King Cake Beignets
Chef Kenneth Temple, "Chopped" champion, thought of this recipe to combine two popular Louisiana desserts. This recipe takes the light and airy dough of a beignet and blends in the colorful cinnamon flavors of a king cake. Proofing the dough would be best left to rest overnight, but you can also let the covered dough rest in a warm spot for 2 hours before proceeding to the next steps. This recipe is courtesy of chef Kenneth Temple.
