One of my favorite Disney treats are Mickey Beignets! There is nothing like enjoying this French doughnut at Disneyland from Mint Julep Bar in New Orleans Square or at Port Orleans French Quarter at Disney World. Yum.

 

I’m getting hungry just writing about them. During one of our trips to Disneyland, we ate Mickey Beignets for breakfast every day we were there!

What is a Beignet?

 

A beignet is the French term for a pastry made from deep-fried choux pastry. Beignets may also be made from other types of dough, including yeast dough, which is what will be used in this recipe.

 

I was first introduced to beignets when I visited New Orleans with my husband and son. We had no idea where we were going or what we were doing in the city, we just happened to come across an eatery called Cafe Du Monde. Boy am I glad we did.

When I learned that beignets were available at Disneyland and they were shaped like Mickey Mouse, I was totally excited!

 

For some reason, any food tastes better when it is shaped like Mickey. I don’t know why?

 

One of my favorite things to do is to recreate Disney snacks and treats at home! It’s definitely how I try to bring some Disney magic into my house and helps me deal with Disney Withdrawl.

Ingredients for Homemade Mickey Beignets

 

The first thing you’ll want to note, is that this dough needs to be refrigerated for a long period of time before using.

 

Because of this, I like to make the dough the night before I plan to make the beignets.

 

Next, you’ll want to gather all of your ingredients. This is what you will need:

 

  • 2 1/2 Teaspoons Yeast
  • 1/3 Cup Warm Water
  • 1 Cup Evaporated Milk
  • 1/2 Cup Oil (Vegetable or Canola)
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Egg
  • 4 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • Oil for Frying (Vegetable or Canola)
  • Powdered Sugar, for dusting

How to Make Mickey Beignets

  1. Hi! I’m wanting to make these for my daughter and son’s Disney World themed birthday. I know they won’t be warm, but is it possible to make them the day before and then warm them in the oven the day of? Thanks!

    • I haven’t tried, but I think that might work. What I would do is make them the day before without covering them in powdered sugar. After you warm them up on the second day, dip them in melted butter before shaking them in the paper bag with powdered sugar. Let the powdered sugar dry and if needed, return beignets to the bag and shake again until enough powdered sugar has coated them. Don’t dip in melted butter again, just shake in bag. Let me know how they turn out!
