makes about 3 dozen

1{1/4-oz} envelope active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water {105 to 115 degrees}
3 Tbsp sugar, divided
4 1/4 to 4 1/2 cups bread flour
1/2 tsp table salt
1 cup whole buttermilk
1 very ripe banana, pureed
{about 1/2 cup}
1 egg, lightly beaten
Vegetable oil
2 cups powdered sugar
2 Tbsp ground cinnamon

Combine the yeast, the water & 1 tsp of the granulated sugar
in a glass measuring cup.
Allow the mixture to stand for 5 minutes or until it begins to bubble.

Add 4 cups of the bread flour, the salt & the remaining sugar
to the bowl of an electric stand mixer.
Run a whisk through it.

Add the yeast mixture, the buttermilk, the banana & the egg to the bowl.
Beat on low speed w/ the dough hook attachment & blend until smooth.
Gradually add the remaining 1/4 to 1/2 cup of flour & beat 3 to 5 minutes or until a sticky dough forms.

the dough will be sticky & shaggy in nature
i like to add the last bit of flour at the end
kneading it in by hand on a pastry board

although you can achieve the same results in the mixer
the method is up to your comfort level

Transfer to a lightly greased bowl & turn the dough so that the top is oiled.
Cover w/ plastic wrap & chill 4 to 24 hours.

Pour the oil to a depth of about 1 1/2 inches in a Dutch oven.
Heat the oil to 350 degrees.

attach a candy thermometer to the side of the pot to keep a watch on the oil temp

Turn the dough out onto a floured surface.
Roll to 1/4-inch thickness.
Cut into 1 1/2 x 3-inch rectangles w/ a sharp chef knife.

your can make these any size you’d like
sometimes i cut squares & sometimes the cuts look more like triangles

don’t worry about it
a variety of shapes is interesting

Fry the dough, in batches, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes on each side
or until golden brown.
Drain on a wire rack.

Combine powdered sugar & cinnamon.
Dust liberally over the warm beignets.

Combine additional powdered sugar & cinnamon, if necessary to cover all of the beignets.

{testing notes}

the rolling

i divide the dough into quarters using a bench scraper
& work w/ one piece at a time

keep the remaining dough covered w/ plastic wrap
until you’re ready to roll & cut

the frying

if you feel comfortable enough w/ frying
you can use a 10-inch cast iron skillet
simply fill halfway up the sides w/ oil
test the oil temp now & again w/ a thermometer
