Did not know that. Being a New Orleans native, I don't have any trouble getting ahold of a box though. ;)

Here is the recipe I used:

1 1/2 c. warm water (110 degrees)
1 pkg. dry yeast
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs, room temp.
1 c. evaporated milk
7 c. flour
1/4 c. veg. oil
Oil for deep frying
Powdered sugar

In a large bowl, sprinkle yeast over water; stir until dissolved. Beat in sugar, salt, eggs and evaporated milk. Gradually beat in 4 cups flour and the oil. Add remaining flour gradually and beat until a smooth dough forms. Cover bowl and refrigerate overnight.
Roll dough on a floured board to 1/4" thick. Cut into rectangles 2 1/2" x 3 1/2". Heat oil in deep fryer to 360 degrees. Fry four rectangles at a time for 2 to 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

Keep beignets warm in a 200-degree oven until serving. Just before serving, sprinkle with powdered sugar.

I thought they came out great. DW thought they were very good and my next door neighbors liked them as well. :cool1:

Here in Louisiana that's one thing we can have even when not at WDW, I've had them at the original Cafe Du Monde in New Orleans lots and lots. They sell the mix everywhere here and I would recommend it for some "original" beignets:goodvibes

What's your address? I'll be right over!:rotfl:

I'm here thinking I really want a sweet snack, but being virtuous and eating cabbage slaw instead, and you had to go and post that bit of info!:sad:
(yeah yeah! I heard that! You said, "then why are you looking at the Disney Restaurants thread?".......I don't know! The wind just pushed me this way!
