    New Orleans French Market Doughnuts

    Yields: 24 beignets

    1 cup water

    1 egg

    2 tbsp oil

    3 tbsp Nonfat Dry Milk Powder

    1/2 tsp nutmeg

    1 tsp salt

    3 1/2 cups bread flour

    2 1/2 tsp Yeast

    1/2 cup powdered sugar

    Place all ingredients except sugar in machine. Program for knead and first

    rise and press start. The dough will be sticky at first but will hold its

    shape. After the final cycle, it will be workable. When dough is finished,

    turn the dough out onto a floured surface and let it rest for 10 minutes.

    Roll the dough to a generous 1/4" thick and cut it into 2" squares.

    Cover the squares with a clean towel and let rise for 30 minutes. Add the

    powdered sugar to a medium-size clean paper bag. Lay out paper towels to

    drain the doughnuts. Heat 1 to 1 1/2 " of oil to 375øF. Do not add too many;

    add once or it may cool the oil too much. Gently brush the uncooked squares

    to remove any extra flour. Slide them into the heated oil. When they pop to

    the surface, spoon the hot oil over them constantly until they are puffed.

    Turn the squares and cook until they are a light golden color on both sides.

    It should take 1 to 2 minutes. Cut the first couple of squares in half to be

    sure there is not sticky uncooked dough inside.

    Remove from hot oil with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. While

    warm, drop them, 3 or 4 at a time, into the bag with powdered sugar and

    shake until they are well coated. Serve immediately.

    2 quarts oil for deep frying

    1 (10 ounce) can refrigerated buttermilk biscuit dough

    1 cup confectioners' sugar


    Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F

    Separate out the biscuits and cut a hole in the middle of each one, like you would a doughnut. You can get creative on this part and make different shapes. Just be sure not to make them too thick in any places, or they will not cook all the way through.

    Carefully slide doughnuts into hot oil. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Drain briefly on wire racks placed over baking sheets.

    Place the confectioners' sugar in a bowl and roll the hot doughnuts in the sugar.

    Have some french bread and cook it then you let it cool for a while but not to long then shape it in to the doughnut and and a cake frosting on top anykind that you want. If you do not like french bread any other bread can b used. And remember it is not a perfect susetution.

    I would suggest going to http://www.cooks.com they have the best recipes for a variety of different ones.

    If you are feeling a bit lazy though- you can purchase those biscuits in a can, pop a hole in them, toss them on some hot grease (oil) and brown on each side. Take them out throw them on some sugar, powdered or not, or whatever other type topping and enjoy.
