  2. ½ cup flour for all purposes
  3. Half a cup of white sugar
  4. Two tsp of white sugar
  5. Two tsp water

Instructions For Air Fryer Beignets:

  • Set an air fryer to 370 degrees Fahrenheit, or 185 degrees Celsius. Apply nonstick spray to a silicone egg bite mould with seven cavities.
  • In a sizable basin, thoroughly mix flour, 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons white sugar, water, egg yolk, melted butter, baking powder, vanilla, and salt.
  • Using an electric mixer set to medium speed, beat the egg white in a small bowl until soft peaks form. Mix the egg white into the mixture. Using a small-hinged ice cream scoop, transfer batter into the prepared mould. Insert the mould into the basket of the air fryer
  • Fry for ten minutes in the preheated air fryer. Carefully remove the mould from the basket, pop the beignets out, and turn them over onto a round piece of parchment paper.
  • Back in the air fryer basket, place the parchment circle containing the beignets. Cook for a further four minutes. Take out the beignets from the air fryer basket and give them a dusting of powdered sugar.

Expert Advice:

  • In the absence of a stand mixer, you can mix the dough by hand using a wooden spoon and kneading it by hand.
  • Give the dough at least an hour to rest so that it can rise correctly; however, depending on the local climate and altitude, this may take longer.
  • Cut into standard rectangle shapes with a pizza cutter or cookie cutter.
  • Keep the dough pieces apart in the air fryer.
  • Melted butter should be brushed over the cooked air fryer beignets to help the powdered sugar stick and to give them a beautiful brown appearance.
  • If necessary, cook the beignets in batches in the air fryer.
  • To prevent the dough from drying out, cover it with plastic wrap in between batches.
  • The beignets might get mushy if they are stacked.
  • Beignets from an air fryer can be cooked in batches; to keep them warm, arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet and place them in the oven on low. Continue airfrying the remaining beignets.
  • Beignets from the air fryer should cool before being dusted with powdered sugar.

Variations Air Fryer Beignets:

Dip Them: Beignets from the air fryer were meant to be dipped and dunked! Dip them with Greek yoghurt, caramel sauce, melted chocolate, or steaming coffee.
Cinnamon Sugar: Gently dust the beignets with a mixture of sugar and cinnamon, rather than using powdered sugar.
Fill Them: Before dusted with powdered sugar, pipe jam or Nutella into the centre of each beignet.
