Baking Bites for Craftsy: How to Make Canelés

Caneles, also known as creme brules, are a creamy french pastry that can be a wonderful treat to make at home. They’re caramelized and dense and they aren’t hard to make, though they do take some preparation and time. You will need to plan ahead about 24 hours in advance. Easiest, to begin with, is a silicon mold, and you can add flavors like vanilla bean, lemon or orange zest. They are best eaten freshly cooled from the oven.

Key Takeaways:

  • Caneles are a special form of pastry that are delicious snacks for all.
