Winter is coming to the town. Ok, not in my part of the world where I can do the sun bathing every day. This is not about the weather I am speaking of. This is merely about the sweet little Miss B who loves to wear her winter coat, even in the Summer.
I am talking nonsense ( I know ). I just like to make up stories about the cakes I make. Imagining what they are journeying into (hehehe).
About Miss B. Hmm… she’s the sweet simple one. The petite no one canever resist of; from the one year old to the hundred years old. With or without teeth, seriously. I chose to make over Miss B, using the method from http://www.frenchfood.about.com, the wonderful country where Miss B came from. Besides, this oneis simple, they don’t use yeast so you can make it anytime you likewithout spending time much waiting.
Miss B has changed in so many different styles where you can find her with delightful taste in many parts of the world . In Indonesia, she is known as roti goreng ( fried dough ) because we use yeast. Still she is well known as the one from New Orleans, the soulful city of music and dance and food and party… I guess Miss B fits it all ( LOL ).
So, here I present you my one and only, Miss B(eignet).
Looking gorgeous, isn’t she ?
* 1/4 cup butter
* 1 cup water
* 4 eggs
* 1 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* Oil for deep frying
* Confectioner sugar at your taste
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter in the water. Add salt and flour, and stir until a sticky batter is formed. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until the batter is smooth.
Heat the oil to 375F. Fry mounded teaspoons of dough, several at a time, for about 6 minutes. They are done when they are light, golden brown on each side. Drain them for a few minutes on a clean kitchen towel and served warm, dusted with the confectioners sugar. ( or shredded cheese or strawberry jam or anything you love ).
