  • -In a large bowl, stir together the yeast, warm water and the pinch of sugar; let stand until it is a slightly foamy (approximately 5 minutes).

    - Add the other 1/3 cup of sugar, milk, vanilla, eggs, oil and salt; stir it all until it is smooth.

    - Mix in about half of the flour and continue stirring it, slowly adding the remaining flour.

    -Turn the dough onto a floured surface when it is firm enough and knead for approximately 6-8 minutes.

  • - Add more flour if you need it to form firm elastic dough.
    - Place dough in a greased bowl and cover.

    - Let dough sit covered until it rises and doubles (approximately 1 hour).

    -Lightly deflate the dough and pinch off a piece the size of a golf ball.

  • - On a floured surface, use a rolling pin to roll out the small ball of dough into an oval shape. Put it aside and cover it with a tea towel while you continue to do the same with the remaining dough.

    -Heat approximately 4 inches of oil in a deep-fryer (375 degrees) before placing the flattened dough into the oil. Stretch them into ovals and thin them and enlarge them. Place the tails in the oil.

  • Fry in the oil, turn them once until the tails are a deep brown (this process usually takes about 1 to 2 minutes per side); carefully remove the tail from the oil and let it drain on a paper towel.

    - Place left over sugar in a large bowl and add the cinnamon. Toss the beaver tail into the bowl while it is still hot. Shake off any extra sugar and cinnamon mixture.
