Easy Beignets


1 cup all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1/8 tsp. kosher salt

2 large eggs, separated

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 tbsp. melted butter

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Vegetable oil, for frying

Powdered sugar, for dusting


In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. In another large bowl, combine egg yolks, sugar, ¼ cup water, melted butter, and vanilla and stir to combine. Fold into dry ingredients until just combined.

In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form, then fold into batter.

In a large pot, heat oil. Drop small spoonfuls of batter into hot oil and fry until golden, about 5 minutes. Make sure to keep the fire on high. Transfer to a paper towel–lined plate.

Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
