How to Make Beignets

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat the milk up in the microwave for 1 minute.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the hot milk and egg with 2 TBL of vegetable oil and the sugar. Blend thoroughly, then add the dry yeast and stir to dissolve.
  3. Sift together the flour, salt, and spices, then add half to the yeast mixture.( if you have a stand mixture with a hook attachment that works great when mixing this. If not mixing by hand works just the same!) Add the remaining flour and knead to incorporate.
  4. Spray a seperate bowl with cooking spray and form a large ball, put the dough in the bowl, cover and let it double in bulk, about 40 minutes.
  5. Punch down the dough and knead until dough is elastic.
  6. On a floured board, roll out the dough to a thickness of 1/4 in and cut into 24 5 in squares. (I use a pizza cutter for this part but you can also you any cookie cutter you like to form any shape you want!)
  7. Place the dough on a greases cookie sheet and allow the dough to rise again for about 45 minutes.
  8. Pour about 3 in of oil into a deep fryer or a heavy-bottomed sauce pan, heat to 375 degrees. Drop in dough a few at a time, cooking them and turning them till golden.
  9. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on absorbent paper. Dust with powdered sugar. Serve hot!
