I’m super excited to share this post with you today!
Earlier this week, I posted this picture on my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram:
You could guess what I was going to make with those two ingredients. I loved the ideas you guys had but no one guessed it!
So here it is. I made Canelés de Bordeaux!
I’m pretty stoked with the result because to me, Canelés de Bordeaux are some pretty hard things to make. Let me correct that: I always thought it was hard to make them. Oh well, it’s not something you make in an hour either. Making the dough is the easiest part, baking them is a bit more difficult. They take a lot of time in the oven and to get that perfect thin caramel shell isn’t a walk in the park at all. But with a little bit of patience and a lot of love for the pastry, you’ll do just fine 😀
Canelés de Bordeaux come from Bordeaux in France. The history of this iconic pastry is a bit of a mystery because no one really knows who created them or when. But we do know the Canelés de Bordeaux have been with us for many many years!
I absolutely LOVE Canelés de Bordeaux! The boyfriend thinks they’re too sweet but can a pastry ever be too sweet? Naaaaah!
The recipe I used was ment for 10 Canelés de Bordeaux…
I filled my 20 pieces mold three times! THREE! 😮 So I guess I have a little mold and the other a bigger one? :p I think I should have added a little more rhum to it because of the amount of Canelés I was able to make with the recipe.
Look how perfectly moist they are in the middle 🙂
What we need for +- 50 pieces:
- 2 eggs
- 2 egg yolks
- 8 spoons rhum (I’ve calculated a bit extra because of the amount of Canelés)
- 120 g all-purpose flour
- 25 g butter
- 200 g powder sugar
- 50 cl milk
- 2 vanilla-pods
- Canelés de Bordeaux mold
- Preheat the oven at 200 degrees centigrade.
- Mix together the flour, sugar, eggs and egg yolks.
- Heat the milk with the butter and the split vanilla-pods.
Scrape out the vanilla.
- Mix the heated vanilla-milk-mixture with the batter.
- Add the rhum.
- Butter your mold and sprinkle them with sugar.
- Bake the Canelés de Bordeaux for 10 minutes at 200 degrees centigrade. After that, bake them for about 35 minutes at 180 degrees centigrade. Use a sharp knife to check if they’re done. If the knife comes out clean, they’re ready.
- Get them out of the mold as soon as they’re baked.
- Share them with family and friends!
They make the perfect treat for your coffee or tea time 🙂
Enjoy these pretty little Canelés de Bordeaux!
Have a delicious day ❤
