Cannelés bordelais


Cannelé is a French pastry from Bordeaux (in southwestern France).

I’ve never baked, nor eaten any cannelé before.

I am so happy, they turned out perfectly!

They are cute! I was so surprised how they have a crispy and caramelized shell. And they are so sweet, with a filling fragrant with vanilla and rum.

It’s a magical pastry!

Since this morning, I am addicted to cannelé!

Cannelés de Bordeaux

The baking temperature is certainly the biggest success factor.

Serving : 25 small cannelés  Preparation time : 15 minutes   Rest time : 24 hours  Total time : 25 hours and 26 minutes (+ 1 hour and 11 minutes if a second batch)

You need a silicone cannelé mold to make this recipe.

Ingredients :

  • 500 ml milk
  • 25 gram butter
  • 2 eggs + 2 eggs yolk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 100 gram plain flour
  • 200 gram granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rum

Directions :

  1. In a small saucepan warm the milk, vanilla and butter on medium heat until the butter melt. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  2. Combine the flour and sugar in a mixing bowl.
  3. In a small bowl whip the eggs with a fork and pour on top of the flour mixture.
  4. Pour the warm milk on top and stir all the ingredients together until the batter is smooth.
  5. When the batter is cold, add rum.
  6. Let the batter cool in the refrigerator, covered for 24 hours.
  7. Remove batter from the refrigerator at least 1 hour before baking it.
  8. Pre-heat oven to 450 degree F. (240 degree C.). You will need a baking sheet to support the silicone mold when it’s filled with batter. Fill it to 1/4 from the top. Bake for 11 minutes.
  9. Reduce the oven to 350 degree F. (180 degree C.). Bake for 1 hour.
  10.  Let your cannelés rest in the mold for about 5 minutes before you take them out.
  11. Place the mold upside down on a wire cooling rack. Cannelés usually slide right out of their molds.
  12. Let cool at room temperature. Cannelés must be eaten on the day they are baked.

      Thanks Angie 🙂 It’s weird! I do not know why?!

  5. Looks like they turned out just perfectly! I have always wanted to bake them but don’t have the molds. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever tasted one…I have to try one next time I’m in a pastry shop!
