    Made these today! Easy to make...I made fried and Baked for those of us watching our fat son was craving donuts this morning and I told him let me make some beignets...such a hit this morning and he loved so much I made more for his dessert. Light and fluffy, I liked both, but he preferred the fried ones! I brushed half and half on baked ones instead reg. Milk...I also used bread flour and parchment paper for the baked ones. For the oil to get to 350 you do need a meat/cooking thermometer...I left it in oil and it alerts me when it hits the temp I need. Thanks Jo for the recipe! Loved by all in this household.

    Very light and fluffy. I had to add more flour to get the correct consistency but I live in a high altitude area (8,000 ft above sea level) so I don’t know if that had something to do with it.

    Delicious! I made the dough in the morning with the intention of cooking them after it rose. It wasn't rising as fast as I needed it to and I had to leave. I came home cooked dinner and then made the beignets for dessert. Everyone loved them. It was super easy and the kids had fun rolling the dough and cutting them into squares and triangles.
