Canelés De Bordeaux - French Rum and Vanilla Cakes Recipe - Food.com
Canelés de Bordeaux, also know as cannelé Bordelais, are magical French bakery confections, little fluted cakes with a rich rum and vanilla interior enclosed by a thin caramelised shell. This brilliant recipe was developed a long ago by an anonymous Bordeaux cook, whose innovation has been subjected to 300 years of refinements. Glossy and dark brown almost black at first sight, bittersweet at first bite, the crunchy burnt sugar canelé-shell makes an exquisite contrast to the smooth, sweet…
Cannoli are made with a homemade, salted almond and Amaretto tuiles (thin, crisp wafers) instead of the traditional cannoli shell. Filling is homemade, buttermilk ricotta, lightly sweetened. Mini chocolate chips added. The salt in the roasted almonds is a nice foil to the other sweet flavors, and serves to balance the sweetness of the cannoli.
