I always have Cafe Du Monde beignet mix and coffee with chicory in my pantry. When enjoyed together they make up a simple weekend breakfast that just can’t be beat.
As you can imagine, when the Test Kitchen decided to combine the two and make coffee beignets with a coffee glaze I couldn’t contain my excitement.
We switched things up a bit and didn’t cover these confections in a mound of powdered sugar (although, you definitely could). Instead, they dunked these steaming, deep-fried delights into a rich, coffee glaze.
The addition of coffee into the dough adds depth of flavor that standard beignets lack. The coffee glaze only heightens the rich coffee flavor and adds a beautiful sheen. Enjoy these coffee beignets with a cup of joe for a breakfast that coffee lovers, native New Orleanians, and brunch-goers alike will enjoy.
