One of our favorite traditional Greek desserts is loukoumades. Loukoumas (single) is the Greek version of a doughnut; it's a bite-sized, sweet honey puff which is deep fried until crispy. For us, loukoumades are a part of our culture and family menus, as our parents used to serve this dessert after the family dinner. The dessert of loukoumades is especially great during the winter months, as it is traditionally served hot, but can be enjoyed at any time of the year. Once you try these delicious honey doughnuts you will instantly understand their hype!
