Glazed Coffee Beignets



  • 3/4 cup ground dark coffee
  • 3 cups cold water
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 envelope (.25-ounce) active dry yeast
  • 7 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups warm half and half (100-110°F)
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Vegetable oil


  • 4 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Brew coffee on BOLD using 3/4 cup ground dark coffee with 3 cups water. After brewing, set aside 1/2 cup for the glaze.
  2. Beignets: In a large bowl of the stand mixer, combine sugar and yeast. Gradually add 1 ½ cups warm coffee (100-110°F) and let stand 10 minutes or until foamy.
  3. With the stand mixer on LOW, beat in half of the flour, half and half, eggs, butter and salt.
  4. Beat in remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough no longer sticks to the bowl. Remove from bowl and knead for about 2 minutes, adding flour if necessary to make a smooth and soft dough.
  5. Spray a large bowl with nonstick cooking spray. Place the dough into the bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a damp towel. Set in a warm place to rise for 1 hour. Dough will be puffy but it does not have to double in size.
  6. Glaze: While the dough rises, make the glaze. In a medium bowl, combine the confectioners’ sugar, ½ cup coffee and vanilla extract. Cover with plastic wrap until ready to dip the warm beignets.
  7. Heat oil in deep fryer to 350°F. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, and gently roll out to 1/4-inch thickness. Using a pizza cutter, cut dough into 1 1/2-inch squares. Place wire racks on top of paper towel-lined trays. Drop 4 squares of dough at a time into preheated oil. Fry about 1 minute per side. Remove from hot oil and drain on racks.
  8. Dip warm beignets into the glaze, and set onto wire racks to drain excess.
