Mom and cannelé de Bordeaux


My mom is going to her gourmet dinner group tonight. It's a bunch of women who have been making food for each other once a month since I was two years old. They're in their 31st year and they're still going!!

Tonight, she's bringing cannelé de Bordeaux, which she made with a mold the Professor gave her for Christmas. I brought them back from Florida two days ago. The first attempt was a bit funny, but she's far more patient than me and has done an amazing job with the rest. Moms are great.


Here are all of the attempts.

  1. The herd looks cute. You tried one?

  2. I tried one of the ugly ones that came out first, but then had to run to catch the train to Toronto.

    I posted the recipe down below. But I'll only be able to vouch for it if she saves some for me to try when I get home.
