BAKED BEIGNETS



Beignets are sweet baked treat that are part bread, part doughnut. It was introduced by French families in Louisiana  during  mid 1700 along with their chicory coffee.

 Never baked beignets before but  when I saw them on the net, decided to bake them myself. There are two types of beignets - fried or baked. Of course my choice goes to healthier version and easy method.

Combination of beignets and sweet coffee is so satisfying and  filling too.  Start baking yours to enjoy this lovely bake!

BAKED BEIGNETS
Yield  :   20
Modified from KAF

2  C  all purpose flour
1/2 C  evaporated milk
1/4  C  hot water
2 TB melted butter
1 TB sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp instant yeast
1/4  C confectioners'  sugar


DIRECTION

Place all purpose flour,and instant yeast in a mixing bowl, stir to mix.

In a small bowl combine evaporated milk, hot water, butter and sugar.

Pour milk mixture to the flour, sprinkle salt and forms into soft dough. If it is sticky add 1-2 tablespoon flour.

Transfer to the floured board, knead by hand for 10 minutes or you can  use your mixer to do the job.

Place the dough into greased and covered bowl, let rise for an hour.

Gently degas the dough, roll out into rectangle on floured  work space. Cut into  1.5-2 in squares. Preheat oven @ 180C. Let sit for 45 minutes.

Place the squares onto baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

While still warm, toss with  confectioners' sugar until well coated.
