You will find that most λουκουμάδες recipes use yeast and require a rising time. Our family recipe was always made with baking powder instead. Delicious!
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 level tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup milk (You may also use water.)
oil for frying
honey for drizzling
Sift the flour with the baking powder and salt into a bowl.
Add sugar, milk, vanilla extract and the eggs,and mix with a wooden spoon until smooth.
Heat 2-3 inches of oil in a saucepan or deep frying pan to just below the smoke point (medium to medium-high on most stoves).
When the oil is hot, drop the batter by teaspoonfuls into the oil and fry until golden on all sides.
Place on serving platter.
As you remove each batch from the oil, drizzle with honey and dust generously with cinnamon. Serve warm.
