Kaikanas: A traditional donut, particularly honored in a little Limassol village!

* NOTE: All the tributes of All About Limassol (as the Official Guide of Limassol) aim to ONLY highlight the special advantages of this wonderful city, so that everyone can be aware of the unique Experiences it offers. Under no circumstances do they have any promotional or nominal value, nor do they serve the interests of Companies, Municipalities, Organizations or Individuals.

During the days of the harvest, when the locals of the vineyards ran to help altogether in the harvesting of a vineyard, the owner would always have one particular responsibility: to serve hot, filling and delicious kaikanas.

Kaikanas is the proof that the donut known to all of us, can get even better. It is a special delicacy, made with a mixture of milk, eggs and flour, which is then cooked in hot oil until it turns into a golden bite.

At  Fini fairs you will find the opportunity to try this special dessert.

The culmination of the taste, however, comes with a coating with epsima, giving its distinctive taste and aroma to the dessert. Many people prefer kaikana with icing sugar, but the epsima coating is what really makes the difference.
