New Orleans Beignets
New Orleans Beignets – soft, pillowy and the best New Orleans beignets recipe ever. This recipe is fail-proof, anyone can make it.
Not too long ago, I shared my easy beignets recipe using a choux pastry formula for the beignets. We loved it a lot and the recipe is very well received by many readers. However, some readers requested the real New Orleans Beignets recipe, so here it is for you.
There is nothing not to love about beignets—soft, pillowy, sweet fried dough dusted with sugar, lots of sugar. This recipe delivers just that. If you don’t like the choux pastry texture, these beignets will fit your bill as they are dense, doughy, but still very light to the palate. They are much better than donuts!
Needless to say, both my son and I finished almost half of these as soon as they were hot off the frying pan, Now I don’t even have to go all the way to New Orleans to have my fix of beignets anymore; this recipe is so easy to make, fail-proof and delivers amazing results. Enjoy!
