Now you can Make Mickey Beignets From Disney World’s Port Orleans Resort at Home!

Disney World has some pretty amazing treats around its parks, but don’t overlook the resorts. There can be some tasty treats you won’t want to miss. Given the current situation, you may want to try your hand at making some of these food items at home. One of those is Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter Beignets. This is one of those treats you go here just to get! Trust me I’ve done it!  You can find the Mickey beignets in the Scat Cat Club’s Cafe. But for now, here is how you can make them from the comfort of your home.

What you need to get started is as follows.

  • 2 eggs
  • 7 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 pack dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups (warm) water
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 cup undiluted evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup soft shortening oil, for frying (I have used vegetable or canola oil)
  • confectioner’s sugar/ cinnamon sugar/or make a glaze for topping

You are going to want to prepare your dough the night before as it should be covered and chilled in the fridge overnight. To prepare the dough get a large bowl put the warm water in, and then sprinkle the yeast packet over it. Mix it to dissolve it. Combine the salt, sugar, and eggs into the bowl and mix with an electric mixer. Next, add the flour and mix. Once that is done your dough is ready for the fridge.

The next day, start by Heating your oil in the deep fryer to 360 degrees. Take out your dough and flour your workspace. Roll the dough to a 1/8″ thickness. Cut them into 2 1/2″ squares or if your feeling fancy Mickey-shaped. Pop them in the deep fryer for 2-3 minutes being sure to turn them halfway through. You want them to be a nice light golden brown color. I always have a plate ready with a paper towel on it to drain the grease off of them.

Depending on what you want to top them with you can decorate them once you let them sit on the paper towel for a few seconds. They are traditionally topped with confectioner’s sugar. I like mine with a cinnamon-sugar mixture. Disney also makes a few different variations with glaze or filling, and even a boozy beignet if you want to get really creative with it. Beignets are best served warm in my opinion. The remaining dough can keep in the fridge for a few days. Keep it covered up and each day manipulate it a little. This recipe makes 5 dozen, or a little less if you are making the Mickey Shaped ones. You can always cut the recipe if you don’t want as large of a batch, but trust me they are so good you will!
