French CannelésItem #: CNL24
These exquisite little rum cakes with origins in Bordeaux are simple elegance defined. The crepe-like crust, turned crispy by burnt sugar, houses a unique firm yet subtly creamy center, rich and decadent. Dating back as early as the 17th century, the invention of the Cannelé is believed to be tied to the wine industry of Bordeaux. Egg whites were used in the wine making process, resulting in an abundance of left over egg yolks which were then used to create the first Cannelés. A prime example of the French mastery of pastry, these wonderful treats are both refined and sinfully good. 27 individual canneles.
