Are you looking for the light and flavorful Disneyland Beignet recipe? Look no further! This recipe is similar to what you’ll find at Disneyland – especially if you go during Halloween. The delicious Disneyland copycat pumpkin Mickey Mouse beignets!
Besides the rides (of course), the specialty treats at Disneyland are definitely the highlight of a trip to Disneyland.
I recently shared a post about the best treats at Disneyland, but today, I wanted to share how to make one at home!
Mickey Mouse Beignets.
And not just any Mickey Mouse Beignets – PUMPKIN ones.
I know, it’s totally not pumpkin season anymore…but really, shouldn’t every season be pumpkin season 😉
Anyways. When we went to Disneyland last year, I couldn’t wait to try the beignets. Everyone I knew raved about them, and I KNEW I had to try them!
They were SO delicious, and I’ve been dying to make them at home ever since.
However, as I started searching for recipes, I found people talking about a season version of the beignets that have made an appearance in the past – pumpkin beignets!
And since I had just picked up about 10 cans of pumpkin that were on close out at Target, I knew what I had to do.
Make pumpkin beignets.
And you guys? They are SO good. They were light, airy, and had a slight pumpkin-y taste to them.
My mom tried some, and she said, “These are even BETTER than Disneyland’s.”
Is it bad if I agree?
You can easily make these without pumpkin and make them as traditional Mickey beignets, but I really do love the pumpkin touch. I adapted this recipe from this great one on Get Away Today!
Don’t forget to order your Mickey Mouse cookie cutters – it makes a difference!
- 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 1 1/2 cups warm water
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup pumpkin
- 1-2 teaspoons pumpkin spice
- 4-6 cups white flour
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- 2 Tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 quart vegetable oil
- Powdered sugar
- Combine yeast and water in a large bowl. Stir and let sit for 10 minutes.
- Add eggs, sugar, salt, heavy cream, and pumpkin. Stir.
- Add four cups of flour. Blend until smooth.
- Melt butter and coconut oil together. Add to mixture, along with pumpkin pie spice.
- Dough will be slightly sticky, but it shouldn't stick to your hands. If it's too sticky, add more flour, 1/2 cup at a time.
- Cover and let rise about one hour.
- Heat oil to 360 degrees.
- In the mean time, divide dough into two pieces.
- On a floured surface, roll dough out to about 1/8" thick. Cut Mickey Mouse shapes out.
- Carefully pull up the pieces of dough and place in the dough. Cook until golden brown on each side (about 90 seconds on each side).
- Place on a paper towel to drain grease.
- Top with plenty of powdered sugar!
