Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 4 min.
Galette de Fougerolles
Shape 200 g Brioche dough into 2 balls.

Stage 2 - 3 min.
Galette de Fougerolles
Stand a deep 7-inch (18 cm) dessert ring on a sheet of cooking parchment laid on a baking sheet.

Stage 3 - 6 min.
Galette de Fougerolles
Roll out the 2 pieces of brioche dough with a rolling pin into circles about 7 inches (18 cm) in diameter.

Stage 4 - 2 min.
Galette de Fougerolles
Lay a circle of dough in the bottom of the ring. Don't worry if it doesn't go right to the edge, as it will swell during baking.

Stage 5 - 2 min.
Galette de Fougerolles
Glaze around the edge of the circle using a brush.

Stage 6 - 3 min.
Galette de Fougerolles
Spread 250 g Rich hazelnut buttercream over the dough, keeping it inside the glazed edge.

Stage 7 - 2 min.
Galette de Fougerolles
Sit the second circle of dough on top and press down lightly around the edge to seal.

Stage 8 - 2 hours
Galette de Fougerolles
Glaze all over the top.

Leave in a warm place to rise for 2 hours.

Stage 9 - 2 min.
Galette de Fougerolles
Meanwhile, drain 50 g Griottine cherries.

Stage 10 - 5 min.
Galette de Fougerolles
Roll out 100 g Craquelin (sweet cracker dough) thinly.

Stage 11 - 3 min.
Galette de Fougerolles
Cut out a circle of craquelin 7 inches (18 cm) in diameter. Use a plate of the right size to help you.

Stage 12 - 2 min.
Galette de Fougerolles
Once the brioche has risen well, preheat the oven to 360°F (180°C).

Lay the craquelin on top of the galette.

Stage 13 - 7 min.
Galette de Fougerolles
Push the cherries into the top of the galette through the craquelin, distributing them evenly.

Tip: Push your finger through the craquelin into the dough with a sharp, precise prod, then stick the cherry into the hole you have made.

Stage 14 - 40 min.
Galette de Fougerolles
Bake for about 40 minutes.

Stage 15
Galette de Fougerolles
Leave to cool on a wire rack.
Remarks
For an interesting variation: replace half the flour in the craquelin with ground hazelnuts. This gives a more definite hazelnut flavour and a subtler crust.

If you don't have hazelnut cream, just use almond cream or frangipane instead.
Keeping
1 or 2 days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.

Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .
