – it suddenly feels much cooler (I must get those winter clothes out of the loft!), the days are noticeably getting shorter and there are apples everywhere. It seems like it isn’t a good year for apples after the deluge of rain we had for months in the spring, but there are still far more apples than we can easily eat – this means getting creative.

This is a fabulous pudding, inspired by a Gordon Ramsey programme we saw a while ago on TV. It looks impressive and like it might be quite complex but takes only moments to make. Ideal served with dairy-free ice cream.

Apple Galette (dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, soya-free, sesame-free, vegetarian and vegan)

makes 1 tart, which serves 4

  • 1 pack of puff pastry, shop bought is fine as long as its definitely dairy-free
  • 10g dairy-free spread, melted
  • 1-2 crisp eating apples, I used Jazz apples
  • 2 tbsps caster sugar
  • Icing sugar, to sprinkle

– Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Centigrade/Gas Mark 6

– Roll out the pastry to 1/2 cm thick, then score round a dinner plate to make a perfect circle.

– Transfer to an un-greased baking sheet.

– Quarter and core the apples (no need to peel unless you really want to), cut into very thin slices.

– Decoratively arrange the slices onto the pastry circle.

– Brush the pastry and apples with the melted spread.

– Generously and evenly sprinkle the caster sugar over the top of the tart.

– Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden on top and the pastry is cooked through.

– Dust the top with icing sugar.

– Serve warm with dairy-free ice cream, custard or pouring dairy-free cream.
