Beignets are French fried pastry made from deep-fried choux pastry or yeast dough.
However, some readers requested the real New Orleans Beignets recipe, so here it is for you.
What Does a Beignet Taste Like?
Beignets are fried “fritters” with a dense and doughy interior.
There is nothing not to love about beignets—soft, pillowy, sweet fried dough dusted with sugar, lots of sugar.
They are very light to the palate and much better than donuts!
Beignets in New Orleans
New Orleans beignets are made with a yeast dough.
It’s a specialty in The Big Easy, especially in the French Quarters.
They are fried nuggets of sweetened dough, usually square in shape, about 2 inches x 2 inches in shape.
After being fried, they are sprinkled and coated with sugar.
This beignet recipe is very easy, fail-proof and delivers amazing results.
If you love sweet desserts, you will definitely love this recipe.
Both my son and I finished almost half of these as soon as they were hot off the frying pan.
Serve them with a cup of cafe au lait and enjoy!
