Pandan Canele De Bordeaux - bake this sweet treat for Mom

Made with love with our favourite Pandan, giving it an Asian twist

Canele or canelé is a French pastry, and one of our featured chefs, Catherine, has flavoured it with Pandan leaves powder. It has a soft and tender custard centre and a dark, thick caramelised crust, topped with Pandan ganache and desiccated coconut. This is best eaten fresh because the caramelised crust makes it crispy and when you bite into it… mmm... 👍👍. Check out Catherine's Instagram and beautiful reel! This recipe has been kept to be published specially for Mother's Day 2024.
