A Taste of New Orleans @ 09:30 am
Shawn is home from her conference in New Orleans. My happy house plant managed to be coaxed away from the hotel a couple of times and actually managed to see the French Quarter and the famous Café du Monde. She brought back this:
So, I read the instructions and bravely gave them a go
The batter was simple. Two cups of the mix and add water. The only tricky part was that I was meant to add 7 fluid ounces. It took me a bit to figure out that meant a little less than a cup.

The final product (with chicory coffee), which Shawn said was a pretty good recreation. I guess next time we'll try making them a little bigger, but they puffed in the middle like they were supposed to. And, of course, enough powdered sugar makes everything tasty!
The coffee was pretty gross, though, if you ask me. I'm glad I tried it, though.
