sometimes the universe allows several great events to converge on a single day. today, is national doughnut day, i had leftover raspberry sauce made by my friend Cathy and i found chocolate dulce de leche in the supermarket.
i wanted to make the fastest, easiest donuts that i could and that meant beignets. if you’re in a big hurry, you can have these made in just over 2 hours. you’ll find the link for the yeast raised beignet recipe here. as you’ll see in the photos, i first tried filling the beignet with the dulce de leche,
but that got old fast. in the end, i settled on cutting rough chunks of dough for frying then gave them a nice dusting of powdered sugar and a good swirling with the chocolate dulce de leche. i set them up for dunking in the raspberry sauce but you could certainly top them with the raspberry sauce.
