I have prepared one of the most famous Breton specialities: Galettes made with buckwheat flour. This sweet version with the caramelised figs is really too much….Too much. Full stop.
GALETTES (about 6) • 1 egg • 100ml milk • 150ml water • 70g plain flour • 70g buckwheat flour • 1 pinch of salt • butter
In a large bowl mix the two flours together with 2 pinches of salt. Add some of the milk and water a bit a time. Stir well to remove any lumps. Add to the mixture a whole egg. Stir well to combine the mixture that should be fluid but not too fluid. Cover the mixture with a clingfilm and let it stand for at least one hour in the fridge. Grease a pan for crepes with some butter and put it on a high heat. Pour a large spoonful of the mixture into the middle of the pan. Tilt the pan so that the mixture coats the surface evenly. Cook for about a minute till the crepe loosen from the pan, flip it over and cook the other side till it becomes slightly brown. Continue in the same way with the rest of the mixture.
CARAMELIZED FIGS • 8/10 fresh figs • 150g granulated sugar • 50g butter • 2 tbsp water
Wash and gently wipe the figs dry then cut in half. Don't peel them. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Spread the sugar evenly into the pan and cook until the sugar is melted and it is golden brown, then leave to simmer. Add the butter stirring with a wooden spoon. Remove from the heat and add 2 tbsp of water stirring very well to keep the caramel fluid. Place the figs with the half upside up into the caramel sauce. Put back over a low heat for 10 minutes. Baste the top of the figs with the caramel, and leave to cool in the pan.
Stuff the galettes with fig jam *(recipe in my previous story) and fold into quarters. Top with the caramelized figs and drizzle with the caramel sauce. Enjoy it!
