Ingredients edit

Procedure edit

  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, salt, milk, eggs, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon, 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 4 hours.
  5. Place 5 cm of oil in a pot and heat it up.
  6. With a tablespoon, drop the batter in and roll. Loukoumades should be sphere-shaped once fried and should look golden or brown from all sides.
  7. After they are fried, remove them from the oil and pour honey over them. Use the cinnamon for extra flavour. You can also use sesame seeds for flavour.
