The Perfect Recipe For Mom’s Breakfast
And what about Coffee and fresh homemade Beignets for breakfast, this recipe is amazing and mom is sure to love them.
We made them for Easter and they were divine.
- 1 and 1/2 cups warm water, between 110 and 115 degrees (F)
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 2 and 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 2 large eggs, at room temperature
- 1 cup evaporated milk
- 2 and 1/2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract
- 7 cups bread flour
- 1 and 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 4 cups peanut oil, for deep frying
- 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
Mixing dough for a double batch of gingerbread cookies.
- In a medium-sized bowl, add the warm water, sugar, and yeast and whisk well to combine. Set aside for about 10 minutes, or until the mixture has bubbled up and become foamy.
2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the eggs until smooth. Beat in the vanilla and evaporated milk. Beat in 3 and 1/2 cups of the flour until smooth. Turn the mixer to low speed and slowly pour in the yeast mixture, be very careful and add very slowly; beat until smooth.
3. Add in the butter and beat until incorporated. Finally, beat in the remaining 3 and 1/2 cups of flour and salt. Beat until dough is smooth, about 2 minutes. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for at least 2 hours, or up to 24 hours.
4. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with three layers of paper towels set aside.
5. In a large enameled cast-iron pan, heat 4 inches of oil to 360 degrees (F). Remove the dough from the refrigerator. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out into a 1/4-inch thick rectangle. Cut the dough into 2 and 1/2-inch squares
6. In batches, fry the dough until they puff up and are golden brown, about 1 minute. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the beignets to the prepared baking sheet and repeat with the remaining dough.
7. Dust with powdered sugar and serve at once!
Wishing you all a beautiful weekend.
