Source: Yvette Namias In a 3 quart saucepan bring water and oil to a boil. Add flour and remove from heat. Work dough with a wooden spoon until smooth. Let cool. When cool, add eggs, one at a time, working the batter till smooth after each added egg. Heat about 1 inch of oil in a skillet. Temperature should be about 380 degrees F. When hot, drop in 1 teaspoon of dough at a time, and fry till brown. Prick with a fork, and then turn each ball over. When brown on both sides, remove and drain on an absorbent paper. Serve immediately, coated with sauce (see below). Sauce for Loucoumades: Heat honey in a saucepan. Add sugar and water and mix. Still heating the mixture, cover it with cinnamon (not a thick coat, just sprinkled on to cover) and then mix in lemon juice. Lastly, add brandy. (I prefer a thicker sauce and use much less sugar and water. when you are making it up, before adding the sugar and water, see what you think about the consistency for ladling out over the loucoumades, and for not dripping all over people and the furniture.)
