Place in a bowl and let cool. Incorporate then the sieved flour, the oil and the rum.
Prepare moulds for canelés by buttering them generously using a paintbrush. Place moulds in the refrigerator for a few minutes so butter can harden. Preheat the oven in 200°C. Fill moulds in canelés about 3/4 and place them in the oven between 45 minutes to one hour or as you wish them to be either soft or crisp.
Let them rest(base) 5 - 10 mintues before turning out on a tin. Ready to sample tepid or cold.
