Beignets - Just a fancy word for "sinfully delicious fried, yummy goodness that the whole family can enjoy" donuts. Had these yesterday at a market we went to. They had them with peaches on them...yummmy.
Try this traditional recipe for beignets from a user who swears this tastes just like the ones served at the famous New Orleans hot spot, the Cafe du Monde. Pour a coffee or hot chocolate and enjoy these tender pillow-like doughnuts for any special occasion or weekend breakfast.
