Equate’s handmade canelés are actually pretty decent: flavour’s on point, a good vanilla and custardy fragrance with a lovely caramelisation. It did however lack the signature crusty exterior (theirs were a tad soft even before the dunking), and I found the texture of the canelé a little dense and kueh-like. Their canelés were also a lil shorter than usual, so my guess is perhaps these bébés didn’t rise too well. Slight improvements on the texture, and these would be some stellar canelés.
