Ingredients for 4 people


1 cup water
3.5 oz butter
a pinch of salt
1 1/3 cup flour


Preparation

1
Pour water into a small saucepan, add butter and a pinch of salt and put on heat so that the butter melts in the water.

2
When the water begins to boil, gradually stir in sifted flour and continue stirring until you have a smooth batter.

3
Continue cooking, stirring until the batter easily detaches from the side of the pan.

4
Then, transfer it to a bowl and let cool to room temperature.

5
When the batter has cooled, add the eggs one at a time, mixing until soft, smooth and not too runny. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper and fill a pastry bag with the batter.

6
Squeeze spirals of batter on the baking sheet, 2 inches from one another.

7
Bake the dough in a preheated oven at 400°F (200°C) for 15 minutes until the beignets are smooth and light.
