Recipe submitted for Zaar World Tour 2006. This recipe is a little different to the one already on Zaar,... Loukoumades are the Greek version of donuts, with honey and cinnamon sauce... Am I making you hungry yet??

I never tried loukoumades before so I have no clue what I was to expect as well. But I really enjoyed this recipe! I used quick rise yeast since I despise waiting for bread to rise!I didnt pour the syrup over them because I did not want them to get soggy like mentioned above. I just dipped the tops into the syrup when it was time to serve. Very good recipe!
- 500 g flour (1 lb 1oz)
- 2 teaspoons yeast
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- warm water, for disolving yeast etc
- oil (for frying)
- 2 cups honey
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 2 cups water
- cinnamon (to garnish)
Directions See How It's Made
- Dissolve the yeast in a little lukewarm water, mix flour and salt in a bowl and slowly add yeast mixture being sure to mix well.
- Slowly add more warm water until you have a medium paste. Cover the bowel with a clean cloth and stand in warm water for about 1 hour. The batter should have doubled in size and formed "bubbles".
- Heat oll and add teaspoonfuls of the batter to the oil, cook until they turn golden brown.
- Remove from the oil and drain on kitchen paper while making the syrup.
- Syrup: boil the honey, sugar, water and cinamom for 10 minutes. Pour the syrup over the honey puffs/ loukoumades and garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon powder. Serve hot.
