Beignets «


March 26, 2010 | 7 Comments »


This morning I went for my usual morning walk/jog bright and early in the morning. While walking past one of the gas stations I smelled doughnuts. Apparently the place to get doughnuts around these parts is the local gas stations. I’ll admit, it’s a little weird, but they did smell good. So when I came home I looked up a recipe for beignets and whipped up a batch. Probably not the best thing to eat after a workout, but not to worry. I didn’t eat more than one. I mean two. I didn’t eat more than two.

They don’t look so pretty, but I assure you they tasted great. I really need to get started on equipping my new kitchen with all the coolest gadgets. Maybe then my beignets will be perfectly shaped. Not that they’re supposed to be round anyway. Aren’t they typically square? Every single vegan version I’ve seen have been round. I thought they were cute so I just went with it.

Also, Ethan gives them two thumbs up.


Those look amazing. I can’t wait to have two hands again!!!

@Junk­Food­Jane! : ): Thank you! They were! However, I’m sure I could have done without all of those calories. *sigh*

Those look sooooo amazing! Love your blog!

@Mor­gan: They were quite tasty! Thank you so much! :)

I want this recipe! I am not vegan, but my husband is vegetarian, I am Kosher and lactose intolerant… so non-dairy goodies are always in high demand! I think I am going to have to keep checking this site for your great ideas and recipes!! Thank you!

Hi! Just found your blog through Foodgawker and wanted to say that you have the cutest blog header graphic I’ve ever seen. Also, the beignets look delicious. Cheers!

@Ruth H.: Ruth, I followed this recipe: It’s very easy to follow and didn’t take long at all. I hope you find it to be useful. :)

@Kyle: Thank you so much for your kind words. :)
