    Unless you’re within walking distance of Cafe’ Dumonde you need to have a fryer with peanut oil some powdered sugar and this mix handy. This is EXACTLY the same thing you are served in the French Quarter down by market. I recommend leaving the mix rolled out a little bit thicker than what it says on the box so they puff up a bit more when frying. If you have ever watched them being made I can assure you they do the same. Thank me or blame me later depending on your own level of self control!

    So…made a mess in my kitchen, but totally 100% worth it. I went to tech school in Biloxi and drove over to New Orleans all the time (French Quarter). Went to get these beignets. So, almost 30 years later I came across this recipe box and decided to give it a try. Holy smokes…they turned out great! The taste is pretty darn great.

    So easy!! I have always been scared off by these thinking they must be hard to make, especially since I have zero experience frying things. Let me assure you: so easy and so worth it! Of course nothing beats sitting in Cafe du Monde with a cup of chickory coffee and a paper bag full of powdered sugar and beignets but this’ll do.

    I have traveled to New Orleans often and never miss a chance to stop by Cafe du Monde. I never thought about buying the mix while I was there but scrolling through Instagram I saw one of my followers making a batch I immediately checked here! (I swear, Amazon has everything! Ordered made some…..just as I remember same flavor same taste, only thing missing: the sights and sounds of New Orleans! I think I will order another box and keep them as a staple in my pantry.Thanks Amazon for carrying a New Orleans tradition!

    My wife and I had a lot of fun on our French themed evening, we made some dinner, watched a movie and had these for dessert. Very easy to make, clean up and turned out great.Microwave some peanut butter and drizzle over these with powdered sugar.next time we plan to infuse these with a syringe full of pudding.

    It brings back memories… My folks briefly lived in New Orleans and got hooked on these popular ‘donuts’. About once a month, my Mom and Dad would make these in an electric skillet. Then, I would get to shake them in lunch bags filled with either powdered sugar or cinnamon / sugar. Both worked great and this batter mix makes it super easy to enjoy on a Saturday morning. Notably, Cafe Du Monde’s website has videos and tips for how they make them.

    I’m a New Orleans native living away from the city. My wife and I like to have Beignets on Sunday mornings. Our results vary, surprisingly some times. On our recent trip to New Orleans we stood behind Cafe Du Monde by Jackson Square and watched the pros making the tasty fritters and learned a couple of things.1) The dough needs to be very very moist. It almost oozes when they drop it into the machine that rolls them out.2) The instructions tell you to use a lot of flower. We werent using enough, but when your dough is super wet you really need that flour.3) The instructions say 1/8 of an inch but i think that they should be closer to 3/16’s or a quarter of an inch. I think that the directions call for 2 cups of mix to make 2 dozen Beignets, i think that 2 cups of mix should give you closer to 1 dozen. (we usually make half that much)4) 370 seems to be a good oil temp, as the instructions request. To know that you have the mix thick and wet enough the beignets should take just about 4 minutes to cook. If they cook faster than that, they are either too thin or too dry or both. (We timed the cook at Cafe du Monde at just about 3:50)5) When the pros make them, they toss the flower covered dough into the oil and dunk them occasionally as they’re getting all of the beignets tossed in. One they’re all in, they use a perforated screen material to hold them submerged during the rest of cooking. We had an epiphany when watching this. We could get a very similar result at home by taking the basket out of our deep frier and tossing the beignets directly into the oil. The thing is, the beignets will float, so you can easily scoop them out with a slotted spoon. This allows us to use the basket to keep them pushed under the oil. I tried this yesterday and it worked great. A couple of the beignets touched the heating element and got a little burn mark on them but either way, these were the best i’ve ever made.My wife cant tell the difference but i swear that the sugar that they used in New Orleans tastes different than the stuff we’ve been getting from our super market. It’s sweeter and has no after taste. I find our confectioners sugar has a slightly bitter after taste. I think that theirs tends to want to clump a little which makes me think that the store bought stuff has an ingredient to keep it from clumping that theirs lacks. I’m going to be on the hunt for a higher quality sugar.I hope that these tips help someone. Good luck.Also, if you ever get the chance to visit Cafe du Monde, you should do so. If for no better reason than to give your pallet an ideal to strive for!

    First, a few commented on expiration dates. Our boxes arrived and the product with an expiration date that is six months away – so no problem on that front. You can make two batches from each box and each batch makes about 24 small beignets.While the first half of the batch I made didn’t “puff up” when I cooked them – the flavor was still great and my girls each had two servings. By the time I got to the second half of the batch, I had rolled them a little thicker (and possibly because the dough had an opportunity to sit out for a bit?), they puffed up beautifully and tasted even better.I think I may try to let it sit for twenty minutes or so before I cook the next ones – and I’ll be sure that my oil is hot enough – as that may also have impacted how they cooked.Either way – a FUN make-at-home treat.

    Make sure you check the expiration date. They are not kidding with this. The seller I bought this from put stickers over the dates. Luckily mine expire in October so I am good.

    Followed the instructions on the box and had a perfect product. I do recommend listening to Creole jazz music while you cook these, AND when rolling out the dough, you’re gonna need a BUNCH of flour (as mentioned in the instructions). The first time I rolled the dough, it was too sticky underneath, so now I do a “roll-flour-and-flip” method for some yummies.
