Louisiana made the beignet their official state doughnut. They're a treat for both breakfast and dessert--just make sure they're served hot and fresh. Martha made this recipe on Martha Bakes episode 602.

    At first, I had some claims with this recipe; I thought the dough would be plain (not sweet enough), and that mixing yeast directly with sugar would burn the yeast and prevent the dough from rising properly. I'm happy to write that I've been wrong on both counts. I replaced nutmeg with cinnamon, which gave the beignet a taste of winter pastries (such as cinnamon buns). I've made a fresh batch this morning and served them with hot coffee and freshly pressed orange juice, it has been a success! They were soft and fluffy, and sweetened with icing sugar. I'm definitely adding this recipe to my personal cookbook.
