Beignets are a deep fried pastry topped off with powdered sugar. Crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, these are a great treat if you want to try making something new for yourself or others. If you're in the mood to treat yourself and want some good old comfort food, then you've come to the right place.
I got this recipe from snug.haven on Instagram, who has the most beautiful pictures of her home and recipes. I asked her for a "self care" recipe to share on the blog and she came up with this one. Upon asking her what do beignets have to do with self care, she replied;
"When I bake, I am my best self! I am alone in my own feelings and thoughts and this is when I feel the most calm, the most serene and the most at peace! THAT is self care!"
I couldn't agree with her more. Baking in your own kitchen, making what you want to make can definitely be a peaceful situation.
