Today, 6th January is Epiphany. In France (my home country), it is traditionally celebrated by eating a “Galette des Rois”. It’s a puff pastry cake, filled with an almond paste, made of butter, eggs, sugar, ground almond and a little bit of flour. Traditionally, there was a hidden “fève” (big dried bean) in it. The one who finds the bean is the king or the queen. These days, the “fève” is usually made of ceramics or plastic.
As I live in Germany and can’t buy it here, I have to make my own if I want one. Here’s mine from today, just out of the oven. Can’t wait to dig in!
