Gooseberry Galette

 Gooseberry Galette Recipe


A rustic French style tart packed with juicy, tangy gooseberries. No case needed! Just knock up this simple pastry and fill with delicious fruits.

Add raspberries, blackberries, apples or plums – all delicious!


Serves 6

Cooking time: 7 minutes plus 5 minutes prep



For the pastry:

200g plain flour

150g cold butter, diced

1 tbsp golden caster sugar

Pinch of salt

Cold water


For the almond filling

80g ground almonds

80g plain flour

50g golden caster sugar


For the fruit filling:

350g gooseberries

75g golden caster sugar

15g butter, diced into small pieces

30g pecans, chopped (optional)


1 egg, beaten



  1. Combine the flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add the diced butter, it must be cold, to the bowl and using your fingertips to gradually rub the butter into the flour. Alternatively use a food processor until the mix resembles breadcrumbs. Sprinkle a little cold water and work into the dough until you can form a ball with your hands. Flatten a little and wrap into cling film and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/Gas Mark 6.
  3. Roll the dough on a lightly floured surface into a large thin round approximately 30cm wide.
  4. Mix together the almonds, sugar and flour and scatter over the pastry leaving about 5cm clear around the edge.
  5. Arrange the gooseberries over the centre.
  6. Fold the edges of the pastry up over the fruit, crimping them as you go – no need to be too neat! Brush the edges with the beaten egg wash and sprinkle the gooseberries with the remaining sugar, pecans and diced butter.
  7. Bake for 45 minutes or until the pastry is crisp and golden and the fruit bubbling. Leave to cool a little before tucking in.
