Ever since our trip to New Orleans, I’ve been dreaming about the deep fried, fluffy, piled-high-with-sugar beignets recipe at the legendary Café Du Monde. The historical French Market has been serving up the delicious French-style beignets and coffee since 1862. Traditional New Orleans Beignets are the only food they serve, so they definitely do it right. And the place is almost always packed. Since we live about 1,900 miles from New Orleans, I figured I’d try a few recipes out so I can make them from scratch at home! They’re really not that difficult to make, but we’ll keep them as special treats for holidays or birthday requests. And the pile of powdered sugar makes them pretty charming and delicious!! If you’re looking for a super easy way to make these beignets, check out our store-bought dough version in the video below!
