The beignet is a Louisiana donut. It's fried and rolled in powdered sugar, but we don't put a hole in ours. Ours are square and sometimes flat. The corners are chewy and the powdered sugar makes a mess, but oh, they're good. Made famous by Cafe du Monde in New Orleans, many consider them to be a New Orleans delicacy when the truth is that they're easily made with any good yeast bread dough.
Here in Myrtle Beach, Momma decided to make beignets for our breakfast this morning, so the ladies set up an assembly line.
