Sweet Potato Beignets

By:

Sweet Potato Beignets

Sweet Potato Beignets (fried doughnuts) are just the right combination of sophisticated sweetness and deep-fried crunch. This was the recipe that changed my mind about sweet potatoes!

Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed
  • oil, enough to deep fry
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar
Instructions
  1. Sift dry ingredients into a bowl.
     
  2. Add egg yolks to milk, mix well.
     
  3. Add the sweet potatoes and mix well.
     
  4. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into the batter.
     
  5. Heat oil until very hot.
     
  6. Drop batter by spoonful into deep oil.
     
  7. Beignets will float and pop over when done. Remove when light brown.
     
  8. Sprinkle with the powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar.
