                                                     Zeppoles with Yogurt a.k.a Loukoumades






Remember my post about my traditional recipe for Zeppoles a.k.a Loukoumades. Well the other day I received a new tip from someone who has more experience than I in making loukoumades and of course I had to give it a try. Instead of using just water you, you can add yogurt. They come out soft and super delicious and if you have leftovers, and allow them to sit overnight they are still soft the next morning to enjoy them with your cup of coffee.  KALE OREXI!










Ingredients:

Leaven:

Ingredients:
  • 180 grams flour
  • 1 1/2 envelopes of yeast
  • 260 grams luke warm water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda


For the leaven:
Add water and yeast mix until the yeast has dissolved. Then add flour and mix, next add your salt and your baking soda. Set it aside for an hour. Small bubbles should be forming immediately.

                                                             

For Zeppole mixture: 

Add your yogurt and flour. Water and flour should be added little at a time until you have reached the desired amount and  your dough should has elasticity. Proceed with your loukoumades as in the previous post.( Check link above) 


TIP:  If you could like you can add 1 teaspoon of honey it gives the loukoumades a rich golden color.
