DIRECTIONS

  • In a small bowl sprinkle yeast over the warm water and let stand to soften (about 5 minutes).
  • Meanwhile, pour milk into a large bowl and add sugar and salt.
  • Stir in yeast mixture and eggs; add butter and beat well.
  • Slowly add 3 cups flour, beating continuously until batter is smooth, sticky, and thick.
  • Add more flour as needed to arrive at correct consistency.
  • Cover bowl with a tea towel and let dough rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk (2 to 3 hours).
  • In a medium saucepan pour oil to a depth of 3 or 4 inches and heat to 360 degrees.
  • While oil is heating, pour some honey into a small saucepan and place over very low heat to warm.
  • Stir batter well.
  • Drop batter from a tablespoon into hot oil and cook, turning spoonfuls in oil, until batter puffs and is golden brown on all sides (about 2 minutes).
  • Remove with a slotted utensil to paper towels to drain briefly, then arrange a layer of the puffs on a platter.
  • Drizzle with warm honey, dust with cinnamon, and top with a second layer of puffs.
  • Continue in this manner until all the puffs are layered and dressed.
  • Serve at once.
