    lolsuz's Note:

    All the beignet recipes I've seen so far make enough to serve an army. Here's one that makes beignets for three or four people, adapted for fast and easy prep. Exactly like the breathtakingly light and airy doughnuts I've enjoyed many times at Cafe du Monde.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Measure all your ingredients out and have everything ready to go.
    2. 2
      Heat the shortening and water together until the shortening is melted and the whole mixture is very warm but not scalding hot. Pour into bread machine.
    3. 3
      Turn machine on and quickly add the other ingredients in the order listed and allow the bread machine to knead the dough for the full dough cycle.
    4. 4
      Remove dough from pan to a flour-dusted surface and roll thin. Cut into squares and fry in hot oil just long enough for them to golden brown.
    5. 5
      Drain and serve sprinkled with powdered sugar.
    6. 6
      Tip: Beignets puff up two inches thick or more, so you need at least a couple of inches of oil in your pan.

      Warning: Do Not Boil the shortening and water for 5 min.!!!! This will explode around 3.5 min. into the process and send boiling hot oil and water showering down all over your kitchen (it flew 12 feet in my kitchen!) Thank God I had turned my back and was facing the inside of the fridge retrieving an egg or I would have burns all over the front of me! After this happened I began looking at other recipes and information online and found this article talking about the same thing happening with a recipe from Southern Living! <br/><br/><br/><br/>I followed this recipe, except I boiled the water and then poured it over the shortening in a separate bowl away from the stove and then continued with the recipe as written. I did let them rise again after I cut them out and before I fried them. They were good, I had hoped they would be a little more fluffy, but it might be because I had to change how the shortening and water were combined.
