There is a LOT of baking powder in these so the finished product after cooking is really bitter. We used both powdered sugar and honey on them which masked the bitter taste. Props for this recipe being easy. The kids made them on their own and enjoyed doing it. Watch them closely while cooking as there's a super fine line between raw and over-cooked. The family enjoyed them and that's all that matters. Read More

My first go at beignets. They tasted pretty good, especially with the raspberry preserve smudged on top. Would have been helpful to have a temperature to make the oil, but a quick search on the interwebs suggested 370f. I found it difficult to keep the temperature at this level; frequent use of a candy thermometer was useful. Still had issues with dough not cooking in the middle on some. Overall delicious. Hard to go wrong. Read More
