  • Cooking time


  • 25cl milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of freeze-dried coffee
  • 50g plain flour
  • 15g butter
  • 75g icing sugar
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 1 tablespooon rum.


Heat the milk with the butter, feeze-dried coffee and the scraped vanilla pod.

At the same time, combine the egg, yolk and icing sugar. Add the flour.

Gradually pour in the milk/butter/warm coffee mix.

Let stand in a cool place for 12 hours before filling the cannelés moulds ¾ full.

Pre-heat the oven to 210°C. Put into the oven for 10 minutes baking at 210°C.

Then, lower the oven to 180°C and continue baking for 25 minutes without opening. For a chocolate version: Pour the warm milk/butter mix over 80g of 70% cocoa-content, previously grated chocolate. Add 20g of bitter cocoa powder to the flour and proceed as above. For a personnal touch, I like to pop two chocolate nuggets on each cannelés just before baking, for a final soft little tasty heart. Tip: Cannelé purists add 1 or 2 tablespoons of rum to their preparation.
