Frangipane filling



To make pastry, process flour, sugar and butter in a food processor until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add egg yolk. Process until dough just comes together. Turn dough out onto a work surface and shape into a disc; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.


Meanwhile, to make frangipane filling, beat butter, sugar and vanilla in a small bowl with an electric mixer until pale and creamy. Beat in egg yolk until combined. Stir in almond meal and flour until combined.


Preheat a 7-litre air fryer to 180°C/350°F for 5 minutes.


Roll pastry between two sheets of baking paper until 3mm (1/8in) thick. Using a plate or cake pan, cut out a 25cm (10in) round from pastry; discard offcuts. Sprinkle almond meal over pastry round, then evenly spread with frangipane, leaving a 3cm (1in) border. Toss berries in cornflour to coat, shaking off excess, then scatter over frangipane. Fold pastry border up and over filling.


Taking care, use the paper as an aid to lower the galette into the air fryer basket, then cover basket tightly with foil; at 180°C/350°F, cook for 30 minutes. Remove foil. Reset the temperature to 160°C/325°F; cook for a further 15–18 minutes or until pastry is golden and frangipane is cooked through. Taking care, use the paper as an aid to remove the galette from the air fryer.


Dust galette with icing sugar and serve with ice-cream.
