Will make approximately 32 beignets


  • 1 cup water
  • 4 ounces unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon sugar, granulated
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup, plus 2 tablespoons sifted all-purpose flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Vegetable shortening, for deep frying
  • Confectioners' sugar


  • In a small saucepan combine the water, butter, granulated sugar, and salt.
  • Once the mixture has reached a rapid boil, remove the pan from the heat.
  • Add the flour all at once, stirring vigorously.
  • Cook the paste over low heat while beating briskly, continuing until the ingredients are thoroughly combined, and the dough cleaning comes off the side of the pot to form a ball.
  • Remove the pan from heat.
  • Add all of the four eggs one at a time, beating in between each one.
  • By hand or with an electric mixer set at medium speed beat the paste until it is smooth and glossy.
  • Stir in the vanilla.
  • In the deep fryer, heat 3 inches of shortening to 370 degrees F.
  • Drop square shaped teaspoonfuls of dough into the shortening.
  • Fry the beignets in batches, turning them over until each side is a golden brown. This will take about three minutes.
  • With a slotted spoon, remove the fried beignets.
  • Place them on a paper towel to drain.

Sprinkle the beignets with confectioners’ sugar and serve hot with coffee!
