Galette Des Rois
In France, a traditional cake is served in January, shortly after Christmas, to celebrate the Epiphany. The cake is made with an almond paste and features a porcelain piece within the cake for someone to find, whoever find it within their piece of cake is made King for the day.
This January, we made our own cake and placed a coin inside.
2 sheets of puff pastry
4 egg yolks
100 grams of sugar
100 grams of ground almonds
100 grams of butter
Mix three egg yolks with the sugar until whitened
Mix in the butter and ground almonds
Place the first sheet of puff pastry in a pie dish
Put in the almond mixture, and place a coin, then place the second sheet of puff pastry on top, making sure that the two sheets are sealed and none of the almond mixture can be seen or leaked.
Mix the final egg yolk and brush on top of the cake
Put in the oven at 200 degrees for 10 minutes, then at 180 degrees for 20 minutes.
Take out to let cool and enjoy.
