Loukoumades  (Honey Donuts)

How To Make

Recipes from Europe

These Greek Donuts - known as Loukoumades - are light, crispy, and coated in a delicious honey syrup. They're a popular fried street food!

What You'll Need

Flour Milk & Water Instant Yeast & Sugar Salt & Olive Oil Cooking Oil Honey Orange Juice & Zest Cinnamon Pistachios & Walnuts

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Then add the lukewarm water, milk, and olive oil.

Whisk everything together until you have a slightly runny batter. It should resemble pancake batter. Cover the bowl and let rest 1-2 hours.

Meanwhile, prepare the syrup by adding honey, orange juice, orange zest, and the ground cinnamon to a saucepan.

Bring the mixture to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes as it thickens. Remove the pot from heat and set it aside to cool.

Once the batter is ready, heat the oil in a medium sauce pan to 320 degrees Fahrenheit. When the oil sizzles, it means it's hot enough.

Using an oil-covered tablespoon, squeeze dough through your hand into a ball, and let is slide onto the spoon and into the hot pot with oil.

Cook the donut in batches until golden brown (2-3 minutes), then transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels.

Finally, dunk the little donuts into the prepared syrup and place them on a plate. Sprinkle with chopped pistachio and walnuts. Enjoy!
