Featured Recipe Thursday!!
Aww Featured Recipe Thursday is here. Got to love Thursday’s for Kouzounas Kitchen. Always a new recipe posted on Thursday.
You will be very excited about this new recipe. Something that I love love, and a very special treat to make and enjoy.
Loukoumades- ( Greek dough nut pastry )
- 1 tablespoon yeast
- 1 cup lukewarm water (for yeast)
- 5-12/ cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- warm water
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup honey
- 1 cup water
- cinnamon (I love lots of cinnamon)
- oil for frying
- chopped walnuts
- You can add some fresh lemon juice on top as well.
Dissolve the yeast in water and let set for about 10 minutes. Next sift the flour and salt together. Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and pour in the yeast.
Mix gently, while adding the warm water and a sticky dough forms. Cover the dough with a damp towel and let dough double in size.
Bring the sugar, honey and water to a boil. Boil the mixture for about 6 minutes. Remove the syrup from the heat and keep the syrup warm.
Heat the oil in a deep fryer and use a tablespoon of batter and drop in the hot oil.
(The trick is the catch method.) Thank you to my friend Athina at Kickingbackthepebbles, for this information. Her mother is a pro at loukoumades. Thank you to her mom for these tips.
Serve with the syrup, honey and walnuts on top. Sift the cinnamon over the top and eat!! 🙂
*Many thanks to Athina and her mother!!
