Chocolate apple galette

by Paula Casimiro
This dessert is a good way to brighten your afternoon on a rainy day like today. It’s easy to do, combines the season apples and nuts and it tastes intensely like chocolate, not being, overall, a very sweet dessert. You can serve it after cooling, if you manage to wait, but I advise to serve it while still warm, accompanied by a vanilla ice cream scoop, just because all this together – apples, chocolate, nuts, vanilla, warm and cold – seems to make sense.

See you soon.

serves 8

Prep time:

Cook time:


  • 150g all-purpose flour
  • 25g pure, unsweetened, cocoa
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 85g cold unsalted butter
  • 4 tablespoons ice water
  • 2 apples, not too ripe
  • Juice of half lemon
  • 2-3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup mixture of sliced almonds, pine nuts and raisins
  • Vanilla ice cream to serve (optional)



  1. In a bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa, salt and sugar. Add the butter, cold from the fridge, cut into small pieces. Work quickly to get a sandy mixture, don’t worry if you still have some butter lumps. Add a tablespoon of ice water at a time and keep working until you get a smooth and elastic dough. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to rest for about one hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200º C. Wash the apples and remove the core. Cut into thin slices, spraying with lemon juice to prevent oxidation.
  3. Place the dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll it out in a uniform and circular shape, about 4 mm thick. Arrange the slices of apple next to each other forming a compact and circular design, leaving about 3 cm from the edge. Sprinkle the nuts and raisins mixture on top. Fold the edges inward, making small folds. Sprinkle the apple filling and dough edge with sugar.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 45 minutes, until it’s golden and crispy. You can serve it while still warm with a vanilla ice cream scoop on the side (optional).
