What is Cafe Du Monde Beignet Mix?
Café du Monde is a renowned coffee shop located in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana, United States. It is known for its café au lait and beignets. You can purchase a box of their beignet mix at the coffee shop and in most tourist shops in New Orleans. Nowadays, you can even purchase them on Amazon
One day I thought, why can’t I use this beignet mix for other things? It has Enriched wheat flour, enriched barley flour, milk, buttermilk, salt, sugar, leavening (baking powder, baking soda, and/or yeast), natural and artificial flavoring; all the fixings needed for a deliciously sweet biscuit. And that is how the cafe du Monde apple cobbler hack was born.
Apple Cobbler using Cafe Du Monde Beignet Mix
Servings: 6 to 8
- 6 baking apples (about 2.5lbs), peeled and sliced ¼-inch thick
- ⅓ cup granulated sugar
- ⅓ cup brown sugar
- 3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 Tbsp butter, cut into small pieces, plus more for greasing the pan
Cafe Du Monde Mix Toping
- 1½ cups Cafe Du Monde beignet mix
- 6 Tbsp + 1 tbsp granulated sugar
- ¾ tsp salt
- 6 Tbsp cold unsalted butter, cut into small chunks
- 1 cup buttermilk
- Optional: serve with whipped cream or ice cream
- Preheat oven to 375°F and set the oven rack in the middle position. Grease a 2-quart baking dish with butter.
- In a large bowl, combine the apple filling ingredients (except cubed butter). Toss until the apples are evenly coated. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish and pat into an even layer. Top with the 2 tbsp cut butter.
- In another bowl, whisk together the Cafe Du Monde beignet mix, 6 Tbsp of the sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the cold butter and smoosh with your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs with tiny clumps. Add buttermilk and stir until combined, do not over mix. It will look clumpy with butter.
- Using a large spoon, dollop the biscuit batter over the apples. Use a spoon to spread the batter slightly, still showing some apple spots. Sprinkle the remaining 1 Tbsp of sugar over the batter.
- Bake for 35 minutes. Loosely cover with aluminum foil(so the top doesn’t burn) and cook for 10 more minutes until the top is golden and completely cooked in the center. Let it cool for 15 to 20 minutes, enjoy!
