Instructions
  1. For the dough, in the mixers bowl add the water and yeast. Stir with a fork and wait for 5 minutes, until the yeast dissolves completely.
  2. In the same bowl, add the rest of the ingredients for the dough and whisk at high speed (for about 2 minutes) until the mixture becomes a smooth batter.
  3. Cover the bowl with some plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 30 minutes. Stir the dough well, cover, and let rise 30 more minutes.
  4. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Oil should be about 2 inches deep enough to deep fry the loukoumades. Test if the oil is hot enough by dipping in some of the dough for the loukoumades. If it sizzles the oil is ready.
  5. Scoop up about 2 tablespoons of dough per puff with the wet spoon, drop it into the wet palm of your hand, and roll it back into the spoon to create a round shape. Do not overhandle the puffy, soft dough. Drop the dough balls into the hot oil in batches, wetting the spoon each time you make a dough ball, so that the batter doesn't stick on it.
  6. Repeat this procedure until the surface off the pan is filled and there is space to turn them.
  7. Use a slotted spoon to push them into the oil and turn them on all sides, until golden brown. Fry in the hot oil until golden brown on the bottom, and roll them over to cook the other side, 2 to 3 minutes per batch.
  8. Place the loukoumades on some kitchen paper towels to drain the oil. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
  9. Mix honey and 1/2 cup of water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Turn off the heat and let the honey syrup cool.
  10. When done, place the loukoumades on a large platter, drizzle with the honey syrup and sprinkle with cinnamon and chopped walnuts.
