recette galette des rois

Galette des Rois with almond cream

Dear foodies,

 

Avant de vous dévoiler ma recette de la Galette des Rois, retour sur la création de ce dessert 😉

Traditionally, we taste the Kings Cake on the day of Epiphany, a Christian festival that celebrates the Messiah receiving the visit of the three Magi.

But where does this tradition of the Galette des Rois come from? 

We have to go back to the Saturnalia (Roman festivals) during which the Romans designated a slave "King of the Day". During this day, the slave had the power to grant all his wishes before becoming a slave again.

In France, there are different types of Galettes. In 3/4 of France, La Galette des Rois is made with puff pastry and filled with frangipane (mixture of pastry cream and almond cream). In the West of France, the Galette des Rois is a brioche with sugar or candied fruit. In France-Comté, this dessert is made with choux pastry.

Which one do you prefer?

 

Today, we are going to prepare a Galette des Rois made with puff pastry and frangipane.

 

For 6 servings, you need:

.puff pastry (find the recipe HERE)

pate feuilletee rapide et facile

.pastry cream: use this recipe with 50g milk, 10g egg yolk, 15g sugar, 5g cornflour.

Bonne journée mes citrons.


Candied Cédrat

In our garden, we are lucky to have Citrons. But I confess that I had never tried before
It's done, and I'm sharing the recipe here!
1/ Clean and cut into thick strips (1cm). Keep the bark and the albedo (white skin). Set aside the pulp (remove the pips).
 
2/ Put the cédrats in a large volume of cold water and bring to a simmer for 30 minutes. Blanching them will help remove some of their bitterness.
Drain and weigh the citrons.
 
3/ In another saucepan, put the same weight in sugar, water and citrons (the citrons will be added after boiling). Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 1½ hours.
 
4/ Allow to cool then bring back to a simmer for about fifteen minutes.
 
5/ Arrange the bark you need on a grid and let them dry overnight. Store the rest in a jar with the syrup, in the fridge.
