Beignets – homemade beignets have never been so easy and delicious! This easy beignet recipe is fail-proof and so good you can’t stop eating.
My love affair with beignets started with a Disney audio CD I play for little G in the car. The CD is “The Princess and the Frog” set in New Orleans about a beautiful girl named Tiana who makes legendary beignets. Little G would always ask me what beignets are and that he really wanted to try them. I took matters into my own hands and made these easy homemade beignets. I was very weary as it was the first time I attempted to make beignets at home but just look at the pictures, I think I passed with flying colors!
I did some research on beignet recipes. The traditional recipe yields a dense and doughnut-like texture, with yeast involved. I opted for this beignet recipe made from choux pastry. The reason is simple: I love light, eggy and absolutely addictive choux pastry, and these beignets are basically golden-brown fried choux pastry balls dusted with lots of powdered sugar!
If you love sweet desserts, I urge you to try out this easy beignet recipe which I learned from Baker Bettie. Little G was so happy and asked me to make more tomorrow. We finished the beignets in no time and I am definitely making more for sure.
