free Competition: 5 assortments of canelés to be won with Babelle

From 13/04/2016 at 12:00 to 29/04/2016 at 12:00

Forget the 'cronut', the macaron and even the much-loved cupcake. Try Canelés instead! This mini cake, with its distinctive dark golden crust and soft spongy centre, is the traditional cake of Bordeaux and has been made by French artisans since the 17th century. Canelés originally emerged as a by-product of Bordeaux’s wine industry, which took the surplus egg-yolks used to filter wines and turned them into rich sponges. The name 'canelé' means 'ridged', which reflects the moulds in which they are made.
Babelle is going a step further: using the traditional recipe (vanilla) and infusing its wonderful texture with flavours encountered through their travels or topping it with a decadent ganache. The very best of two worlds, summed up in a simply irresistible (and, be warned, rather addictive) little cake…
Babelle is offering 5 assortments of canelés, worth £18 each!
