Ingredients for Loukoumades

500 g full-fat milk
20 g beer yeast fresh
30 g sugar
5 g salt
520 g flour hard

corn oil for frying

Ingredients for Chocolate

100 g dark chocolate with 70% cocoa
100 g cream with 35% fat

honey for serving

For the filling:
Chop the chocolate, heat the cream to 90 ° C and pour it over the chocolate. Mix well until the chocolate melts and make a ganache. Empty the cream in small silicone capsules, if available, and place them in the freezer. If we do not have such capsules, we leave the ganache in the freezer to freeze and with a cornet we make small balls of 1.5-2 cm diameter onto a label and place in the freezer for several hours.

For the loumades (donats)

Place a little of the milk in the heat to gently rock and into it dissolve the yeast by adding sugar and salt. Empty the rest of the milk and stir the flour very well either in the mixer or wire. Leave the mixture in a warm place for at least 1 hour. In a saucepan, pour the oil in a not too strong fire. We take a little dough of the donut and cover with it a frozen ganache ball. We must be careful that the ganache is well covered and does not come out of the dough. To achieve this, we flourish our hands so that we can work better on the dough. Pour the stuffed dumplings into the oil and with a piercing spoon we turn them constantly until they get a golden color. Remove the donuts on draining paper and drain them warm with honey.

I found this fantastic recipe from  Stelios Parliaros
