Blackberry & Goats Cheese Sweet Galette

serves: 4-6


Galette Dough Ingredients

  • 1 1⁄2 cups spelt flour
  • 2 1⁄2 tablespoons white sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 115g unsalted butter, chopped into small cubes and almost at room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons ice cold water

Galette Filling Ingredients

  • 255g fresh blackberries
  • 70g Yarra Valley Cheese Fresh Goats Cheese
  • 1 small lemon, rind grated
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 egg yolk, lightly whisked
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • Honey to serve


  • In a large mixing bowl, sift the spelt flour, white sugar and salt. Use a whisk to combine well.
  • Add the chopped butter cubes and use your hands and fingers to cut it into the flour mixture. The end result will be fine wet sand-like crumbs which have darkened in colour.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of ice cold water at a time, until the dough is pliable and able to be rolled into a round ball.
  • Place the round and smooth ball of dough onto a flat surface and use a rolling pin to gently and slowly roll it down to a 2 inch thick disc. Cover with cling wrap and place into the fridge for 30 minutes so that the butter can harden again.
  • Preheat an oven to 200 degrees and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Remove the dough from the fridge and place onto a hard and flat surface. Use the rolling pin to roll the dough out to the size of a standard large plate.
  • Fill the inner center of the dough with crumbled goats cheese chunks, top with the blackberries and top with the lemon zest and thyme.
  • Use your fingers to gently lift the outer circle of dough over the filling to form a galette. Galettes are very homestyle and rustic so this doesn’t need to be perfect!
  • Brush the exposed outer dough with the egg wash and sprinkle the entire galette with the white sugar.
  • Carefully transfer the galette to the baking tray and place to bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until golden, fragrant and crunchy to touch.
  • Remove from the oven and drizzle with honey to serve.
  • Allow the galette to cool before slicing into it.
  • Consume immediately.
