How To Make Mixed Berry Galette with Buttermilk Cornmeal Crust

This mixed berry galette makes a great summer dessert. It comes with a golden cornmeal crust filled with berries tossed with sugar and lemon juice.

Preparation: 1 hour 20 minutes
Cooking: 28 minutes
Chill Time: 1 hour
Total: 2 hours 48 minutes



For Cornmeal Crust:

  • cupsall purpose flour,spoon & leveled
  • ¼cupcornmeal
  • ¼cupgranulated sugar
  • ¼tspsalt
  • ½cupcold unsalted butter,(1 stick), cubed
  • ¼cupcold buttermilk

For Filling:

  • 4cupsmixed berries,such as blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries
  • 1cupraspberries
  • 1cupblackberries
  • 3tbspgranulated sugar
  • 1tbspcornstarch
  • 1tbspfresh lemon juice
  • 1large egg,beaten with 1 tbsp milk
  • coarse sugar,for sprinkling



  1.  Whisk the flour, cornmeal, sugar, and salt together in a medium bowl. Using a pastry cutter or 2 forks, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse pea-sized crumbs.

  2. Add the buttermilk and stir until the flour is moistened. Add 1 more tablespoon of buttermilk if the dough seems dry.

  3. Gently knead the dough a few times on a lightly floured work surface until it all comes together.

  4. Shape the dough into a ball and flatten it into a thick disk. Wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate it for at least 1 hour and up to 3 days (or freeze up to 3 months).


  1. Mix the berries, sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice together in a large bowl. Cover tightly and let sit until the dough is ready.

To Bake:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.

  2. On a lightly floured work surface, roll the dough into a 12-inch circle (or any shape). Trim the rim of the circle to make a clean cut if desired. Transfer dough to the prepared baking sheet.

  3. Spoon the berries (not the juices) into the center of the dough, leaving a 2 to 3-inch border all around.

  4. Gently fold the edges of the dough over the fruit, overlapping the dough as necessary. Press gently to seal the edges.

  5. Brush the edges with egg wash and sprinkle with coarse sugar.

  6. Bake for about 25 to 28 minutes until the filling is bubbly and the crust is golden brown.

  7. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
