Humble Pie (apparently)

Serves smany Prep Time 20 minutes   Cook Time 35 minutes   Rated:

You can seriously use almost any fruit in season for this one, though stone fruits are somehow just perfect in my opinion. But how good is the strawberry version? (VERY!)

We are loving a bit of humble pie around here. More traditionally called a fruit galette, (not the crepe kind) but we love the name. Humble origins, humble looking in a pretty organic way and seriously, anything but humble when you serve it up with a big ole scoop of vanilla ice cream. The vanilla ice cream recipe versions on here are endless. Seriously. Pick a recipe and trust the process.

Preheat oven to fan forced 180°C.


Roll pastry out using cornflour to prevent sticking to a large round on baking paper. Place the pastry on the paper inside a pie plate, this can be quite relaxed in shape, it just needs to help you with the baking of the pie. Mound fruit into centre of pastry and sprinkle liberally with caster sugar. Fold edges of pastry up and over around the fruit to form a crust.


The pastry can be quite rough and in fact is very don't be too alarmed if it looks a little rustic! Stick back together where necessary with a few pinches as needed. Brush with a little egg wash and sprinkle with flaked almonds if you are using.


Bake for 25-35 minutes until pastry is fragrant and centre is bubbling, and fruit is well cooked, almonds golden.


Dust with icing sugar!
