Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium saucepan, bring milk, 1/2 cup cider, butter, 1 tablespoon Stevia In The Raw, and 1/2 teaspoon salt to a boil.

  • Immediately add flour and cinnamon and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon on the heat until mixture comes together. Continue stirring until dough is smooth and pulls away from sides of pan.

  • Transfer dough to bowl or stand mixer and cool 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add eggs one at a time, stirring to completely incorporate each egg before adding the next. Dough should be smooth and shiny. Stir in apples. Set aside.

  • In a small saucepan, combine Sugar In The Raw®, 1/4 cup Stevia In The Raw, and 1/4 cup water. Cook, stirring, over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to high and cook syrup until deep amber colored, swirling pan as needed to prevent burning.

  • Remove from heat and slowly add 1/3 cup cider. Stir until smooth. If caramel seems runny, simmer to reduce until thickened and syrupy. Stir in vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Set aside.

  • In a large heavy pot or deep skillet, heat oil to 365 degrees F.

  • Drop tablespoons of dough into oil in batches of 8 and cook until golden all over.

  • Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

  • Repeat with remaining dough.

  • To serve, drizzle beignets with caramel sauce and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Optional Powdered Stevia for Dusting:

Instead of cinnamon, you can combine 1/2 cup Stevia In The Raw(R) and 1 tablespoon cornstarch in a food processor and pulse to create a fine powder. Dust beignets with powdered stevia.

2 stars cause it's my fault that I got my oil too hot and they weren't cooked on the inside. They were only a little doughy though normally wouldn't have been a throw away batch but the taste was awful. So maybe if I cooked them better the taste of apple cider wouldn't have been so overpowering! Maybe. It called for a lot! Read More
