Corfu Recipes - Loukoumades
This page gives you the opportunity to re-create some of your favourite Corfiot taverna recipes at home. This time, Loukoumades - Greek style doughnuts.
Ingredients - 2 cups flour. 4 teaspoons yeast. 1 teaspoon salt. Oil for deep frying. Honey. Cinnamon.
Instructions - Thin the yeast in half a cup of warm water. Mix the flour with the salt and put it in a deep bowl. Add the yeast and an extra cup of warm water and mix well until you have a uniformly thin paste. Cover and leave this mixture in a cool spot for one and a half hours until it rises and forms bubbles under the surface. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan and pour in the batter mix, one large spoonful at a time. The batter will form round dumplings. When they darken a little remove them with a strainer or ladle. Pour honey over them and sprinkle with cinnamon.
