DIRECTIONS

  • Drop 1/2 cup butter and a pinch of salt into a pan containing 1 cup of hot water.
  • Bring to a boil and add 1 cup of sifted flour.
  • Stir and cook thoroughly until it comes together and pulls away from the pan.
  • Turn off heat and add 4 eggs, beating after each egg you put in.
  • Gently flatten the dough and cut into 1 1/2 inch squares (cutting very gently and quickly).
  • Drop squares into 375 degree deep fat.
  • As the beignets brown, they will turn over by themselves.
  • Lay out some heavy brown paper and drain the beignets well on this paper as you remove them from the fat.
  • Immediately sprinkle with a generous amount of powdered sugar and serve right away while still hot.
  • Great with cafe au lait.
  • Be sure to set a castor of powdered sugar on the table so more can be added if needed.
