What is a BEIGNET?!
We used the special mix that they use at 'Cafe Du Monde' in New Orleans-If you want to make some, this is the ONLY acceptable mix since it's filled with magic and fabulous-ness! You can buy the mix at any grocery store in the South-I'm not sure if they have them in the North, but I hope so since it gets so cold up there! They need them more than we do! ...but-try looking in the baking aisle. Hopefully, they will be there!
Here they are before we dusted them with powdered sugar- they're round and not as large as the ones at Cafe Du Monde cuz we were using a limited amount of oil and had to use a smaller pan-so we just cut them with a small glass.
If you want to make some, be sure you have a thermometer for ur oil-u can do it in a pot or frying pan and u don't need much oil(it's not like frying shrimp or anything-you don't need a fryer)-but you SHOULD have the temp they tell u on the box, or they'll get all wonky and not cook evenly...and that makes me sad.
Jasmine did little to help besides crawl into the empty water bottle box on the table and judge us. Biatch.
You just put powdered sugar in a sifter and tap it so the beignets get snowed on...and...
