    • Preparation time: 15 minutes, plus chilling and cooling
    • Cooking time: 35 minutes
    • Total time: 50 minutes, plus chilling and cooling

    Serves: 8

    Ingredients

    450g essential Waitrose blackberries
    1 tsp cornflour
    3-5 tbsp caster sugar, plus 1 tbsp extra for scattering
    1 tbsp lemon juice
    1 tsp vanilla bean paste
    1 essential Waitrose egg, beaten, for glazing
    3 tbsp essential Waitrose soured cream

    FOR THE PASTRY
    75g ground almonds
    150g essential Waitrose plain flour, plus extra for dusting
    ½ tsp ground cinnamon
    2 tbsp caster sugar
    110g essential Waitrose unsalted butter, chilled and cubed

    Method

    1. For the pastry, whizz the almonds, flour, cinnamon, sugar and a pinch of salt in a food processor, until combined. Pulse in the butter until it resembles breadcrumbs. Whizz in 2 tbsp iced water until it comes together into a ball. Tip onto the work surface, shape into a disc with floured hands and wrap in cling fi lm. Chill for 1 hour.

    2. Preheat the oven to 180˚C, gas mark 4; put a large flat baking sheet into the oven to heat up. Toss the blackberries with the cornflour, sugar, lemon juice, ½ tsp vanilla bean paste and a pinch of salt (add more sugar to taste, if liked).

    3. Roll the pastry out between 2 sheets of baking parchment to a 30cm circle, 0.3cm thick. Lift off the top sheet and pile the fruit in the middle of the pastry, leaving a 5cm border. Bring the pastry edges up around the fruit, leaving a gap in the middle. Brush the pastry rim with egg and scatter over the 1 tbsp sugar.

    4. Slide the galette, on its parchment, onto the hot baking sheet. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the pastry is golden and the fruit is jammy. Take out of the oven and cool for 5 minutes. Mix the cream and remaining ½ tsp vanilla, and dollop over to serve.
