New Orleans Style Beignets


New Orleans Style Beignets


There is nothing like cold, nippy air to make you crave a piece of sweet fried dough! This recipe is my version of the New Orleans Beignet. They tastes oh-so-good, and they’re perfect for late night snacking or a breakfast indulgence.


Oil for frying
3/4 cup white sugar
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/4 cup whole milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch salt
2 pinches ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons powdered sugar

How to Serve:

In a deep, heavy fry pan, heat the oil to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. While the oil heats up, combine the eggs, butter, milk, and vanilla together in a mixing bowl. Beat until smooth and creamy. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Stir to mix.

Slowly pour the wet ingredients over the top of the dry ingredients, stirring gently to combine. Do not over-mix.

With a spoon, scoop a small ball (about 1 ounce) of the dough up and drop it into the hot oil. Repeat with the rest of the dough, working in small batches of 5 to 7 balls at a time. Turn the beignets several times to ensure even browning. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, then remove to a paper towel to drain.

Dust with powdered sugar and serve immediately!
