Fruit Galette (Tart/Pie)

The Panasonic Oven with Steam (NN-SV30), all in one (cos it combines Microwave, Heater, Steam and Grilling functions all in one machine) is a pretty useful one! Last I did was make Sardine Samosa and now I have an old recipe that I love to make!

Galette is French for a flat, round cake. It may also refer to several savory and sweet tarts, and even a small shortbread cookie.

So what we have here is a Mixed Fruit Galette. It was a lovely Saturday and I was happy to be home and alone and have ALL the time to do whatever I wanted so I decided to bake!

Here’s the recipe I found online and modified it to be easy and simple to follow:
Ingredients:

Basic Pastry:
175g all-purpose plain flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon granulated white sugar
113g unsalted butter, cold, cut into small cubes
2 tablespoons ice waterFruit Filling:
8-9 similar sized strawberries
15 small grapes
1 kiwi
2 tablespoons granulated white sugar
1 teaspoon corn starch

Method:
1. Mix flour, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl. Cut the cold butter (must be cold) into small cubes and use a fork to press the butter together with the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.2. Add the ice water and mix until the mixture comes together to form a dough. I then used the dough to form the base of the Galette based on a aluminium disposable “pie pan” and store in freezer to keep it cool while preparing the fruits.3. Wash and cut the fruits into thick slices (halve the strawberries, thickly slice the kiwi, and the grapes should be fine without cutting). Toss the fruits with the sugar and cornstarch.

4. Go crazy. Be creative. Pile the fruits in any manner you like. Fold the pastry edges up. Brush the dough with egg white. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of sugar.

5. Switch on the Convection Mode on the Panasonic Oven and heat up to 220 degrees. Make sure you have water in it already in the bottom tray!

6. Bake in preheated oven at 200degC for 25-30 minutes.

Let’s take a look at how it looked like before it went into the oven:

I thought it looked kinda weird so what I did was to round up the edges. And in it went into the oven!
25-30 mins later:
Bon appetit~

    It was nice. I tried it and it is better than "store-bought" for sure!

    The crust was really very very good. You could make it in bulk and sell to cold storage/NTUC!
