I want to continue sharing recipes because I want to continue her food legacy and how she inspires me with her lovely cooking, and how it has nourished me while I was growing up. Food brings families and friends together, and sharing some of her recipes here hopefully will achieve that.
Anyone who has been to New Orleans must have had the sublime beignets of Cafe Du Monde. Those who plan of going there please do not skip the oportunity to taste these soft, melt in your mouth pillow shaped doughnuts. You can read about them here. Notice even Wikipedia uses Cafe Du Monde's beignet as a reference for with this french dessert.
So I did my search on the net as usual for recipes and tried this one out, I halved the original measurements and an important tip to note is the punching of the dough after it has risen.
Do try this out for a nice morning or afternoon snack, and trust me it is not that hard of an attempt for any amateur cook like me to master. Happy Trying!
