It’s harvest time! Yep, and I’m happy to see tons of plums and apples hanging from the branches by the hundreds. This year the yield is particularly good (joy!). My father was kind enough to pick a whole basket of plums (or “Zwetschgen” as they say in Bavaria) for me and I headed straight for the kitchen. It should be an uncomplicated, delicious and quick dish become for all lovers of vegan cuisine. And that’s it! You will love it, I promise.
Plum galette – what is that supposed to be?
Until a few hours ago, I didn’t know what that was either. However, that is exactly what I love the most. Uncomplicated and damn tasty. The base is quickly made with fine spelt flour, margarine, powdered sugar, ground almonds, a flaxseed egg and a pinch of salt. Mix, knead and refrigerate. In the meantime, wash, pit and halve the plums. A fine, almost caramel note is provided by the brown sugar, which is mixed with starch and spread on the bottom of the galette. Another pinch of cinnamon and the sweet seduction is perfect!
“Zwetschgen Galette” as the vegan Bavarian would say
Honestly, baking is so much fun with this Recipe so really fun. Simply fold in the edges of the galette and start baking. This saves time and each galette looks a little different and gets a personal touch. The beauty is then topped with plenty of almond flakes and powdered sugar. If you want it even richer, I recommend adding a few scoops of vegan vanilla ice cream or Coconut cream to it. Simply Yummy!
You don’t have any plums at home? No problem, incredibly many other fruits and berries are suitable as a filling:
- Berries of all kinds, currants, blackberries, strawberries, etc..
- Mirabelle plums
