- 1 cup Sourdough Starter
- 3 cups unbleached flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tsp kosher salt (do not use iodized salt)
- 2 TBSP melted butter
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- canola oil for frying
- powdered sugar for dusting
- In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine all the ingredients.
- Knead on low speed for 5 minutes.
- Place in a lightly greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and allow to sit on the counter for 4 hours.
- Place the bowl in the fridge, and allow to ferment for up to 48 hours (the longer you let it sit the better it will be!)
- When you are ready to make the beignets, heat a large skillet with about 2" of canola oil in it until hot (about 325 degrees)
- Lightly flour the counter.
- Roll the dough out into a large rectangle about 1/4" thick.
- Cut the dough into squares.
- Working with 4-6 squares at a time (don't crowd your skillet!) drop the dough into the hot oil, flipping them often until they are golden brown and puffed. This will literally take a few seconds, so don't walk away!
- Transfer to a cooling rack set over a baking sheet for a few seconds and then dust with powdered sugar.
- Repeat with remaining dough.
- Enjoy while they are still warm!!!
