Growing up in New Orleans, Beignets at Cafe Du Monde was always a weekend treat for my siblings and me. Hence, my mom would find a table to sit with us while my dad would wait in the long line to get our hot beignets and glasses of chocolate milk. By the time we would leave the French Market Coffee Stand we would all be covered in powdered sugar.
I even remember one time going to Cafe Du Monde on a field trip in Elementary school. Additionally, each student received a paper hat to wear, and they gave us a behind the scenes tour. Eventually, as I grew older and had kids of my own, I moved away from New Orleans for a while. But, I always brought my kids to eat beignets and walk around Jackson Square when we visited my parents.
Now that I live 40 minutes away from New Orleans and my life is busy I don’t get to visit Cafe Du Monde as much as I would like. That’s the reason I starting making these Easy Biscuit Beignets. They’re easy to make when I’m short on time. Though there are occasions when I have more time, and I buy the beignet mix or make beignets from scratch with my kids.
