I have made beignets in the past but these were so much easier and flavorful. I didn't feel as if I needed to add vanilla. I found them just fine as is. Will be making these again.
This reminded me of a donut recipe but a lot quicker to put together. They are packed with flavor and the bananas in them add a great touch of flavor. I didn't have cake flour so I used 2 cups flour removed 4 tbsp. Of it and replaced it with 4 tbsp. Corn starch.
I bring in a breakfast treat every Friday to the school where I am the nurse there. I brought these in this morning! They were a HUGE hit and will become a favorite for Friday's. I too added the vanilla and believe it is the missing ingredient. I also deep fried mine and it took a little longer than the 45-60 seconds. I left mine in until they were golden brown which took about 2 1/2-3 min. Agree it is easier than you would think to make.
This recipe is alot easier than it looks. It tastes like a warm banana doughnut. Very, very tasty.
Very good beignets. As another review said, I felt it was missing something and, I too, added the vanilla. As my cinnamon is very strong, I didn't feel the need to increase it. Overall a really good beignet.
