Pancake Mix Beignets (2 ingredients)

Lately, I have been making the most easiest Beignets, that are only made with 2 ingredients. Pancake mix and water, although Beignets can be made with yeast dough, lately I have been pretty successful with pancake mix.

I do not have pictures of making the dough, but its really easy.

Here is how to make pancake mix Beignets:

Ingredients:

3 cups instant box pancake mix

1 cup water

flour (or pancake mix) for dusting

Instructions:

First add 2 cups of pancake mix to a bowl,

then mix in 1 cup of water.

Then add 1 more cup to the mix until it separates from the bowl into a dough, no longer runny like a pancake.

Place dough on a lightly floured cookie sheet.

Roll out 1/2 inch thick.

Cut out into 2 inch by 2 inch squares , an easy way to do this, is cut lengthwise, then across.

Be sure to use enough flour that they do not stick when you cut them, and only cut once.

Heat up vegetable oil about 375 degrees, not over 400 or they will burn.

In small batches fry a few squares, until golden brown on each side.

For sopillas (hispanic version): use lard instead of veggie oil.

dry them on paper towel, or on a cooling rack for excess oil to drip off.

Top them with powdered sugar and jam for beignets or honey for sopillas.

Here is a few pictures of the beignets I made today.
