  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm (105° to 115° F) water
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 3 1/4 to 3 1/2 cups flour
  • Oil for frying
  • Confectioners' sugar


  • Sprinkle yeast over warm water in a large mixing bowl, stir, and let stand a few minutes to dissolve. Add egg, butter, sugar, salt, and evaporated milk and mix well. Add 2 cups of flour and beat vigorously until blended. Gradually add enough remaining flour to make a manageable dough.
  • Knead on a floured surface for several minutes, until dough is smooth, then place in a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise overnight in refrigerator.
  • Roll chilled dough on a floured surface to a 1/4 inch-thick rectangle about 12 by 24 inches. With a long, sharp knife, cut into squares about 2 or 3 inches to a side.
  • Cover with a towel and let rest for about 20 minutes.
  • In the meantime, heat about 1 1/2 inches of oil to 360° F. Fry 4 or 5 beignets at a time, turning them frequently, for 2 to 3 minutes, until they are puffy and brown. Drain on paper towels, then sprinkle with confectioners' sugar and serve.
