We are going to make beignets using healthy canola oil that is no transfats and no saturated fats.
  Yeast 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Warm water 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Hot water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Canola oil 2 Tablespoon
  Sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Evaporated milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Egg 1 , beaten
  All purpose flour 3 1⁄2 Cup (56 tbs)
  Canola oil 2 Cup (32 tbs) (For Deep Frying)
  Icing sugar 1 Tablespoon

In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.

In large bowl, combine hot water, canola oil, sugar, salt, and evaporated milk. Stir to dissolve sugar, then add dissolved yeast and egg. Stir in 2 cups flour and beat until smooth. Add the remaining flour to make soft dough. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for up to 24 hours in the refrigerator.

Roll out chilled dough to 1/8 inch thickness on a floured board; cut into 2-inch squares. Deep fry at 375°F (190 C) for 2 - 3 minutes until lightly browned on both sides. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle generously with icing sugar. Serve warm
