Canelés de Bordeaux

I may earn a small commission for my endorsement, recommendation, testimonial, and/or link to any products or services from this website.

Canelés de Bordeaux are petite pastries with a caramelized crust and cake-like interior. When I was in France, I spent a good deal of time munching on macarons and eating Italian-style ice cream, but had been told by a few friends that I simply had to have canelés while i was in the city most famous for them.

My friend Jerome scribbled out a map to get to Baillardran, a bakery in Bordeaux that specializes in canelés.

While I was there, I picked up a handful of canelés and several different macarons. Violet, mimosa, almond, raspberry, chocolate, and rose. Delicious!
