For the pastry

  • 1 cup all purpose flour 140g
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 5 tablespoon mascarpone
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ lemon zest (ie from ½ lemon)
  • 3 tablespoon cold water

For the filling

  • 1 ¾ cups blueberries 245g, fresh or frozen
  • ½ lemon zest (ie from ½ lemon)
  • ½ lemon juice (ie from ½ lemon)
  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoon sugar

To finish

  • 1 egg for eggwash (won't use all)
  • 1 teaspoon cane sugar (or other coarse sugar)


To make the pastry

  • Put the flour, salt and butter in a food processor and pulse until it forms a breadcrumb-like texture. Add the mascarpone, lemon juice, zest and water and pulse until it comes together as a ball. You can also make by hand by rubbing the butter into the flour then mixing in other ingredients.
  • Remove the dough from the food processor, bring it together in a ball then wrap in plastic wrap/cling film. Chill ideally for at least 30 minutes. Note you can make it a day or two ahead.

To make the galette

  • Preheat oven to 400F/200C.
  • Toss the blueberries with the lemon zest and juice, cornstarch and sugar.
  • Roll out the pastry into roughly a circle approx 12in/30cm diameter. Transfer the pastry to a baking sheet/tray. Put the blueberries in the middle and spread out into an even layer leaving around 1 ½ in/ 6cm around the edge.
  • Fold in the pastry edge, making pleats as you go round at even intervals, so the pastry partially covers the blueberries. Seal up any cracks that may form.
  • Brush the pastry that you can see from the top with egg then sprinkle over the sugar.
  • Bake the galette for around 25 minutes until the pastry is crisp and golden (bake a little longer if it isn't). Serve warm or room temp.
