In a large bowl, mix 4 ½ cups flour and the salt. Dissolve the yeast in ½ cups warm water, together with 1 tablespoon honey and 1 tablespoon flour.
Make a well in the center of the flour and pour in the yeast mixture. Add the remaining 1 ¾ cups water. Mix using a spatula, until you get a sticky, loose batter. If the texture of the batter isn't like this, add more water to achieve the right consistency. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let raise for 2 hours, or until doubled in size.
Fill half of the pot with oil and heat to 375°F (180°C).
Now you need to shape your Loukoumades. There are two ways to do that.
The first one. Oil your hands, take a handful of the batter and clench your fist around it. Squeeze out a knob of the batter between your fingers, scoop it up with an oiled tablespoon and drop into the hot oil.
The second one. Oil two tablespoons. Lift a little bit of the batter on one and push it off into the hot oil using another one.
The puffs are ready when they rise to the top and are light golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and dry on paper towels.
Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with cinnamon and walnuts. Enjoy!
