INGREDIENTI: per 0 persone
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 ¾ oz butter
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 ½ oz all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs

Step 1

Put the water, the butter and a pinch of salt into a pot and bring to the boil.

Step 2

Pour in the flour and mix thoroughly with a spatula until smooth.

Step 3

Continue cooking for a couple of minutes, stirring until the batter no longer sticks to the side of the pot.

Step 4

Transfer the dough to the bowl of a mixer. Let cool to room temperature, then mix in the eggs, one at a time. 

Step 5

At the end, you should have a soft, uniform dough that is not too liquid.

Step 6

Line a baking sheet with parchement paper. Using a pastry bag, form some spheres of dough, evenly spaced across the sheet.  Bake an oven preheated to 400°F. The high temperature will cause the dough to inflate during cooking.

Step 7

When done, the beignets should be smooth, light and hollow in the center so that they can be filled.
