The thing that makes it for me is the frangipane. Hope you like it as much as me.

This tart is a variation on gallette des rois (king cake), the French cake served in January for Epiphany, with a bean or charm baked inside. Basically, this frangipane is a mixture of almond cream and custard. In this recipe, we use the classic ratio of 1/3 pastry cream and 2/3 almond cream. The result is remarkable and if you try this recipe, you may well find it difficult to wait for January 6th to make it again!
This is a classic French 'Galette des Rois' tart that's usually made on January 6th to celebrate the religious holiday of the three kings. The filling is usually made with eggs, butter and ground almonds but I've tweaked it to include raspberries. It's delicious served with apple compote.
This cake is made with almonds and chocolate and it it is so good!! It is also very easy to make. My kids love it. In France, they hide a bean inside the frangipane and serve it on the day of the Epiphany in January.
The French celebrate the Epiphany every year by eating this delicious frangipane tart - they add a charm for luck but it tastes just as good without one! To speed up the process, I buy ready made puff pastry sheets. Bon appetit!

This French frangipane tart is traditional fare for celebrating Epiphany, the day when the three kings visited the baby Jesus (6th January). As part of the tradition, a bean or small ceramic charm ('feve' meaning favour) is baked right into the puff pastry tart, and the lucky finder of the feve is king (or queen!) for the day.
