The instruction how to make Apple and pear galette with spiced chocolate sauce

  1. Preheat oven to 200C/180C fan-forced.
  2. Cut one pastry sheet in half lengthways. Set one half aside. Cut remaining pastry half in half lengthways to form 2 long strips. Place whole pastry sheet on a flat surface. Place reserved pastry half, slightly overlapping, along 1 side of pastry sheet. Press lightly to secure. Join 2 short ends of remaining pastry strips together, slightly overlapping. Press to secure. Place along 1 long side of pastry, slightly overlapping. Press to secure. Trim overhanging end of pastry. (You should now have a rectangle of pastry that measures approximately 30cm x 35cm).
  3. Press pastry sheet into an 18cm (base) flameproof frying pan to cover base and side, allowing any excess pastry to overhang. Refrigerate until required.
  4. Place almonds, hazelnuts and caster sugar in a food processor. Process until finely ground. Transfer to a medium bowl. Stir in flour, egg, vanilla and u00be of the butter.
  5. Spread the nut mixture over base of pastry. Thinly slice apple and pear. Using the picture as a guide, arrange fruit on top. Fold any excess pastry back over the edges of pan to form a border. Brush fruit with remaining butter. Sprinkle with extra caster sugar. Bake for 45 minutes or until fruit is tender and pastry is golden and crisp.
  6. Meanwhile, make Spiced Chocolate Sauce. Place cream, brown sugar, mixed spice and ginger in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, whisking occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes or until mixture just begins to simmer. Remove from heat. Add chocolate. Whisk for 1 to 2 minutes or until chocolate is melted and smooth.
