Nectarine and Apple Galette

This nectarine galette is so easy to make. It can be made with store brought pastry or homemade. I found this recipe for a sweet-tart pastry, made with vinegar and sour cream. It is quite an easy pastry to make by hand. Use whatever fruit you like or whatever is in season.

Servings 8 serves


  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 250 grams plain flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 125 grams unsalted butter, chopped
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 3 medium nectarines, skin on, sliced, or any type of fruit you like


  • Pastry
  • For the pastry, combine vinegar and a quarter cup of iced water in a jug. Place the flour in a large bowl with sugar, vanilla bean paste, and a pinch of salt flakes.
    Add butter and toss to coat, then rub into the flour mixture, leaving some larger pieces ( this will make the pastry nice and flaky)
    Stir in the sour cream, then gradually add the vinegar mixture, bringing the dough together with your hands ( don't add extra water- the dough will be quite shaggy, but will come together once chilled). Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface and gently knead.
    Wrap in glad wrap and chill for at least 2 hours before using.
  • Take the chilled pastry out and roll into a rectangle or round shape. Leave a border to fold the pastry over once the fruit is arranged on the pastry case. Fold the pastry over the fruit. Sprinkle with some demarera sugar.
    Bake in a preheated oven at 200C for 30 minutes or until a nice golden colour.
    Allow cooling for 5 minutes on the tray. Cut into 8 pieces and serve with vanilla ice cream.


They say you should always add just a little bit of vinegar in a pie crust helps to soften gluten in the flour so it doesn’t get too tough and chewy.
