Loukoumas is a Greek fried pastry, similar to a doughnut.



  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, salt, milk, eggs, baking powder, sugar and vanilla.
  2. Mix the yeast and water together.
  3. Add the yeast mixture to the other ingredients and stir. The mixture should look like smooth cake batter.
  4. Cover the bowl and leave it for four hours.
  5. Place five centimetres of oil in a pot and heat it up.
  6. With a tablespoon drop the mixture in and roll. Loukoumades should be sphere-shaped, fried and should look golden or brown from all sides.
  7. After they are fried, remove them and pour honey over them. Use the cinnamon for extra flavour. You can also use sesame seeds for flavour.
