Valentine's Day Pink Cannelés
This traditional delicacy from Bordeaux is getting a makeover with the prettiest pink pralines, making them simply impossible to resist. It’s the perfect Valentine’s Day dessert, but try not to eat the whole lot in one sitting!
Preheat the oven to the maximum temperature.
In a saucepan on medium heat, place the milk and the whole pink pralines.
Split the vanilla pod open, scrape the seeds with a small knife, then add them both to the pan.
Stir continuously until the milk is boiling, then leave to cool completely, before removing the vanilla pod and the whole almonds from the pralines.
In a large bowl, mix the egg, egg yolks and sugar, then add the flour and mix again. Add the butter, rum and finally the flavoured milk. Leave the batter mix to rest in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
Butter the 12 moulds and fill them with the batter up to about 0.50 cm before the edge. Bake for 5 minutes, then lower the temperature to 200°C and continue for 60-70 minutes.
Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
