WHAT IS A GALETTE

A french term for flat cake is usually made in free form and does not need a pie dish. The fillings are made of fruits which can vary from apples, berries, peaches, or any fruit you may want to try. The edges are folded on top of the fruits which gives its rustic look.

WHICH APPLE TO USE

Good thing this recipe is versatile which means you can use a variety of apples, from gala, braeburn, granny smith, and Fuji. I decided to use fuji apples because just like gala they are sweet and crispy although fuji is juicier.

INGREDIENTS AND SUBSTITUTIONS

Flour – this recipe uses unbleached all-purpose flour. You can substitute a flour of your choice that is proven to work with cookies.

Brown Sugar –  this recipe uses natural granulated brown sugar and white sugar will also work

Vegan Butter – no need to melt the butter when adding in the dough, just remove it from the fridge, rest for a few minutes and test with your finger if it’s soft enough to create a dimple.

Dairy-free Milk – I use unsweetened oat milk, but you can use any unsweetened nondairy milk or water for this recipe.

Fuji Apples – you can also use gala or granny smith apples. I use just about 2 pieces of it.

Cinnamon – not all Cinnamon are created equal be sure to use ceylon cinnamon as it is the sweet version of cinnamon and in powder form.

Nutmeg – it is optional, you can also use allspice or pumpkin spice in your galette recipe.

This easy vegan apple galette will satisfy your afternoon snack cravings. You can add a vegan vanilla ice cream too and you can even enjoy it as a breakfast.

The recipe is very straightforward and just needs a few kneading to incorporate all the ingredients in the dough. While for the fillings just thinly slice the apples about or about 0.2 to 0.3 cm add the spices. You may peel the skin or include it according to your preference.
