Cook time: 1 hours 0 minutes
Yield: 12 canelé
|1 cup all-purpose flour|
|1 cup white sugar|
|4 egg yolks|
|¼ cup rum|
|1 teaspoon vanilla extract|
|¼ teaspoon kosher salt|
|2 cups whole milk|
|2 tablespoons unsalted butter|
|1 teaspoon unsalted butter|
|2 tablespoons butter|
|2 tablespoons beeswax|
- Place flour, sugar, egg yolks, rum, vanilla extract, and salt in a mixing bowl. Mix and smear into a smooth paste using a spatula. Continue mixing until flour is fully incorporated.
- Place butter and pour milk into a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. As soon as milk mixture comes to a simmer, remove from heat. Slowly add half the milk to the flour mixture to prevent the egg yolks from cooking. Whisk until well blended and smooth. Slowly pour in the rest of the milk mixture; whisk until batter is smooth. Batter will be thin.
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
- Melt 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon butter and beeswax in a skillet over medium heat. Stir with a pastry brush. Remove from heat. Brush the bottom and the sides of each muffin cup generously with the butter/beeswax mixture.
- Ladle batter into muffin cups until mixture is almost to the top. Place pan in preheated oven. Bake 10 minutes.
- Reduce heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Bake until canelés are very well browned, about 50 minutes.
- Allow to cool just 5 minutes. Run a thin blade around the sides and carefully remove canelés from cups. Invert onto a cooling rack. Let cool completely to room temperature to create the crispy surface.

What is canelé and how to make it?
A canelé is a cork-shaped pastry from Bordeaux, which has a caramelised crust and soft middle. These impressive desserts are well worth the effort Make the batter a day in advance. Put 160ml milk, the butter, the vanilla pod and seeds, and 20g sugar in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over a medium heat.
How do you make cannelés with beeswax?
Beeswax seals the cannelés for a longer shelf life and forms a crust for a crisp shell. And while there is no added flavor, it does give a nice mouthfeel. Heat the milk, butter, and vanilla to a rolling boil then turn off the heat. Allow the vanilla to steep while you prepare the other steps. At this point, the batter will be very liquid.
What is the best way to spell cannelé?
There is no best way and both spellings are totally acceptable. Originally, cannelé was written with two “n”s due to their shape, but the second “n” was removed in 1985 when some bakers and pastry chefs from Bordeaux gathered and created the Brotherhood of the Canelé of Bordeaux (Confrérie du Canelé de Bordeaux).
How long do you cook canelés for?
When you remove the canelés mix from the fridge give it a little stir before pouring into the canelé moulds; do not fill quite to the brim as they tend to rise a little. Bake in the oven at a high temperature for 8 minutes only, after this lower the heat to 180 degrees celsius for a further 40 mins.
