Servings 50 beignets


  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 4 tablespoons sugar divided in half
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 3 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 egg whisked
  • cooking oil spray
  • 2 quarts canola oil


  • 1 cup powdered sugar for dusting


  • In a stand mixer, combine milk, 2 Tbsp. sugar, and yeast. Let it sit.
  • While waiting for the yeast to activate, in a medium sized bowl combine flour, salt and remaining 2 tbsp. sugar. Set aside.
  • In a microwave dish, melt butter. Let it cool slightly.

  • Remove dough and spray the mixer bowl with cooking oil. Place dough back into the mixer bowl and cover with plastic wrap for one hour.
  • On a lightly floured cutting board, roll dough into a wide rectangular shape, ½ inch thick. (If you want airy beignets, roll thin. If not, roll slightly thicker.)
  • Using a bench scraper, cut dough into small squares.
  • On medium heat, add oil to the pot and deep fry the beignets until golden.
  • Place on a baking sheet pan.
  • Sift powdered sugar over beignets.
