Beignets of Buns


  • long baker's buns
  • milk
  • 1 cup sifted flour
  • 1/8 teaspoonful salt
  • 2 eggs
  • sugar
  • stewed fruit or fruit jelly


Take some long baker's buns (ones which are a day or 2 old are the best), cut them into halves, dip each half separately into cold milk and lay them on a dish; mix the flour with the salt, yolks of the eggs and 1 cup milk to a smooth, thin batter; add lastly the 2 whites beaten to a stiff froth; put a large fryingpan with 1 tablespoonful lard and butter over the fire; when hot dip each half of bun into the batter, lay them in the pan and fry on both sides to a fine brown color; serve on a long dish; dust with sugar and lay 1 spoonful stewed fruit, such as plums, cherries, apples, huckleberries or stewed gooseberries, or some fruit jelly over each one.
