Easy Fail-Proof Beignets


Yields: 15
Prep Time: 0 hours 10 mins
Total Time: 0 hours 30 mins

Ingredients:
  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 3/4 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp. melted butter
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting



 

Directions:

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. In another large bowl, combine egg yolks, sugar, ¼ cup water, melted butter, and vanilla and stir to combine. Fold into dry ingredients until just combined.

In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form, then fold into batter.

In a large pot, heat oil to 375º. Drop small spoonfuls of batter into hot oil and fry until golden, about 5 minutes. (You want to keep the oil at 375º to make sure they cook all the way through.) Transfer to a paper towel–lined plate.

Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
