Costas French Market Doughnuts (Beignets)

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2011
These turned out awesome! Neighbors LOVED them! My hubby isn't much of a pastry person but he LOVED them and brought a bunch to the shop. I wish I would have read teh reviews before hand about the massive amount this recipe makes! I made a small modification: I used 4 cups all-purpose whole wheat flour (sifted 2x) then used 3 1/2 cups white all-purpose flour sifted WITH the whole wheat (making it 3x the wheat was sifted). This makes the wheat light and fluffy instead of hard and heavy after cooking. Because I used whole wheat, I also added a little room temp. water to the batter as I added the flour. Just enough to make it more moist. I had trouble with not keeping the oil at the right temp. It would get TOO hot and then get too cool. I had a few that didn't expand but stayed flat. Not sure if this was because of the oil or because I used wheat. Other than that, they were SO GOOD!
