Peach Cardamom Galette

Lately, all I can think about is cake and baking.  It occupies so many of my daily thoughts.  If I broke down the waking hours in a typical weekday, it would look like this: 50% human rights thoughts; 30% cakes/cookies/baking; 20% other/Ethan/family/travel.  I blame Winter and hibernation.

One of my favorite things to bake are these free-form galettes filled with whatever fruit I have at hand.  It may not look pretty now, but after 30-40 minutes in the oven, it comes out, crust a golden brown, bubbling, oozing the alchemy of sugar and fruit juices.  Incredible.  

Cardamom peach is a new favorite.


  1. That looks so good! Cardamom is such an underrated spice. I hear you on the winter baking. A couple of weeks ago I baked three days in a row: muffins, scones, cookies. Repeat.

  2. Yes to winter baking and cardamom. I've got a cardamom cake I want to try next.

  3. this sounds absolutely AMAZING. trying asap.
