How to make Beignets

Welcome to the most satisfying little sweet there is, fried dough, or us Americans call it, a donut. I know I shouldn't have another one, but they are just so good. So good that this recipe is the recipe they use at Cafe Du Monde in New Orleans. I have never been there, but thought it would be the perfect beginning to our 1st Episode of Season 2.
