When making a dessert with apples you’ll want to be sure you use cooking apples. They are bigger and slightly less sweet but that makes them perfect for a shortcrust pastry galette.


Blackberry apple galette wouldn’t be complete without the maple syrup, poured over the apples. It creates a wonderfully sticky sweet sauce and creates a base for the ginger, cinnamon and other spices to stick to. This easy apple blackberry galette is so much better for the addition of maple syrup.

Apple Galette Top Tips

  • Use shop-bought pastry to make theshortcrust pastry galette quicker. Making your own pastry doesn’t take too long but it can add an extra 20 minutes and sometimes we just don’t have the time.
  • You can pick blackberries during late August/ September. They are found in bushes and are a dark purple once ripe. But just be sure to only pick the berries from waist height up and give them a good wash before you cook with them.

Apple Blackberry Galette Serving Suggestions

This blackberry apple galette can be served warm from the oven, I love the smell of freshly cooked pastry and mixed that with these autumnal flavours and you are on to a winner.

The autumn fruit galette goes perfectly with a few scoops of vanilla ice cream. Warm dessert with refreshing ice cream is one of life’s simple pleasures.

A shortcrust pastry galette can also be served with a sprinkling of icing sugar or even custard.

Substitutions and variations

You could swap the apples and blackberries in this fruit galette, for some summer berries for a Wimbledon-based dessert.

Pop some strawberries, blueberries and peaches into the pastry and bake as this recipe suggests. It makes a wonderful summer fruits galette. Serve with fresh cream.

Mulled Wine Galette – Prepare the pastry and fruit as stated in this recipe, but instead of just using your cinnamon and ginger spices, add a packet of mulled wine spices and serve with ice cream (and a warm glass of Mulled wine for the grown-ups).

Make it a savoury galette by useing fresh vegetables. You can even use leftover cooked vegetables on the galette.

Storing apple blackberry galette / Making ahead of time options

Theshortcrust pastry galette is best served warm from the oven. It can be stored in the fridge in an air-tight container for a few days. I would recommend popping it in the microwave for 30 seconds ready to serve so you can enjoy a warm blackberry apple galette.

How do I keep my galette from getting soggy?

You keep your galette from getting soggy by cooking it as soon as you’ve added the filling. Don’t let it sit around! Another tip to keep your galette from getting soggy is to not add the soggy filling.

What’s the difference between a galette and a crostata?

The difference between a galette and a crostata is that a galette is french and a crostata is Italian. They both describe the same short-crust pastry dessert with fruit.

Can galette be made ahead of time?

The galette can be made ahead of time, just make the pastry and prepare the fruit and filling. Keep them separate and then assemble and bake when ready. Enjoy warm from the oven.

What is the difference between a tart and a galette?

The difference between a tart and a galette is that a galette is a free-formed dessert whereas a tart is made in a tin to keep it’s shape. They are similar but personally, I think a blackberry apple galette is better than a tart!

Shortcrust Pastry Ingredients

  • 175 g plain flour
  • tiny pinch salt
  • 90 g unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp cold water

Galette filling

  • 2 apples (I used royal gala)
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 0.5 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 0.5 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 150 g blackberries
  • granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tablespoon apricot jam (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon water (optional)


Shortcrust Pastry

  • Place the 175g plain flour and pinch of salt into a mixing bowl and add the 90g of butter cut into cubes.
  • Rub the flour and butter together with your fingers to make what looks like bread crumbs.
  • Using a normal knife stir in the 2 tablespoons water little by little until the dough as come together.
  • Wrap the dough in cling film and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Making the apple and blackberry galette

  • Preheat the oven to 200ºC fan / 400ºF.
  • With the pastry at room temperature, roll out and place on a baking tray.
  • Core and slice the 2 apples and place in a bowl with the 2 tablespoons of maple syrup, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar, half a teaspoon of cinnamon and half a teaspoon of ground ginger. Give it a good stir.
  • Place the apple, maple syrup and spice mix over the pastry leaving 2 inches around the edge.
  • Fold the pastry boarder in the centre to make a case and add the blackberries.
  • Lightly beat the 1 egg with the 1 tablespoon of milk and brush the pastry case, sprinkle with a little granulated sugar.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes – until golden brown. After the first 10 minutes reduce temperature to 180ºC. (or cover with aluminum foil)
  • While it’s cooking, mix together the jam and water. When the galette is cooked, remove it from the oven and using a pastry brush, brush the jam mixture over the apples.
  • Serve and enjoy hot.



  • It’s fun to make the pastry by hand but you can easily make this recipe using 1 sheet of ready-made shortcrust pastry from the supermarket.
  • Best served hot with ice cream or single cream.
