Steps

Done

For the dough: Add most of the flour (3/4), some salt, the sugar, vegetable oil, olive oil, half of the warm water, and half of the milk to a bowl. Start mixing using a spatula.

2
Done

Add the remaining milk and water, while mixing. Add the remaining flour and continue to mix until you have an even dough. Cover the bowl with a towel and let it rise for 30 minutes.

3
Done

For the loukoumades: Fill the saucepan or deep fryer halfway with vegetable oil and heat it over medium heat.

4
Done

Form the dough into balls (some 1-2 tablespoons of dough per ball) using a scoop and deep-fry them until golden brown or for 3 minutes or so. You'll need to cook them in batches (we've got 24 of them and cooked them in 4 batches)

Serve them on a tray, covered with honey and sprinkled to taste with crumbled walnuts and cinnamon powder.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
