State-by-State Baking :: Louisiana Beignets

by | Oct 15, 2012 | State-by-State, State-by-State Baking | 0 comments

For the state of Louisiana, the 18th State, the girls read P is for Pelican: A Louisiana Alphabet  before completing their Notebook Pages.

As soon as the girls read the book they knew that they wanted to make Beignets!  Right away I emailed a friend from Louisiana and asked for her favorite recipe.  (Thank you Aimee!)  The recipe she shared was so easy!  We didn’t get around to actually making them until this past week, but, oh boy, did they turn out yummy!

Rhodes Frozen Dinner Rolls
Oil for Frying
Powdered Sugar


Thaw dinner rolls according to directions. When they’ve risen to the size of dinner rolls, heat up canola or vegetable oil in a frying pan. Using kitchen scissors, cut each roll in half and then poke a hole in the center for even frying. Fry until golden brown on each side and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle liberally with powdered sugar.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
