This is a French term for, usually, a flat, round, flaky pastry, often made of pie crust, but baked without a pie pan. It can be savory or sweet – and this one is definitely sweet! This galette recipe includes loquats, which…

      “A party without cake is just a meeting” -Julia Childs The wisdom of Julia Childs – so true though! Let’s talk about mousse and Neapolitan for a second. Mousse is a French dessert that is sooo light and airy, while Neapolitan is originally an Italian ice cream of three different flavors – usually chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla. So basically, this cake combines the awesomeness of both of those things, and mixes it up a bit. You get a cake that is so light it almost doesn’t feel like you’re eating cake – according to my taste testers who loved this…
