the metal matters

I had been baking the caneles with the aluminum molds and the results had not been satisfactory... so I finally got some copper canele molds. They are a bit pricey... $24 (large) a piece at William-Sonoma, but the fact it, they are worth the price.

I tested the molds with the same canele batch.

The caneles being baked in the convection oven. You can see how the batter "rises" more evenly in the copper molds, and there's already some color on the top as well.

Fresh out the oven. The batter "shrinkage" is more even in the copper molds.

good and bad caneles
Wow! See the differences?

I say the copper molds are totally worth it.
