THE STORY BEHIND
Beignets made with yeast pastry or "Boules de Berlin " in French (referring to Berliner doughnuts which have a spherical shape) filled with jam or cream. This variety is similar to the Polish paczkiand, the Portuguese Bola de Berlim or known as "Krapfen " in Germany or "Oliebollen " in The Netherlands. In the US, beignets are associated with the city of New Orleans where they are served at restaurants like Café du Monde. They are also the official state doughnut of Louisiana.
