Mini Blueberry, White Peach & Goat’s Cheese Galettes (a lower sugar recipe) + GBBO 2015

I can’t wait to try this! It looks fabulous and I bet, tastes even better.

This easy to make, light as a feather spelt pie crust dough is the perfect beginner's baking recipe. Filled with blueberries, peaches and complementing goat's cheese make it sophisticated enough for company too. Apologies for non-UK readers. I’m going to gush a bit about something you won’t have seen. Recipe below! Plus SPOILER ALERT!!

‘I’m never gonna put boundaries on myself ever again. I’m never gonna say “I can’t do it”. I’m never gonna say “maybe”. I’m never gonna say “I don’t think I can”. I can and I will.’ Nadiya Hussein’s rousing response to winning the 2015 Great British Bake Off

Over 12 million people tuned in to see Nadiya storm the GBBO final in her usual soft yet steely fashion. But the creme de la creme (or the “creme pat”, if you will) was her astonishing response. Astonishing in a good way. It was the best acceptance speech I’ve ever heard (take note Hollywood: the city, not the grumpy, silver-fox GBBO judge).
