Real New Orleans Beignets

I've never been a huge Beyonce fan but Signs 
has got to be one of her best tunes. She doesn't do a ton of screaming or crazy adlibbing, it's totally laid back and hott!

Remember when I went to New Orleans a few weeks ago and I bought that box of beignet mix from Cafe Du Monde? Well I finally got to use it. This sunday and and the boyfriend got a chance to make some tasty beignets...also known as french donuts! There are directions on the box, but you know we didn't follow those.All you really need is water and powdered sugar.

It starts with a box

2 cups of mix makes about 20 mid sized beignets.

You add water,we also added 2 pinches cinnamon and 2 tblspns sugar.

almost ready

Now we are ready to fry. Allow the oil to heat on med for about 8 mins. You only need about 2 inches of oil.

turn them only after they have browned and puffed on one side.

Finished product. It's just like a donut ball, and the powdered sugar is the perfect finishing touch. These are super easy to make and perfect for in bulk if your having company.
