Ludivine's Signature Dessert

Canelés are small French pastries with a soft and tender custard center and a dark, thick caramelized crust. The dessert, which is in the shape of small, striated cylinder is a specialty of the Bordeaux region of France but can often be found in Parisian pâtisseries as well. The custard batter is baked in a mold, giving the Canelé a caramelized crust and custard-like inside.

The History of Canelés: Canelés were first baked in the 17th Century by the Nuns of the Covent of the Annunciation in Bordeaux, France. The pastry became popular in the 18th century when some craftsmen, called Canauliers, decided to dedicate their craft to the baking of these authentic and traditional pastries by using copper molds. In the 20th century, the Canelé reappeared when an unknown pastry chef re-popularised this antique recipe by adding rum and vanilla.
