I’m not sure if I missed this but I don’t see instructions on how to make these. I see to mix the dough, but then it doesn’t say if we knead it and how to store it overnight. Do we put it in the refrigerator or leave it on the counter. I’m just confused on what to do after I have mixed the ingredients together.
From what I can tell, you don't let it rise and then knead it again..i think you just deep fry what you want and im going to look for other recipes to see if the rest of it can be saved but it seems to be just the right amount for one time cooking
The first time I made beignets, I used canola oil. We had just come from New Orleans and my husband and I both said, good, but not exactly right. If you want the taste of NOLA, cottonseed oil is what they use to fry them up. Sadly, I can't find it on the west coast and now can't find it online, at least not affordable. :(
You can find cottonseed oil in grocery stores in Jewish neighborhoods about a week before Passover. The main kosher for Passover oil used is rape seed / cottonseed. It will be seasonal, so if you want a large supply, buy a few bottles.
To Elle,maybe is was a simple misprint,maybe they meant Make Beignets ..thanks for your clever hubbys comment,it made me laugh.
This is a traditional recipe and if it could be baked it certainly would alter the taste and texture.
I was directed to this recipe with the email stating "How to Bake Beignets". I do not see any information in this recipe regarding baking. Disappointing. My husband said it's a "bake and switch" email. (wry smile)
I have only had Beignets a few times. Every time the center was gooey. What are the people doing wrong that leaves them apparently uncooked in the center?
It could be you are not rolling it thin enough these are much like
Mexican Sopapillas it has to be thin
Hi, Eric. The problem may be that the cooking oil was too hot. In this case, the outside browns fast and does not allow for the inside to cook thoroughly.
