Steps

1
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 the milk to a bowl. Start mixing using a spatula.

2
Done

Mix the remaining warm water with the yeast and add it to the mixture, too. 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)

5
Done

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.

What is the rising/leavening agent? Recipe said cover and let rise 30 minutes – how can that happen with no yeast or baking powder?

You’re right, JO! We used active dry yeast. We’ve made the necessary changes in the ingredient list and the steps (for the video it’s too late). Thanks a lot!

You definitely can, Millie. And you don’t have to warm the honey the next day. By heating it over 37-40 degrees Celsius (98-104 Fahrenheit), the honey loses some of its most healthy qualities. So, if you care about those, skip heating it.

Question: The recipe States flour–what kind. I assume plain since yeast is involved? Thank you for your time.
