A good cannele should be lightly crunchy and a very dark brown on the outside with a creamy crepe-like consistency on the inside. It does take a bit of work to get this effect, and attention must be paid in cooking these, but you will be well rewarded for your efforts. Follow these tips:
Let the batter chill at least 24 hours.
If you are using metal molds, carefully coat the interior with melted butter using a pastry brush.
Fill the molds almost to the top (within 1/16 inch).
Start with a very hot oven to get the crunchy exterior and then lower the temperature to slowly bake the interior. Remember that all ovens are individuals and you may need to adjust temperature and times to accommodate yours.
Don't freak out when the bottoms turn very brown - these cakes need to stay in the oven for a while to cook through. You can cover the pan with a sheet of parchment paper if the bottoms look like they are actually burning.
This recipe is for baking in 2 inch high cannele silicone molds. Adjust for your size and type of mold. (Metal molds need to be thoroughly coated with melted butter.)
2 cups milk
3 tablespoons butter
1 vanilla bean or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs + 2 egg yolks
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1/4 cup rum
In a small saucepan, warm the milk, butter, vanilla and salt on medium heat until the butter melts and the milk comes to a simmer. (If you are using a vanilla bean, split it lengthwise before adding it and remove it after simmering the milk.) Remove from heat and allow to cool for several minutes.
Meanwhile, stir the flour and sugar together in a mixing bowl. Lightly beat the eggs and yolks and pour on top of the flour mixture. Pour the warm milk on top and whisk all of the ingredients together until you have a smooth batter. Whisk in the rum.
Now the batter needs to sit covered for at least 24 hours in the refrigerator. A handy way to do this is to pour the batter into a clean empty bottle. Filling the molds will be a snap if you do.
The next day, place a small metal grill that can hold your silicone mold in the oven (this helps with moving the floppy mold in and out of the oven), and preheat the oven to 480° F. Pour the chilled batter into the silicone molds filling each cup within 1/16 inch of the top. Place on the hot metal grill and then in the hot oven. Bake for 15 minutes and then lower the oven temperature to 350° F and bake for 1 hour.
Cool and then remove from pan.
