These rich mahogany delicacies are wonderfully soft and sweet. Once you've sunk your teeth into the crunchy, burnt sugar shell you'll be met by a soft and smooth filling: the canelé's sweet custardy heart.
These caramelised creations are a traditional sweet delicacy from the Bordeaux region of France. The original includes Rum in its recipe, but Babelle have made their Canelés more versatile: as well as the classic canelé, Babelle has created an innovative, modern range of flavoured and cream-filled canelés with 'an eclectic twist of world flavours'. Their collections include floral flavoured treats; fruit canelés and ganache sensations. They also offer a range of luxurious sweet caramel sauces to accompany the pastries.
The team behind the London based company is made up of executive chef Philippe Moulin, a leading member of the French Culinary Academy, and Nicolas Wetter, who started his culinary experience creating and running a French Bistrot in Mexico before working as a consultant for restaurants around Latin America and Asia. The Canelés are now available in all Whole Foods Markets and in Fortnum & Mason.
