Gluten Free Cafe Du Monde Coffee and Beignets … this is New Orleans!

This is going to be a great day!

I have New Orleans in my heart and my belly!

I have such fond memories of going to the French Quarter and smelling the Cafe Du Monde coffee and Beignets …. sitting under the big fans and tent outside … trying to be good in anticipation for … sweet vanilla dough heaven and powdered sugared faces!


So I just had to try my best to re-create that somehow. I looked up a few recipes, including the one on the Cafe Du Monde box of Beignets. I decided I just didn’t want to fry it … it is Super Bowl Sunday and I have a game to watch … so I baked it! They are usually square and like fritters, mine are round like cookies and slightly puffed … but the flavor is all there!

Gotta Go ….

… I have Cafe Du Monde and GLUTEN FREE BEIGNETS in the house … need I say more?
GO SAINTS !!!!

mmm … more later …

  1. No, not from a box…I created it by converting recipes. Also it is not fried it is baked but has all the flavor. I am tweaking the recipe so not ready to put it out there just yet.Thanks everyone!Lisa
