      I am greek and this recipe is spot on except for one suggestion. When we make these for our festival we simmer the honey in a saucepan next to the pot we fry the dough in. When the dough is ready to come out of the fryer, we plop the browned loukamades into the simmering honey and let them soak for about 3-5 minutes. Then we remove them with a slotted spoon to a plate and dust with the cinnamon.Doing this gets you a crispy outside and a burst of honey when bitten.You will thank me! By the way, must be eaten right away or risk getting soggy!

      My husband first ate these at a Greek Snack Shop in Athens, Greece. We have been searching for an authenic recipe. This is it! They are delicious. The only thing I would suggest is to make them thin when dropping them in the oil.Excellent recipe!
