Preheat the oven to 240°C (460°F).

Stage 7 - 5 min.

Divide the batter evenly between the moulds. Be careful not to fill them more than 3/4 full, as the cannelés will rise during cooking.

Stage 8 - 1 hour

Bake for one hour (the time will depend on your oven), until the cannelés are nicely browned on the outside but still soft in the middle.

Remarks

You can replace the rum with another flavouring of your choice.
