Diples (Dipples) is a deep fried Greek pastry which is a cross between a doughnut and a funnel cake.

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 2 minutes

Total Time: 27 minutes


  • 2 cups honey
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3/4 cups flour
  • 4-1/3 cups vegetable oil, divided
  • cinnamon
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts or almonds), toasted


Boil first 3 ingredients for 10 to 15 minutes. Keep on low burner until ready to use. Combine eggs and vanilla. Add flour slowly, kneading lightly. Add 1/3 cup oil and mix well. Separate dough into five sections. Keep unused portion covered to keep from drying. Roll out each section like rolling a pie, thin. With pastry wheel, or paring knife, cut into strips 2 inches wide and the length of pastry. Roll on a fork to form circle*. Heat oil in fryer. Drop into hot oil. Remove when dough is light brown and puffed. Drain on paper towels. Dip in reserved hot syrup; sprinkle with cinnamon and nuts.

*The dough strips are sometimes formed into circles with 2 forks after they are put in the hot oil.
