These fluffy beignets are stuffed with Nutella and so easy to make. You can also use jam!
Beignets are a kind of donut made with sweet, yeasted dough. They are fluffy, soft, and deep-fried to a golden color before being dusted with lots of confectioners sugar. Beignet is pronounced BEN-yays. As in, there’s my good friend “Ben.” And “yays!” these donuts are so amazing my Yay is plural! :)
The first thing you will need to do is make the dough. The method is the same as for challah or any other bread dough.
Once the dough has risen, roll it out, cut it into rectangles and add Nutella!
Fold the dough over and and seal the beignets using the tines of a fork.
Now it's time to fry your beignets! Check out my step-by-step video so you can see how to do this. :)
Dust lots of powdered sugar onto your fried beignets. Don't hold back!
I mean, just look at that bite. SO GOOD. Enjoy!!
