Beignets III


Beignets are commonly known in the U.S. as a dessert served with powdered sugar on top, however, they may be savory dishes as well and may contain meat, vegetables, or fruits. Beignets are traditionally prepared right before consumption to be eaten fresh and hot. The most popular drink served with this type of no hole doughnut is Café au lait (heated coffee and heated milk) popularized contemporarily in part by Café du Monde in New Orleans.
