Puff pastry and frangipane [FRAN-juh-payn] — a velvety almond cream — gives this traditional cake a delicious richness and texture.


Ingredients
Preparation
  1. Prepare frangipane by combining almonds, butter, sugar, flour, almond extract and rum in a bowl. Add one whole egg and one egg white (reserve second yolk for brushing the surface). Beat mixture until a creamy paste forms. Set aside.
  2. Puff pastry comes in 2 pieces. Roll out each piece to make 2 round the size of a pie plate. Place one round on parchment-lined Sheet Pan. Spread with the frangipane, leaving a 34” border around the edge. Place bean or small figurine in filling.
  3. Using a basting brush, brush the edge with water. Lay the second pastry round on top and press edges together to seal.
  4. Brush top with remaining egg yolk. Use a sharp knife to make a pattern on the surface.
  5. Refrigerate galette for 30 minutes while preheating oven to 400° F (205° C).
  6. Bake for 20–25 minutes, until puffed and golden brown.
Tips

*King’s Cake Tradition: King’s cake or Epiphany cake is a celebratory treat in many cultures. In France, the smallest child decides who gets each slice, and the lucky one whose slice contains a trinket baked inside (a bean or small figurine) gets to be queen or king for the day. Enjoy creating this charming tradition for your little ones.
