Let's first discover the history behind these famous Bordeaux french « petits fours » and the importance of using the right cake mold to make them. The cannelé should have a soft interior and a crispy, caramelized exterior.

The story of how the cannele cakes were created remains a mystery. Nevertheless, we are sure of one thing : the history of these Bordeaux pastries is linked to the history of Bordeaux and wine. When people at the time filtered wine traditionally with egg white, it was therefore necessary to find a use for yolks and they made small pastries ! Somes says that it was born either during the 15th or 18th century at the Annonciades Convent in Bordeaux city. It is also good to know that it was only in the 19th century that rum was added to these small cakes.

The cannele cake which is a well-known french pastry has become an emblematic Bordeaux cake and the fact of presenting them in their original form thanks to the appropriate mold ( i.e. in the cannele pan in the shape of a small striated cylinder) is essential to better distinguish them. Once spelt cannele with 2 n, the word cannele loses one n in 1985 following a decision taken by the Bordeaux pastry chefs' brotherhood.
