Wegmans spells it cannele, Wikipedia spells it canelé. Either way, it was cute and good.
This cylindrical pastry, made in a special mold, was avaialbe in plain (vanilla?) or chocolate at the Wegmans pastry counter the other day. It is cake-like with a custard filling, and at $1.50, a nice treat. You could even put a dollop of whipped cream in the well on top.
I just love coming across these little surprises on a routine grocery trip, and that’s the kind of “find” that really sets Wegmans apart from more – shall we say mundane? – stores.
