Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ cup 2% milk
  • ½ cup apple cider
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon Stevia In The Raw®
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 granny smith apple, cored and finely diced
  • ½ cup Sugar In The Raw®
  • ¼ cup Stevia In The Raw®
  • ¼ cup water
  • ⅓ cup apple cider
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 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.
  2. 2 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.
  3. 3 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.
  4. 4 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.
  5. 5 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.
  6. 6 In a large heavy pot or deep skillet, heat oil to 365 degrees F.
  7. 7 Drop tablespoons of dough into oil in batches of 8 and cook until golden all over.
  8. 8 Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  9. 9 Repeat with remaining dough.
  10. 10 To serve, drizzle beignets with caramel sauce and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Chef's Notes

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.


  1. I cinnamon-sugar on top Of mine
  2. I used sugar and baked them rather than frying. They were very good - basicallya popover with apples.
  3. 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 - Read more ...
