    TasteTester's Note:

    Mmmmm -- nothin' better to go along with a weekend breakfast like some warm, gooey, doughy and sweet beignets. We eat them with 10x sugar sifted on top, but some people like pouring cinnamon-maple syrup over them. This is the easy way to make them -- it uses no yeast because it's a "quick bread" variationl

      These were good. I put cinnamon sugar on mine, not realizing I was out of powdered sugar. Not the healthiest breakfast, but a nice treat. And they're fun to watch roll around in the oil lol. Thanks!
