French Crullers Are Better Than Donuts

If you like donuts, you’ll be completely obsessed with French crullers.


  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cups of canola grape seed
  • 1 c all-purpose flour
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 c water
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt


Get parchment paper and cut 12 square pieces with a size of 3 inches.

Cook the salt, butter and granulated sugar in a saucepan. When they start boiling, include the flour. Turn down the heat and stir constantly for 4 to 5 minutes.

Take the dough out of the pan and place it in a bowl. Get a mixer and stir it for 2 minutes at low speed.

Now, add the eggs, one by one while also mixing all the time. When you’re done, add the egg whites again and mix.

Get a pastry bag and add a star tip on it. Pour the pastry into the bag, and you can now make the French crullers on the pieces of parchment paper.

Get a pot and heat oil in it to 350 F degrees. Add 2 to 3 of the crullers together with the parchment paper in the oil. Leave them in for 1 1/2 minute per side.

When the crullers are done place them on a paper towel for the extra oil.

For the glaze mix milk, vanilla extract and powdered sugar.
