Caneles Without Beeswax

Coating canele molds is one of the most important steps in ensuring the baked canele custard cake release with ease. In this recipe we coat the Caneles molds without beeswax and use a generous amount of butter instead.

After making tons of caneles pastry with and without beeswax, we find that using butter instead of beeswax for coating the canele molds works much better plus you get that added flavor from the butter which is a bonus.

What Is Beeswax?

Beeswax is a type of wax that is naturally produced by honey bees. The bees produce the wax then discard inside their hives.

What Is Canele Mold?

The best traditional canelé de Bordeaux French pastry are made using special molds that are made out of copper. These copper molds transfer heat better than silicone molds, stainless steel molds or aluminum molds. The canele molds are distinctive designed and shaped for canele cakes.

These copper molds can be a bit expensive, costing about 20 bucks each…ouch, I know. If you don’t have the copper molds, you can use silicone molds, ramekins or even muffin tins, to make these caneles, they will still turn out delicious…Pinky Promise!
