canelé is a small French pastry with a soft and tender custard center and a dark, thick caramelized crust. The dessert, which is in the shape of small, striated cylinder approximately two inches in height, is a specialty of the Bordeaux region of France but can often be found in Parisian patisseries as well. Made from egg, milk and flour, flavored with rum and vanilla, the custard batter is baked in this type of mold giving the canelé a caramelized crust and custard-like inside.
