Langites

  • 1 lb flour
  • 1 packet yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1.5 c warm water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp ouzo
  • oil (corn, cooking oil)
  • honey, nuts, powdered sugar, cinnamon—toppings

dissolve sugar in warm water and stir in yeast and let sit until yeast dissolves.  stir in flour, salt and ouzo—should be like pancake batter. Let rise until bubbles form.  heat 1 inch of oil in pan (I use soup pot to have high walls to lessen splattering)…a deep fryer could be used if you have one.

Spoon batter into hot oil, spin langites around until toasty and puffy.  drain and set on paper towels as batches are completed.  serve hot drizzled with honey, sprinkled w cinnamon and walnuts, or just sprinkled w powdered sugar.

from Andromahi ❤   she would make these on occasions of great news—like when the babies were born :-).  or we would get them on summer nights at the beach (gialtra) while strolling in the village.  Also called loukoumades.    They are like beniges (sp?) or sopapillas.
