In a large bowl combine the flour, warm water, yeast, salt and baking powder and mix until your dough is smooth.
Let rise for approximately 1-2 hours or until dough has tripled in size. In warm weather the dough will rise more quickly.
Once your dough has risen, heat up oil in a pot.
Once heated, cover the palm of your hand in a thin layer of sunflower oil and scoop a small amount of dough into the palm of your hand.
Take a tablespoon and dip it in the oil, before squeezing the dough onto the spoon and placing it into the pot.
The loukoumades should float on the top of the oil, therefore, ensure you turn it while cooking in order for it to cook through evenly.
When the turn a golden-brown colour, remove from pot and place on a dish covered in paper towelling to drain excess oil.
Heat up honey, Nutella or desired topping and pour over the donuts.
