Either way, cafe du monde sells a box mix that can usually be found
In a lot of stores. You may be able to search the website for local retailers


Not sure about tracing them back to Africa, but I thought the general consensus were that they were French doughnuts that are popular in nawlins

They are African. The pastry style is French though. Y'all don't have to know. My people know what we made, and what White people stole.

ETA: Are you saying that they originated from Africa from pastry techniques learned from the French? But how'd they get over here?

No. I'm saying that "as I know it," there is an African style beignet (in Nigeria we have something called puff. I don't know what it is in other places). It isn't really a dessert. It is more of a side dish served with stew. No confectioner's sugar. The dessert style pastry is French, so the pastry style dessert is French. It is well-known that the French colonized many parts of Africa, so I'm saying they may have seen a dish and decided to take creative liberties. I'm not trying to down the French. Sorry if this offends you.

Truth be told, just about every culture in the world has their own version of beignets. I just think there happens to be an African version. Les beignets is very much a French staple. However it's quite possible that New Orleans added an African twist to it. After all, new Orleans food is a mixture of French, African/west indian, so that would make perfect sense.
On another note, I've rarely dealt with men who enjoyed sweets all that much, for some reason. Not even the ones in my family. A good T-Bone is more likely to reel them in, lol

Honestly, I don't believe that. The French have a strong culinary gastronomy of their own and French pastry including "beignets" has been around forever. So I really don't think that the French stole the idea for beignets from Africa. HOWEVER, New Orleans food is basically French west indian food and French west indian food is basically a mix of African and French food, which is why it's quite possible that the New Orleans beignets have more of an African flair than the traditional French beignets.
