Beat to mix well.

After this time, a skin may have formed on the top. Beat to mix once again.

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.
