There's nothing quite a warm and fresh beignet that's come right out of the fryer and dusted with powder sugar! These homemade beignets inspired by New Orleans and are pillowy soft and light. The process of making them is quite easy and they're best enjoyed in the morning with a cup of coffee.
If you're not familiar with beignets, you're truly missing out. You can think of these almost like donuts. They are fried pieces of dough that are traditionally square and buried in powdered sugar once ready to be enjoyed.
They are a French pastry with the word 'beignet' meaning 'fritter'. Beignets are incredibly popular in New Orleans and they vary slightly from their French origins given that the famous New Orleans beignets are raised with yeast instead of steam.
These are must for a brunch day! Cheers and eat well!
These classic beignets are light, pillowy and soft, fried until golden brown then dusted with powdered sugar.
