The honey balls of bliss - Loukumades


Taking a detour from the usual box of cookies and brownies, this new year we are all about trying new things. That’s where Loukumades, (pronounced as ලුකුමාදෙස්) come in. With a history of bakers in the family and her love for all things dessert, Shamha Fazloon, launched Loukumades 6 months ago.

To those of you wondering what exactly this is, Loukumades are more commonly known as ‘Greek-doughnuts’. These bite sized crispy honey balls are traditionally served in hot honey syrup. While Shamha does deliver the authentic experience to the market, she has also perfected an additional twist in taste by adding a number of other flavors as well.

The Loukumades arrived in a box that screamed classy and a million bucks. This goes to say that these treats will make the perfect gift not just for a loved one, but even an important colleague or boss. The little doughnuts came in crispy and warm with flavor oozing out of each bite.

The flavors that I tried out were

  • The signature (with golden syrup)
  • Biscoff
  • White Chocolate Oreo
  • Nutella Rocher

My favorite flavor was hands down, the Biscoff Loukumade. It wasn’t too sweet and had the right amount of flavor which paired exceptionally well with the crispy doughnut. Personally, I found the entire experience too sweet to devour in one sitting. So, word of advice, take your time and don’t let greed get the best of you. Regardless of how tempting these little treats of goodness can look and even smell!

All in all, this unique dessert is sure to give your sweet tooth the ultimate new year experience.
