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

  • 1-1/8 tsp
    dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup
    warm water
  • 1/4 cup
    milk (evaporated, whole 2%)
  • 1
    egg, beate
  • 1/2 tsp
  • 1 Tbsp
    melted butter
  • 3 Tbsp
  • 1/2 tsp

How to Make Quick Donuts / Beignets


  1. In a large bowl dissolve yeast in warm water.
  2. Add the milk and the next 5 ingredients
  3. Then 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.
  4. Preheat 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.
  5. Donuts 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
