Although I have never been to New Orleans, I would love to go. I already have it all planned out in my mind: my first visit would be to Café du Monde for some beignets and café au lait!
The first time I made beignets, it involved lots of oil and lots of frying. In fact, our house smelled like a deep fryer for days. I’m happy to tell you that my second attempt at beignets is much healthier and just as tasty. In fact, I think they are infinitely better!
This recipe comes from Good Housekeeping and while it is relatively simple, it does require quite a few steps. If you plan on making these tasty treats for breakfast, be sure and get up early to give yourself plenty of time for the beignets to rise.
Your house will smell wonderful! As soon as the beignets are done baking, dust them with powdered sugar. They are best served warm.
These beignets are like little pillows of sweet goodness. Perfect with a cup of hot coffee, or even drizzled with some chocolate sauce.
