Binging with Babish: Beignets from Chef (and Princess and the Frog)

  • Published on Aug 7, 2018
  • This isn't the first time we've taken a look at the foods featured in Jon Favreau's food-film masterclass, Chef. In fact, it isn't the second or third time. And it won't be the last. Follow along this week as we recreate these crunchy, squeezy, soft Crescent City donuts that finally brought a father and son together.

    I'm just gonna say... Cafe du Monde's beignets are not the best. The ones I had at least were just hollow and not even exaggerating 70% of their weight at least was powdered sugar. I wanted to stand on a corner and wait for somebody to walk by before exhaling. That last part wasn't their fault, that's just me.

    I saw this video and decided to make Beignets for the hell of it.
    Long story short, I made a mess and my Beignets became demonic. (゚Д゚;)
    Seriously, though. I got confused when you said use 22 ounces of flour, so I just made a. . . rough estimate. Needless to say, I made TWO big plates worth of Beignets instead just one small one.
    They weren't pretty. . . But still delicious.
    Now I know better for next time. Thanks for inspiring me. (*ゝω・)ノ

    Never seen yeast started in milk/buttermilk before. Would think it wouldn’t have much impact as the lactose is unfermentable. May have to try that.
