You knew French 3 Kings’ cake, la galette des rois . Here it’s the galette des… noix. Noix are nuts. It went a little crazy.
It was going to look like that. Something like this :
But it would be filled with a classic crème d’amande. It became that :
It’s made like a crème d’amande but…
It’s a crème with two nuts, cashew nuts and a few walnuts. Both are infinitely cheaper than almonds, and just as good.
Then… a mistake : not waiting enough to chill the filling. Bref, the crème was runny, no way to properly seal the pie.
Then… oops, the fève (token) is not inside : forgot it !
Bref, that was too late.
Then… the pie burst in the oven.
Bref, some filling leaked.
Then… the runaway filling fell in the bottom of the oven, burnt and made tons of smoke, the cooking sheet started burning.
Bref, the whole city of Osaka was totally burnt.
Then… the pie was not burnt at all.
Bref, the monster survived the tragedy and came to scare guests on the table.
Then…1/3 of the pie wedges had no filling ! And no king, no queen, no quiing, this year.
Bref, we are all losers (yes, everybody picked one of the damned wedges).
Then… we’ve eaten the good wedges after that.
Bref, we’ll be super-fatty losers.
Besides, for 2/3 of it : it’s perfect. Great fun, great dessert.
