Double Blackberry Chocolate Galette – Autumn is Here – We Should Cocoa

Double Blackberry Chocolate Galette

When Kate announced that blackberries were to be the special ingredient for this month’s We Should Cocoa, I knew exactly what I wanted to make. Ever since my first rustic gooseberry galette earlier in the year, I was dying to try one with blackberries. But it wasn’t going to be any old galette, it was a double blackberry chocolate galette.

So far so good. But how to get the chocolate part in? At first I thought I’d make a white chocolate version of the pastry as I did with this rhubarb and almond cream pasty pie, but then I remembered the chocolate blackberry jam I made last year. Woohoo, easy peasy. A case of crisp flaky pastry flavoured with cinnamon, spread with chocolate blackberry jam and then filled with fresh foraged blackberries just had to be good – and it was.

Blackberry Galette in the Making

Blackberries are one of Autumn’s delights, but picking them was a harder job than I was expecting. We had a solid week of rain here in Cornwall and this had a rather detrimental effect on our lovely brambles. Most of the fruit was mouldy or spoiled in some way. However, with a bit of diligence along with the usual scratches and stained hands, I managed to pick a good punnet full.

The double blackberry chocolate galette was everything I was hoping for. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this pastry recipe is the best ever; its easy to handle and it produces a beautifully flaky buttery crust. The chocolate blackberry jam added depth of flavour and sweetness and the blackberries gave their distinctive late summer essence.

If you don’t have any chocolate blackberry jam to hand and I can quite see why you wouldn’t, just use regular blackberry jam instead.

  • We Should Cocoa BadgeThis double blackberry chocolate galette is my #WeShouldCocoa entry for September. Kate at The Veg Space is guest hosting and has chosen blackberries
  • I’m also joining in with the Great British Blackberry Recipe Round Up with Janice at Farmersgirl Kitchen and Karen at Lavender and Lovage.
  • My blackberry galette also goes to the Pastry Challenge. This is hosted alternately over at United Cakedom and Jen’s Food. I’ve only entered once before and submitted a galette then, so I hope Lisa and Jen don’t mind.
  • It’s purple and blues over at the Vegetable Palette at A2K – A Seasonal Veg Table, so this rustic French blackberry tart fits in very nicely.

    The pastry looks absolutely delicious and I love blackberries. Foraging for blackberries is such a British past time. I’ve loved teaching our children which ones to pick and those to leave for the birds. This Galette is gorgeous. Sammie

      Thanks Sammie. This pastry works so well for me. I used to have dreadful problems. This has consistently turned out a beautiful flaky pastry that goes particularly well with tarts and pies – touches wood! Glad you are passing on such an important tradition to your children as brambling 🙂

    This looks very delicious but I wish we had blackberries here! They can be found but they’re very very expensive. I think that this would pair well with some vanilla ice cream

      No blackberries? Use another fruit Diana. This tart would work well with lots of fruit. I shall be working my way through them all, so can verify that at some future date 😉

    I’ve never made a galette before but this looks lovely. No brambles yet in Scotland – still green and hard, but I have some in the freezer from last year.

      I do tend to think of brambles as September fruit Claire, but ours have been out for a while – still plenty of hard green ones though.

    Choclette! You always bake such amazing sounding desserts – this blackberry galette is to die for! I totally get what you mean about the blackberries – I battled it out with them earlier this week. They’re delicious, but those bushes sure make you work for it!

      Ah thank you Sarah. I have a terrible sweet tooth and like my cakes and desserts. Blackberries certainly like to give as good as they get. What did you make with yours?

    Your galette looks delish Choclette. It seems very simple to make and wonderful with blackberries. There are so many in the fields now and it would be a shame not to pick them.
    Have a good week x

      Go pick them Alida, it would be a shame indeed as it will be another whole year before we see them again. This tart is really simple. I’ve made it slightly more complicated by adding jam 😉

    I too have never tried a galette and your right it looks super easy! Must give making one a go! Our usual blackberry bushes that we pick from haven’t been very good this year, but I do love fresh blackberries!! I must try to make something with them and chocolate for this month’s We Should Cocoa!! Thank you for sharing yours in this month’s pastry challenge!

      Thanks Jacqui. Pastry has always been a bit of an issue for me, but since I discovered galettes there’s been no stopping me. The chocolate blackberry jam is a fun concept, but also delicious.
