Traditional Greek honey donuts (Loukoumades)

250 gr All purpose flour
1 ½ cups warm water
8 gr active dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
Vegetable oil for frying
Honey of choice
sesame seeds


In a large bowl add the flour, yeast, salt and warm water ( make sure the water is not too hot not to burn the yeast). Mix all the ingredients until well combined. Cover with a towel and keep in a warm place about 1 hour.
Into a medium sized frying pan pour enough vegetable oil to deep fry the loukoumades. Heat the oil to high heat until it begins to bubble. Test if the oil is hot enough by dipping in some of the dough for the loukoumades. If it sizzles the oil is ready.
Dip a tablespoon in some water and spoon out some of the dough into the hot oil. Repeat this procedure until the surface off the pan is comfortably filled. You should dip the spoon in the water every time, so that the batter doesn’t stick on it.
While the loukoumades are frying, use a slotted spoon to push them into the oil and turn them on all sides, until golden brown. Place the loukoumades on some kitchen paper to drain. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
When done, place the loukoumades on a large platter, drizzle with the honey and sprinkle with cinnamon and sesame seeds.
Note: Instead of honey you can use powdered sugar.
