Les canelés de saison | “Iyokan, Thé et Chocolat Blanc” et “Pommes à la cannelle”

    Here comes the Autumn where fallen leaves stop our steps. One of the seasonal fruits of Autumn is apple. Apples have been known as a nutritious food from old days as we would know from the saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.“ Though the very first apple in Japan was believed to be imported from China, it was not until Meiji-era when it was introduced by the United States that it became fully common to grow them. In Japan, “Fuji” apples have the best production output out of all the kinds of apples. The name Fuji was named after the town Fujisaki in Aoyama where they were born, Mount Fuji and the first Miss Japan, Ms. Fujimori Yamamoto. The number of apple breeds is said to be more than 2000 in Japan and 15000 all over the world. There must be more to know about apples that may interest you. Our seasonal canelés for this month, “Iyokan orange and tea and white chocolate” and “Apple and cinnamon” are available from today, the 1st of November. Iyokan and tea and white chocolate canelés are decorated with white chocolate mixed with chopped Iyokan orange peels soaked in Cointreau on top of the dough with tea leaves and Iyokan orange peels. Please enjoy the rich flavor in bergamot aroma of earl gray tea leaves and the freshness of orange. Apple and cinnamon canelés look like there is an apple on each canelés as they are decorated with apple filling. There are dried apples that are sautéed with butter, white wine and vanilla and 12-grain granola put inside of cinnamon flavored dough. The sweetness of apples and the flavor of cinnamon will amuse you with every bite
