Orange Scented Beignets.
How nice does that sound?
Well they taste even nicer!
Beignets are like a french style donut.
There are a couple ways to make them and the more common recipe is closer to our American Style donuts so I’ve decided to show you a less common technique for Beignets and that is the pate a choux style recipe.
The result of this style recipe is more of a custard-y filling (although it is not custard at all, that’s the best way I can describe it) since it is far from a yeast raised dough and more like the filling of an eclair or cream puff (and rightly so, since this is the exact same dough only fried not baked!)
I also like this recipe because you don’t have to wait for the yeast to develop, its pretty much cook it on the stove then fry them up!
These beignets are like little orange scented gems of warm soft insides and lightly crisped almond-sugar coated outsides!
If that doesn’t sound like a real treat then I don’t know what is!
You can leave out the orange essense (the flower waters if you dont have them or don’t like them. They do impart a subtle flower-y taste to the dough that is very sophisticated and really brings this recipe to a new level) You have to use them sparingly though or you will have donuts that taste like perfume!
The Nice thing about this recipe is that it is very versatile and takes well to different spices and flavorings; so if you don’t like the orange idea then you can get really creative with other spices to incorporate into the pate a choux paste.
I was thinking gingered-cardamon dough rolled in cocoa nibs and powdered sugar, or lemon and lavender rolled in vanilla sugar!
Or forget about the infusions and just go straight up vanilla dough rolled in cinnamon sugar!
The possibilities are endless so get creative with your bad self! And be sure to share with me on my facebook page when you do!
