Apple Cider Beignets with Butter-Rum Caramel Sauce


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
  • 1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

  • For beignets:
    • About 8 cups vegetable oil, divided
    • 2 Golden Delicious apples
    • 1 3/4 cups self-rising cake flour, divided
    • 1 large egg
    • 3/4 cup sparkling apple cider
    • Confectioners sugar for dusting

    Sparkling Cider, Rather Than Sugar, Gives Our Batter Its Touch Of Sweetness. The Cider Also Ramps Up The Apple Flavor And Adds To The Beignets'...
