Oh the joys of spring break... the travelling... the free time... all the fun and more specifically all the baking! I have spent my weekend baking, and in the upcoming days, I will share all of these wonderful little recipes with you! Cannelés are one of Charles' favorite delicacies... and they are especially hard and tedious to make. It took me about 3 weeks of constant baking last september to finally 'master' (it is a big word to use) the art of Cannelés making! It wouldn't for the boyfriend's stomach and pleasure, I may not have tried this hard. Thank god i finally managed to get the hand of it because they really are delicious! Every batch is different but always good!


  • 250ml of milk
  • 25g of butter
  • 50g of flour
  • 100g of sugar
  • 1 tbsp of rum
  • 1 egg + 1 yolk
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla essence
  1. In a pan, bring the milk and butter to a boil. 
  2. In a bowl, mix the flour and sugar. 
  3. In another bowl, beat the egg and the yolk together. 
  4. Add the egg mix to the flour and sugar and mix thoroughly. 
  5. Add the rum to the milk and butter and whisk. 
  6. Mix the milk mixture with the flour mixture and add the vanilla essence. You should get a liquid consistence. 
  7. Refrigerate for 36-48 hours. 
  8. Preheat oven at 200 degrees. 
  9. Grease the cannelés molds and pour the dough leaving a 2cm margin for the cannelés to rise. 
  10. Bake for about 55 to 65 minutes. 
  11. Let cool and enjoy!!

* For the moulds you can buy silicone or copper. I find the silicone moulds easier to bake with. 
* You want to get a caramelized look on the outside and a very soft inside.

I've never eaten these cannele, but they look scrumptious.
