Beth’s Canelé Recipe
Makes 12 small canelés or 6-8 large canelés
2 cups (475ml) milk
1 vanilla bean
3 tbsp.(45g) butter (use salted butter inside The United States. Unsalted Outside the States)
½ cup (100g) sugar
3 egg yolks
½ tsp (2.5g) salt (increase to ¾ tsp/3.75ml if using unsalted butter)
1 ½ tsp (7.5ml) rum extract
1 cup (120g) of all-purpose flour
In a large sauce pot combine the milk, the vanilla bean paste and pod, butter and sugar. Heat until butter is melted and vanilla seeds rise to the top. Remove vanilla pod and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl whisk together the egg yolks, salt and rum extract. Slowly temper the eggs by pouring a small amount of the warm mixture into the eggs whisking all the while, combining more milk gradually until all milk has been combined.
Slowly whisk in the flour just a little at a time, until all the flour has been incorporated. Strain mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a 4-cup Pyrex Pitcher. Add back in the vanilla pod for a deeper vanilla flavor. Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 24 hours, but 48 hours is even better!
TIP! Allow the batter to rest, allows the gluten in the batter to develop. And you’ll see you’ll have a thicker batter. If you do not allow the batter to rest your batter will puff up to to point that you’ll have more of a popover or like a Yorkshire pudding!
The longer you allow the batter to rest, the shinier the exterior will also be on your canelés and the denser and more custardy your interiors will be also.
Pre-heat oven to 450F(232C). Spray the canelé pan with baking spray, distributing it well with a pastry brush.
TIP: Much better browning and release from the baking spray than butter. No need for the beeswax! I found it really hard to source and to know which variety was food safe.
Pour batter into canelé ¾ of the way full. Bake at 450F (225C) for 10 minutes. Then reduce heat to 375F(190C) and bake for 30-35 minutes more until tops are a rich golden brown.
Remove from the oven, allow to cool and then remove the canelés from your pan and flip upside down. Allow to cool completely before serving, this will set the centers.
These are best eaten the day they are made.
They can be made ahead and frozen in an air tight container or zip lock bag, then reheated in a 300F(148C) oven for 10 minutes to de-thaw and crisp back up.
