Crispy homemade beignets with cinnamon! Many of us always had a soft spot for our grandmothers’ food. They always prepared stunning recipes with love and simplicity. I imagine the wood board on the table full of flour. The eggs in the basket waiting to make an omelet. Open butter, waiting to be spread on a good slice of bread with homemade jam. And good coffee heating up on the old stove…

Nostalgia comes up to date on Eat Well 101 and there is a whole range of “retro” cooking recipes coming over the next months. So I wanted to try these wonderful crispy beignets. What are they? They are simply small flat crispy doughnuts covered with confectioner’s sugar. But enough talking, more making…

Instructions:

Heat the oil in a frying pan.

1. Put half the flour in a large bowl, and add eggs, butter, salt and a teaspoon of sugar. Mix well.

2. Gradually add the remaining flour to make a smooth paste.

3. When the dough has got enough consistency, knead with your hands, adding a little flour if necessary — the dough should not be sticky but slightly elastic.

4. Stretch the dough into a very thin sheet then cut it into diamonds with a roulette.

5. Fry the dough squares in the hot oil.

6. Drain and sprinkle with icing or powdered sugar progressively.
