Baked Beignets rolled in Nutella sauce

Jump to recipeJump to recipe card

Beignets are soft, fluffy pastry balls rolled in powdered sugar and are very famous in New Orleans. They are available in a variety of shapes and forms with embellishments practically in every street corner. The pastry balls are deep fried and will only qualify for an occasional treat. 

After our immensely popular buttermilk biscuits, we got about making slight changes to make a sweet version. So here we are, presenting Baked Beignets coated with our own Nutella. Don’t forget to checkout the recipe – Nutella

So what did we change from our Buttermilk biscuits – we brought down the quantity of buttermilk and increased the milk. We added a few tablespoons of Maple syrup to make it a sweet offering. Thats pretty much it. 

We then took maple syrup and homemade Nutella and blended it to made it into a decadent sauce. We rolled the Beignets in the sauce and let it sit.
