Fried Dough Balls " Loukoumades"


This Island favorite is served as a dessert or for just a snack. They are especially good on a cold wintry afternoon with a nice cup of Greek coffee.


3 lbs. all purpose flour 1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups evaporated milk, undiluted 1 cup sugar
2 tbs. baking powder soy or corn oil for frying
4 tsp. dry yeast dissolved in 1/2 cup warm water ground cinnamon
4 eggs honey
1/2 tsp. salt chopped walnuts - optional

In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, salt, milk, eggs, baking powder, sugar and vanilla. Stir in the yeast and water. Your mixture should be a smooth 'cake-batter' like consistency so add more water if needed. Cover the bowl with a clean cloth and set it aside to rise - about 4 hours.

Heat two inches of oil in a deep skillet or pot. Using a tablespoon, drop the mixture into the oil. Roll them around gently so they fry to a golden brown on all sides. Using a slotted spoon, remove the fried balls to paper towels to drain.

To serve the Loukoumades, arrange the fried balls on a platter or individual serving dishes. Sprinkle them with cinnamon and pour a generous amount of honey over them. If you like, you can top it off with a sprinkling of chopped walnuts.

Susie's Note: I have found that Loukoumades are tastier the second day as they have been soaking up the honey and cinnamon. Delicious!
