Quick honey donuts - Loukoumades


  • In a bowl add the yogurt, the milk, the sugar, the vanilla extract, the salt, the lemon zest, and whisk well until the sugar is dissolved.  
  • Add the flour, the baking powder, and whisk until the mixture is homogenized.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set it aside for 30 minutes.
  • Place a pot with plenty of sunflower oil over medium-high heat. Ideally, you want the oil to reach 170ο C (340ο F). Add the rest of the sunflower oil into a mug along with a spoon.
  • Take a little of the dough with your hands and squeeze it in your palm. The mixture that will come out between your thumb and index finger, take it with a spoon. This way, you will help the dough slip into the oil.
  • Fry in batches for 4-5 minutes, until they are nicely golden and cooked through. Remove and transfer to paper towels.
  • Drizzle with honey and cinnamon.
