Beignets Bourguignons


Beignets Bourguignons ... This recipe originates from the Burgundy region of France. Beignets are deep fried light fritters, served with a generous dusting of caster sugar. These little treats are best served hot and straight out of the fryer.


Beignets Bourguignons
**************************

Makes : 24 Beignets, depending on the thickness

Ingredients :
  • 175 gm.  ( 6 oz. )  self-raising flour ( I used plain flour + 1 1/2 tsp.  baking powder )
  • 50 gm. ( 2 oz. )  caster sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tbsp.  dark rum ( I used 1/4 tsp.  vanilla essence )
  • 75 gm. ( 3 oz. )  unsalted butter
  • Oil, for deep frying
  • Caster sugar, to sprinkle
  • Extra : Sweetened apple sauce, strawberry jam or chocolate sauce; to serve
Method :
  • Mix the flour and sugar in a mixing bowl.
  • Work in the eggs and add the rum ( or vanilla essence ).
  • Cream the butter and combine it with the batter to make a soft pastry.
  • Cover the bowl and leave the pastry to rest for about 2 hours.
  • Roll out the pastry on a floured work surface and cut it into diamond-shaped pieces.
  • Heat the oil in a large heavy saucepan to 190 C / 375 F or until a cube of bread turns brown in 30 seconds.
  • Fry the pieces a few at a time for 5 minutes until golden brown.
  • Lift them out with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  • Dust them with caster sugar and serve immediately, with a sweetened apple sauce, if desired. Serve hot.

    1. Thank you Henna. New Orleans-style beignets are made with yeast-raised dough. I have a bit of a yeast phobia, so this recipe works for me :)
