When we were in the middle of our biracial Disney Princess series Tiana was one of my favorite photoshoots. And when you’re dressed like Tiana. Or watching her movie. Or listening to the catchy songs, it’s even sweeter when you have a beignet in your hand.

On our sail aboard the Disney Wonder Disney Cruise we were able to visit Tiana’s restaurant. And of course try some of her “man catching beignets.” We’ve been hooked since. I’ve only made real beignets a couple of times many many years ago, and it’s not the simplest recipe. Even with the yummiest beignet mix.

An easy take on Tiana's "man catching beignets." These slightly green easy beignets are perfect for a Princess and the Frog party or a Princess and the Frog movie night. No need for hot oil as these are made in an air fryer.

These are my favorite kind of recipes because they don't take a bunch of ingredients and there aren't many steps. Make these together as a fun family activity, or let older kids practice independence.
