Fat Tuesday was this week and while others around the nation were stuffing themselves, I was eyeball-deep in required reading for class. As a reward for my academic diligence, I thought I would whip up a batch of homemade beignets.
After some research, I began to feel a little intimidated. I don’t have a very good track record when it comes to frying things, but Hells Bells, I wanted beignets! Beignets I shall have!
The dough itself was relatively easy to throw together, and the fact that it only required a 1-hour rise time was definitely attractive.
The dough is quite sticky and requires a heavily-floured surface in order to be rolled out.
