    • La Toque Cuivrée Saint-Projet store in Bordeaux

      As you walk towards Place Saint Projet , you won't be able to escape the La Toque Cuivrée boutique. The canelé shop is arranged in such a way as to ensure rapid service for passers-by strolling through Bordeaux.

      In addition to our famous canelés, explore a delicious variety of equally delicious derivative products. Let yourself be tempted by their spread, savor their verrines of canelés with rum syrup, succumb to their Elixir aux canelés, or treat yourself with their caramels with pieces of canelés!

      The Place Saint Project

      Place Saint-Projet, located in the historic district of Bordeaux, takes its name from a bishop who died in 674. Formerly, this place housed a church surrounded by a cemetery, some architectural remains of which have been preserved in the surrounding homes.

      Thus, we can discern the silhouette of a bell tower which, today, is no longer in use, the walls of the old church and the cross of Saint-Projet, from the cemetery, dating from the 14th century. In 1715, a fountain was added to the architectural ensemble.

      Fluted or fluted?

      The origin of its name goes back to Gascon, the language historically spoken in Bordeaux until the 20th century, where we found the term "Canelat" with a single occurrence of the "n", a spelling that we retained until These days. It is therefore not “cannelé” but “canelé”!

      The origin of Bordeaux canelé

      It was the nuns of the Annonciades convent, established behind the church of Sainte Eulalie, who were responsible for their making. They collected wheat from the port, fallen from the holds of boats or from torn bags, and obtained egg yolks from the wine cellars of the Quai des Chartrons where the whites were used to clarify the wine.

      At the time, Bordeaux was an important trading port making it easy to obtain rum and vanilla from the islands. These nuns enriched their recipe by adding these ingredients to enhance the flavor of the “canelats”, today called “canelés”.

      Unfortunately, in 1790, they were expelled from their convent, leading to the disappearance of the canelats!

      The Copper Toque

      The Toque Cuivrée played a key role in the rise of this traditional Bordeaux cake. Years of research and unique know-how were necessary to achieve a perfect canelé. Today, the small pastry shop has become an emblem of Bordeaux.

      Their house is dedicated to the manufacture and sale of the famous Bordeaux canelés, an essential specialty of Bordeaux gastronomy . Their canelés are unanimously hailed by their customers as being the best in Bordeaux!

      Don’t hesitate to take a look at their website to discover their products, their shops and their canelés recipes.

      Our advice for even more delicious canelés!

      To optimize the conservation of canelés, it is essential to keep them cool for a maximum of three days. In order to preserve their crispness , it is also recommended to carry out additional cooking. To do this, put the canelés in the oven at 220°C for around three minutes.

    One of the cheaper canele places in the city but the quality does not drop off too much. They have three different sizes of Caneles: small, medium and large. Sometimes there is a line but this goes quite quickly. Employees were nice, ordering was easy, overall solid experience in getting caneles.

    I just love their caneles; crispy out & soft in, wherever I saw their boutique, I'll enjoy a couple. Maybe it's time to open one in Saint-Étienne. 😉
