  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup iced water

Method:

1. To make the pastry: in a food processor, pulse the flour, sugar and chilled butter until combined. Add the apple cider vinegar, iced water and vanilla and pulse until the dough comes together. Roll dough into a ball, flatten into a disc, cover with glad wrap and pop into the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.

3. Punch dough out and roll into a round approx 30cm wide. Pour over almond meal, leaving a 5cm border around the sides. Top the almond meal with plums and scrunch excess pastry to form a galette shape. Brush with egg wash, sprinkle with raw sugar and pop galette into the Baking oven to bake for 30-40 minutes until golden.

4. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

Storage: galette will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
