If you've always wondered how to make donuts, you will find this a very easy homemade donut recipe.
Loukoumades have always been a popular sweet treat in Greece.
In the streets off Omonia Square and Syntagma Square in Athens there used to be several wonderful sweet shops serving little plates of delectable Loukoumades dripping in honey syrup, a welcome respite for the tired shoppers and passers by.
250g plain flour
1 -2 teaspoons cinnamon
Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl, add the salt and mix the dried yeast into the flour.
When the doughnut batter is about ready, first make the syrup by adding all the ingredients into a small saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer for about 5 minutes or until lightly thickened.
To deep fry the donuts you can use a deep-fryer or a deep saucepan.
Serve about 4 or 5 of the hot loukoumades on a small plate, drizzle the honey syrup over them and then sprinkle a light dusting of cinnamon over the top.
