  • To deep fry, Mazola Corn Oil
  • 2 cups bread flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Fleischmann’s Baking Powder
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Extra bread flour for rolling beignets
  • Powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oil for frying to about 350°F.
  2. Oil should be at least 2-inches deep, if a deep fat fryer isn’t available an electric skillet works well for frying beignets.
  3. Combine 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast, sugar, salt and baking powder in a large bowl.
  4. Heat buttermilk and water to very warm (120°F to 130°F).
  5. Mixture may look curdled.
  6. Add to flour mixture and mix until well combined.
  7. Add remaining 1 cup flour and mix well. Dough will be sticky.
  8. Place dough on very generously floured surface.
  9. Roll dough to a 9 x 15-inch rectangle, adding more flour as needed.
  10. Cut into squares, 4 x 6.
  11. Fry 3 to 4 beignets at a time, turning occasionally until well browned, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  12. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels.
  13. Cool a few minutes, then generously sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  14. Serve immediately.
