Galette des rois or brioche des rois?
In the south of France, for Epiphany, the traditional dessert is not a galette des rois but a brioche with candied fruits called the gâteau des rois. The custom of the bean is also respected and it slips into the dough when shaping. This king cake is made of a brioche dough flavored with orange blossom, in the shape of a crown, with pieces of candied fruit on top and pearl sugar. So, will it be galette or gâteau des rois for you?
