Loukoumathes

Loukoumathes are little donut-like fritters, drizzled with a honey-lemon syrup, sprinkled with cinnamon.
This is a street food, sold by vendors in Greece, often served with yogurt.


Ingredients:
Oil for deep frying

For the fritters:
1package active dry yeast
2cups flour
1cup lukewarm water
1tsp. sugar
1/2tsp. salt

Honey-lemon syrup:
1/2cup honey
juice of 1 lemon

You will also need:
cinnamon

Preparation:

In a bowl combine all fritter ingredients, cover and leave in a warm place about 1-1/2 hrs.
Just before frying,  heat the honey and lemon in a saucepan, until it comes to a boil. Set aside
Heat the oil and drop in 1inch pieces of the dough. The dough is a bit sticky, so I spray cooking spray on my fingertips first.
Fry, turning every few seconds with tongs, until golden brown.
Once all the fritters have been fried, drizzle them with the syrup and sprinkle with a little cinnamon. Best served warm.

                       Leave the batter in a warm place until it looks foamy.
