Servings 2


For the pastry

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter cut into small pieces, 1 stick
  • 2 tablespoons to 4ice water

For the plum filling

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour plus more for dusting
  • 2 tablespoon whole raw almonds toasted
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 3-4 cm plums halved, pitted, and sliced 1/2thick (keep sliced halves together)
  • 1 tablespoon thickened cream for brushing


  • Pulse flour, salt, and sugar in a food processor (or whisk together by hand in a bowl). Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal, with some larger pieces remaining. Drizzle 2 tablespoons water over mixture. Pulse (or mix with a fork) until mixture just begins to hold together. If dough is too dry, add 2 tablespoons more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and pulse (or mix with a fork).
  • Gather dough into a ball, wrap loosely in plastic wrap, and press each into a disk using a rolling pin. Refrigerate until firm, well wrapped in plastic, 1 hour or up to 1 day.
  • Preheat oven to 180 C. On a lightly floured piece of grease proof paper, roll out dough into an approximate 20cm oval, around 1/2 cm thick. Transfer dough (on paper) to a baking sheet or tray.
  • Pulse almonds, 3 tablespoons sugar, and the flour in a food processor until ground to a coarse meal. Sprinkle almond mixture over dough. With a spatula, transfer plum slices to dough, spacing close together and leaving a 5cm border; press lightly to fan out. Fold edge of dough over fruit. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
  • Brush dough with cream; sprinkle galette evenly with remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar. Bake until crust is deep golden, and plums are juicy and bubbling, about 40 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely.
