Galette du Roi

Galette du Roi

Traditionally served all the month of January in France, this Galette du Roi or Cake of Kings has a surprise “favor” inside and whoever gets the favor is crowned king or queen for the day!  When my kids were little I would make this light and not too sweet treat all year round and put enough favors inside so that we had a veritable royal family.  While I made the cake, I’d send the children off to make and color their own crowns; that way I could also hide the favors without them watching.  The favors in France are tiny porcelain figurines but a dried bean works just as well!
