When I was given some gooseberries from my mother, my first thought was crumble – the weather had taken a turn for the worse and it was cold and wet. However, by the time I got around to actually using them, the weather had improved. Although a gooseberry fool or other such dessert might have been more appropriate, I had “baked gooseberry something” on my mind. A sudden flash of inspiration and gooseberry galette it was – both baked and summery.
These light and fluffy little red gooseberry cakes hold a tart surprise inside for those not in the know. They’re simple to make and have no fussy icing, which makes them easily portable. Perfect treats for summer parties and picnics.
