Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup water for steaming
  • powdered sugar, as desired
  • raspberry jam, as desired


  • Large Bowl
  • Whisk
  • Step 1

    In a large bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt and sugar until smooth. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt. Combine until a dough forms.

  • Step 2

    Dust a work surface with additional flour, then flip the dough out onto the prepared surface and knead it until it becomes smooth and elastic, adding more flour as necessary.

  • Step 3

    Shape the dough into a 4 x 5-inch rectangle that is about 1-inch thick, then cut into 4 equal squares. Dust each square with flour until no longer sticky.

  • Step 4

    Spray the Cook & Crisp basket with nonstick cooking spray, then place the basket in the pot. Place the dough squares in the basket. Spray the dough all over with cooking spray.

  • Step 5

    Pour 1/2 cup water in the pot. Close the lid and move the slider to STEAMCRISP. Select STEAM & CRISP, set temperature to 325°F, and set time to 10 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin cooking (PrE will display for approx. 5 minutes as the unit steams, then the timer will start counting down).

  • Step 6

    When cooking is complete, the beignets should be lightly golden brown and puffed.

  • Step 7

    Remove basket from pot. Transfer the beignets to a serving plate and immediately dust with powdered sugar. Serve with raspberry jam for dipping.
