Beignets are the perfect combination between a crunchy sweet outside and a soft inside. A classic beignet is fried in oil and contains a lot of fat.

This will add a lot of calories which is not really required especially if you know there are other ways to bake a beignet.

This recipe is vegan as you only use plant based ingredients. So no egg wash or butter puff pastry. So I know you are wondering what the secrets of the best beignets recipe are. Here we go.

Secret 1

The first secret to the best apple beignets is the vegan puff pastry. This assures you the beignet will stay together and allows you to fill the beignet.

If you use a batter you will have to fry it in oil. Batter in oil absorbs a lot of oil which you do not want. Nowadays you can easily buy vegan puff pastry so no need to pass on a beignet when you are vegan.

Secret 2

Secret number 2 is all about the filling. Normally a beignet doesn’t contain a filling. When it does it is a cream but in the Netherlands a beignet contains a fruit filling like homemade apple pie filling.

The combination of crisp puff pastry and soft apple pie filling is priceless and a real classic. When you taste these beignets you will wonder why you would ever eat a regular beignet again.

If you want you can add other fruit to your easy beignets like:

  • Banana
  • Peach
  • Cherries
  • Nectarines
  • Plums

Secret 3

The third secret has everything to do with the baking method. Instead of frying your beignets put them in the oven. You do not need any additional butter, milk or eggs to get a nice brown color on your beignets.

Just make sure you glue the puff pastry properly with water. You will be surprised how nice and brown they are.

How to make apple beignets

Beignets come in a lot of versions. When you oven bake puff pastry it gets really crisp.

For this recipe I have used my trusted apple pie filling that I love so much. If you have made it and stored it in the fridge or freezer you can use it in this recipe.

Then I put a circle on parchment paper, add apple pie filling and press another circle on top. To make make the circles stick even better put some water between the two pastry circles and press tight.

Before you put them in the oven lightly brushed the beignets with water and sprinkled with organic sugar. You might think you need egg to get a brown beignets but this is not necessary.

The sugar will caramelize and the water will turn  the beignets a nice color brown. Pre heat the oven to 460℉/225℃.

Put the beignets on a baking tray and put them in the oven for at least 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle them with some powdered sugar and you are ready to serve.

Store the beignets

These apple beignets can be stored in a number of ways. Store them:

  • Leave them outside of the fridge for up to two days
  • Put them in the refrigerator for up to 4 days
  • Want to keep them for more than a week freeze the beignets in a zip loc bag for a couple of weeks

Want to eat them defrost when this applies and warm them a couple of minutes in the oven and you are good to go. So yummy.
