What To Avoid While Making this Recipe?

  2. Make sure the oil is at the right temperature before frying to ensure the beignets cook evenly and don’t absorb too much oil.
  3. Don’t overcrowd the fryer or skillet, as this can lower the oil temperature and result in soggy beignets.
  4. Be cautious when working with hot oil to prevent burns or accidents in the kitchen.
  5. Don’t forget to dust the beignets with powdered sugar before serving for the full New Orleans experience.
