Preparation / Directions:
Dissolve yeast in 2 tablespoons of the lukewarm milk. Add remaining milk, sugar, egg and lukewarm melted butter.
Sift flour and salt into a warm bowl and gradually stir in mixed liquids. Beat until smooth and continue beating for 1 minute. Cover with folded cloth and leave in a warm place for 1-1/2 hours until batter doubles in bulk with bubbles on the surface.
Stir well then drop teaspoonfuls into deep, hot oil (190C or 375F) - do 4 to 5 at a time. Turn puffs to brown evenly and remove with a slotted spoon (each puff takes about a minute to cook.)
Drain on absorbent paper and pile on to a plate. Drizzle each layer with warm honey and sprinkle with cinnamon. Serve hot.
