Recette Galette des Rois PRO-MIX Gardening

The new year has begun, which means it’ll soon be Epiphany, with its crown-shaped cake that could make you king for one day. Scented with orange blossom, it is decorated with candied fruit, pearlized sugar and, why not, a few basil leaves. 


  • 1 bean
  • 300 g flour
  • 75 g sugar
  • 75 g butter at room temperature
  • 3 eggs
  • Salt
  • 1 pouch of baker’s yeast
  • Orange or lemon zest 
  • 2 tbsp. orange blossom water
  • 200 g candied fruit
  • Apricot jam
  • 3 tbsp. pearlized sugar
  • A few basil leaves to taste


This recipe can be made with a bread maker or food processor, or by hand. 

  1. In a bowl, combine  two whipped eggs with the butter, orange blossom water, orange zest, sugar and a pinch of salt, and then mix. 
  2. Add the flour and yeast, and knead for about 10 minutes.
  3. Let the dough rise at room temperature, covered with a cloth, for 60 minutes.
  4. Once the dough has risen, knead it by hand to remove the air and make a long roll which you’ll place in your savarin mould. Don’t forget to add your bean! 
  5. Let the dough rise in the mould for 45 to 60 minutes, and then pre-heat the oven to 350 °F.
  6. Whip a whole egg with a pinch of salt and brush the cake. 
  7. Put in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 °F.
  8. Take the cake out of the oven, coat with apricot jam (put it in the microwave oven for 20 seconds with a little water so it’s easier to apply) and decorate with candied fruit pieces, pearlized sugar and a few basil leaves.
