Beignets (donut holes)

19 May

2 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch nutmeg
2 Tbsp melted butter
3/4 cup milk + 1 tsp vinegar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
Oil for frying

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk + vinegar, egg, butter, and vanilla. Mix until well blended.

Heat 2 inches of oil in a deep heavy pan over med-med high heat. Once hot , drop the dough in carefully by spoonfuls. Don’t crowd them. Turn the beignets every 30-45 seconds until browned on all sides. Remove from oil and place on paper-towel lined plate.

Dip them in powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar.
