Delicious Caribbean Beignets with Rhum Barbancourt

The recipe is very quick and easy to make. It takes less than 3o minutes to make as long as you have everything at hand. The beignets can be made for breakfast and even served as dessert. The use of confectioner’s sugar is my favorite way to serve it because you can have it with ice cream. Such a delicious treat!
