What are the ingredients I need for this recipe? 

You would need to get one and a half cups of warm water, between a hundred and ten and a hundred and fifteen degrees. Then get a two-third cup of granulated sugar, then get two and a quarter actively dry yeast, then get two huge eggs which are stored at room temperature, then get a cup of evaporated milk, then get two and a half teaspoons of pure vanilla extract, then get seven cups of bread flour, then get five tablespoons of butter that doesn’t have any salt in it and then four cups of oil which you would need for deep frying. Then two cups of confectioners sugar. 

Instructions you need for this New Orleans Beignets Recipe 

Put warm water, yeast, sugar, and then whisk it very well in a large bowl. Leave them for ten minutes till things look foamy and all bubbled up. 

Inside the bowl, beat your eggs, add in evaporated milk and vanilla. Add your flour till things are smooth. Turn your mixer and reduce the speed. Add your butter and mix. Beat in your salt and flour. Don’t stop beating till your dough is cohesive and smooth enough for about two minutes. Cover your bowl properly using plastic wrap and refrigerate it for around two hours. 

Arrange your rimmed baking sheets using three paper towels layers. Then set them all aside. 

Using a vast enameled cast iron pan, you should heat about four inches of your oil to get to three hundred and sixty degrees. Remove your dough from the refrigerator and put it on a floured surface with a quarter-inch thick rectangle. 

Using batches, you should then fry your dough till it increases inside and look brown. After around a minute, use a slotted spoon, transfer all of your beignets to your baking sheet, and then continue repeating the process with all the remaining dough. 

You should then dust using sugar that is powdered and then serve it all at the same time.
