Quick Donuts / Beignets

Ka Garrett


We love donuts but live in the country so a "donut shop" isn't close. I found this recipe somewhere.
These remind me of New Orleans Beignets at Cafe Du Monde

Deep Fry


1-1/8 tsp
dry yeast
1/4 cup
warm water
1/4 cup
milk (evaporated, whole 2%)
egg, beate
1/2 tsp
1 Tbsp
melted butter
3 Tbsp
1/2 tsp
1 1/2 c
a-p flour
3-4 c
oil for frying
powdered sugar for garnish
cinnamon sugar for garnish


1In a large bowl dissolve yeast in warm water.
2Add the milk and the next 5 ingredients
3Then beat in flour 1/2 cup at a time (use electric mixer
beating by hand may make the batter tough)
Let rest 30 minutes or so.
4Preheat oil to 375 degrees
Place dough on a well floured board and roll to
1/8 inch thickness. Cut dough into 2 inch squares or shapes. Fry a few at a time. When they rise to the top flip and let them get golden brown. Drain on paper towels and dust with powdered sugar or cinnamon and sugar. Serve hot with coffee or tea.
The donut will get bottom heavy if you don't flip as soon as they rise to the top. You can always flip them a couple of times to obtain the desired color.
5Donuts best served hot. They do not reheat well and taste very doughy when cold.
My grandson loves to sprinkle on the sugars. He loves to "make" donuts
