A New Year is not a New Year without a little Dessert

Namely, the traditional Galette de Roi and some Crème Brûlée.

Galette de Roi or The King’s Cake

Purchased at Au Pain Doré for a whopping $23!

(We got the super sized one)

Still, it was delicious.

If you have never had a Galette de Roi, they are usually only available at the start of the year.

Here it is ready to go into the oven to be warmed and toasted.

And YUM!

The little bird there is the equivalent of a hidden bean inside the cake.

Whoever gets the bean, is declared King.

BF got it this year. 🙂 I was Queen of Cakes last year.

Crème Brûlée or Burnt Cream

Done in the oven, because we don’t have the torch.

BF the Chef was disappointed by its lack of burnt-ness, how warm it was, and the texture.

….but I greedily ate as much as my spoon could crack and scoop up.

I found it delicious!

And the New Year begins beautifully for my belly 😀
