Homeblogfood & Winesweets from Provence Recipe Provençale Galette – French Recipe

Updated: May 24

If you don't have galette in your country, you can very well make them yourself.

While you cook, the children in the family can have fun making wreaths.

It really is a very festive time.

Moreover, this cake really encourages conviviality, between friends and / or colleagues.

I give you in this article the recipe that we follow to make our Provençal galette.


2 cups of wheat

4 tsp of baker’s yeast

2 tsp of milk

3 eggs

½ cup of soft butter

¼ cup of sugar

2 tsp of bleaded sugar

1 cup of candied fruits

1 tsp of orange blossom

2 tsp of sugar syrup


A robot (if you don't have a robot, your hands will do the job very well 😊)

A crown-shaped mold

A bowl

A glass


Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm milk in a glass.

Reserve 20g of butter for the mold.

Sift the flour then make a well.

Pour in the dissolved yeast, eggs, powdered sugar and orange blossom water.

Knead the dough.

Stir in the butter, cut into small pieces, continuing to knead.

Butter the crown-shaped mold.

Place the dough in the mold.

Put the bean in the dough.

Cover the dough with a cloth.

Let the dough rise in a warm atmosphere without drafts (while the dough fills the mold).

Preheat the oven to thermostat 6 (180 ° degrees).

Place the mold in the oven, once the dough is completely filled.

Coat the crown with cane sugar syrup when it comes out of the oven.

Decorate the crown with candied fruits and granulated sugars.

If you do not have cane sugar syrup in your country, I invite you to mix 2 cups of powdered sugar and 1 cup of water in a saucepan.

Stir until completely dissolved.

Water must not boil!

I wish you happy kings feasts.
