Greek Honey Puffs (LOU-KOU-MAH'-THAYS)

1 package dry or 1 oz. fresh Yeast
2 cups warm Water
1 teaspoons Sugar
4 cups Flour
1 teaspoon Salt
or vegetable oil Olive Oil
and cinnamon Honey


Dissolve yeast in 1 cup warm water. Add 1 teaspoon sugar and 1 1/2 cups flour;

beat batter until smooth, cover and leave in a warm place.

When its size is doubled, add remaining water, salt and enough flour to make a thick batter.

Cover again and allow to rise until it begins to bubble- about 1 1/2 hours.

Heat plenty of oil in a deep frying pan. When it begins to smoke,

drop in the dough in small spoonfuls, about 10 at a time.

Fry over a moderately slow heat until puffed and golden brown;

take them out with a perforated spoon and pour honey over the fried dough.

Sprinkle with cinnamon and serve hot. DELICIOUS!
