So let me tell you how this magical dish was created..THE STORY isn't so magical but the result absolutely was! So i had a ripe pineapple in my house, and i've been dreaming of making a galette and i was craving a little British Bakewell tart (which has frangipane in it) SO FAST FORWARD past the sparks flying in my mind, dreaming about the possible combinations...💡💡💡💡💡..pineapple frangipani galette my friends!!!
P.S. one thing i will say is because i tried to make this dish gluten free the pastry is a little delicate compared to usual pastry, you could use a normal pastry or spelt flour which works great :)

🌿 T H E M A G I C
preheat your oven to 375F
Add the flours, sugar and butter to a bowl and crumb together (which basically means rub the flour and butter together to almost form like a sandy texture, so theres no large lumps of butter left). Pour the milk in tbsp at a time and Bring together with your hands to form a ball, try 3 tbsp first and if its still a little dry and doesn't come together add the extra tbsp. Place the dough in the fridge for now.
Add all the frangipane ingredients in a small bowl and mix together
Slice your pineapple into think slices and cut around the core, cut into about 3 pieces per slice :) or whatever shape ya feel.
TIME TO ASSEMBLEEEE! Using a cast iron skillet ( or another pan you have at home) begin to press the pastry out, its a little delicate so be careful, but the good thing about this pastry is that you can patchwork it!
Layer the frangipane first, leave about a 2 inch border, then layer the pineapples on-top, layer then tight overlapping each other and sprinkle some coconut sugar on top
lastly, using a blunt knife to help you lift the pastry, gently fold the edges towards the centre, cuddling the filling tightly. Brush the pastry with some melted butter.
Place in the oven and cook for around 30 minutes, till the crust has browned and the fruit is sizzling and juicy!
Take out of the oven and let it rest for a couple minutes before you cut it, i recommend you serve with some cream!
♡ DON'T forget to say a prayer of gratitude, and serve with joy!
