  • 2 cups lukewarm water
  • 1 cup lukewarm milk
  • 2 packages dry yeast
  • 4 cups flour (or enough until a thick, pancake-like batter consistency is reached)
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 cup honey (greek thyme is best, and authentic)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • finely chopped walnuts (optional)


  1. Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm water.
  2. Put it along with the remaining dough ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix well until a smooth batter is obtained.

  4. Heat the oil for frying in a saucepan on the stove until very hot.
  5. Dip a teaspoon into oil to coat and spoon out some dough into the hot oil.
  6. Repeat until there are enough fritters to comfortably fill the surface area of the saucepan, without overcrowding.
  7. Dip the spoon in oil, every time the dough starts to stick on it.
  8. Fry loukoumades in very hot oil until golden brown, pushing them into the oil with a slotted spoon and transfer to a serving dish lined with kitchen paper for them to drain.
  9. Keep making more fritters in this way.
  10. When done, put them on a large platter and pour hot honey syrup over them and lightly dust with cinnamon.
  11. Sprinkle them with chopped walnuts and sesame seeds.
