Now, for those of you who may be gasping at the fact that me, writer of 'Only From Scratch' bought a box mix, you will be pleased to know that I do not make EVERYTHING from scratch. There is usually at least one box of mac & cheese in my pantry, and occasionally I make cakes from a box. Until this morning I had never even checked into a beignet recipe, but there are some, so maybe next time I'll try that.
If you're looking for a great breakfast treat, or even a fun family night dessert, these would be perfect! All you need is this:
and some water, oil and confectioner's sugar. Just follow the directions on the back of the box (or use this recipe).
Combine mix and water.
Roll out to 1/8-inch thickness.
Cut into small squares.
Fry in oil at 370F until puffy and golden.
Remove from oil and drain on paper towel.
Shake generously with powdered sugar.
Have a wonderful weekend!!
