Something we've wanted to do for a while, and did not disappoint. These are delicious! A few comments: be sure to keep the dough cold until it goes in the cooker or they'll be hollow. Also, an inch is too thick; roll to half an inch. We made some round ones as instructed and then got the result we really expected by cutting the dough in 1x2" strips with a floured knife. Great!

Wonderful recipe diner, simply wonderful. The beignets are amazing. We enjoyed them so much. I had some with icing sugar and dh had his with cinnamon sugar, two happy campers were we. This was a quick and easy to make recipe. I did leave it in the fridge over night, as it was really thin and sticky, at first, I thought I did something wrong. But they puffed up beautifully. Thank you so much for sharing a recipe that I have wanted to try for a long time. Made for ZWT9 .
Great recipe, so light and fluffy - loved the addition of cinnamon to the dough. I'd made another beignets recipe before but really liked these. Followed the recipe completely and glad I did, feel the slow rise in the fridge overnight made for a light dough with a high rise. The dough was very sticky and loose which worried me but after sitting was fine. My only suggestions to others is make sure you leave them in the fryer long enough as my first one was still doughy inside with the high rise. I made half with powdered sugar which is what I'm used to with these and half with the sugar cinnamon for those that preferred. A great recipe that I'll use again and again.

They are also great with lemon cest insted of cinnamon in the dough an only sugar outside,<br/><br/>Many thanks for a great recipe!
I used our ABM to prep the dough. Refrigerating the dough made working with it much, much easier. (I also oiled the bowl first that held the dough and that also helped.) But I'll be honest: I think I prefer the non-yeast version of beignets but my review should in no way be considered negative or stop anyone from trying this recipe. Let me try another beignet again tomorrow morning *with coffee* ... Made for ZWT 9.
OUTSTANDING, MOST DEFINITELY OUTSTANDING! I first had some of these ages ago when I went to New Orleans (Mardi Gras, no less) & thoroughly enjoyed them then! With this recipe, I can experience all that enjoyment again! Never thought I'd be making these in my own kitchen! What a treat! Thanks, much for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Gimme 5 tag]
Made these for dessert tonight. We topped them with icecream. OMG! It was to good. My husband says we need to have them again very soon. Thanks for an great treat.
This was my first attempt at anything like this, and I was very worried that they wouldn't turn out. But the instructions were very clear, I followed them exactly, and the recipe turned out to be quite tasty! The kiddos can't wait to try these special treats again. Thanks for posting!
At first I thought the dough was too soft to mold and cook, but after it was chilled, it was easy to work with. Indeed, they're good, just like any sugar donuts found in bakeshops. Next time, I'll try to cook it after 3 hours and not more than 24 hours (my fault!) so that it doesn't develop a beer smell. DH ate these instead of having his dinner first. "Coz they're good," he exclaimed. Thanks for sharing this recipe, diner542!
