Rated, Y’all: The Biloxi Beignets.

Breakfast, Biloxi-style

A Beignet breakfast, Biloxi-style

What? A New Orleans speciality that has migrated over the border: warm Doughnut-type pillows infused with Cinnamon, deep-fried in Cottonseed Oil, and dusted (very liberally) with a heaps of powdered Sugar.

Unlike the deep-fried Cheesecake they made a rather lovely breakfast, being softer and much lighter than they looked.

Surprisingly fragrant and not oily in the slightest, they came to us as soon as they were ready – proudly homemade and as fresh as can be.

If only we’d had space for their White Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding too.

*SIGH*

Guess I’ll just have to go back…

Where? Le Café Beignet in downtown Biloxi, MS

I tasted the love – and loved the taste
