Okay, I’ve finally managed to make my galette des rois 2016, phew !! And yes, I have set the time, but not easy to precisely find the time… But I assure you, I still ate out several times this year ! And yes, those of the baker is not bad at all.
I had this idea of mini galettes des rois with lemon zest when I saw the recipe of Celine, on his blog. Then, I did not put citron, but the idea of putting a citrus fruit that I liked.

For this recipe, I have made a frangipane-based classic almond powder complete and I added the zest of one organic lemon, not treated. Frankly, I found it absolutely delightful because it brings a real plus to the frangipane, making it more mild to the taste. In fact, I have to say, we ate half of the cakes to 2, in a single time. The rest will be for tonight or tomorrow morning… ��

And now, suddenly, those who have seen my photo this morning on Instagram will be able to see the result. I never thought I would be able to write and publish the recipe today… ��
