Breakfast with Bignets

I made the bignets! Granted, I made them from the box mix, but still… It’s time for celebration. They worked out great. My kids helped and they were extremely happy. Instructions in the box were super easy to follow. However, the texture of the dough was very different from what I had expected. I decided to faithfully follow the amount of water indicated in the box, and the mixture came out perfect although a bit tricky to handle. Here are some pictures.

Prepare the mix after the instructions on the box, literally. I loved remembering my little French (un = one, deux = two, trois = three, quatre = four) and teaching my kids the pronunciation… Fun! Fun! Fun!

Instructions on the box are super easy to follow.

Once mix is ready drop a spoonful on a counter with a ‘lot’ of flour.

Dough consistency almost feels like a drop of water.

Once they are golden brown on both sides, take them out.

Have a bowl ready with powdered confectioners sugar. Cover the bignets completely with sugar and serve.
