Mini Beignets


Making these mini beignets is a fantastic idea because, well, let’s face it, everything mini just tastes so much better, right? Okay, maybe not everything, but these mini beignets are incredibly cute and an absolute blast to eat, especially when you pair them with an easy 2-ingredient chocolate ganache dip.

Here’s what you need:

  • For Mini Beignets:
    • 2 3/4 cups (370g) all-purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
    • 1/4 cup (60g) caster sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 1 cup (230ml) buttermilk
  • For Chocolate Ganache Dip:
    • 3.5 ounces (100g) dark or milk chocolate
    • 1/4 cup (50ml) double cream

Here’s how to whip up these delicious treats:

Mini Beignets:

  1. In a bowl, combine 2 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, and 1/4 cup of caster sugar. Mix everything together using a whisk until well combined.
  2. In a separate bowl, add 1 egg, 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract, and 1 cup of buttermilk. Whisk until the ingredients are well combined, then pour this into the bowl with the dry ingredients.
  3. Stir everything together with a spoon until the dough begins to come together. Then, knead it on a floured counter until the dough is smooth.
  4. Wrap the dough in cling film and let it rest for 10 minutes; this will make it easier to roll out.
  5. Roll the dough into a large rectangle, maintaining a thickness of approximately 1cm-1.5cm.
  6. Cut the dough into small rectangles (or squares) and deep fry each side for 1-2 minutes.
  7. Dust with icing sugar and set them aside while you prepare the chocolate ganache dip.

Chocolate Ganache Dip:

  1. Melt the chocolate in the microwave, heating it in 10-second intervals. Stir in the cream until it’s well combined.

Enjoy your delicious mini beignets with the chocolate ganache dip!
