One of my favorite desserts here in the U.S. are beignets. They’re light, fluffy, crunchy, and quite possibly the most addictive things you can eat. I think it might have something to do with the fact that it reminds me a little of Chinese Fried Dough (Yau Char Kwai), but in a sweeter, and lighter way. So naturally, when I found out a few of my old MUWCI friends were moving to Boston, I decided to take a stab at making this dessert.
Overall, I was surprised at how simple this recipe was! Although I have to say, the next time I’m making this, I’m going to get a piping bag and fill each little beignet with chocolate. Glad I could cook for these bunch of people!
