Recently, I craved for some malasadas.. It’s a Portuguese donuts I ate often in Hawaii, but without a hole in the middle and it’s deep fried. I know.. I know.. fatty, yet, it’s sinfully good!! I found this malasadas recipe from Ono Kine Grindz.
I was very happy when I found it, that I could finally, make malasadas!, But.. hubby got very pessimistic about how it would taste. So, I tried to make them anyway, and guess what?! It tasted just the same!!!, and hubby admitted it!! LOL.., but don’t be disappointed because this malasadas won’t have the round shape since you are not really shaping it anyway. Well, maybe not as delicious as Leonard’s Bakery in Kapahulu, but what can I do being so far away? This will do!
So, if you are on the mainland, and miss the goodness of malasadas, give the recipe a try! You won’t regret it!!
1 1/2 cups Bisquick®
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 cup milk
vegetable oil (for deep frying)
1 cup granulated sugar (or sugar/cinnamon)
brown paper bag
Blend the first 5 ingredients together until smooth and lump free. Set aside. This mixture should be almost the same consistency as pancake batter or a little thicker.
Take 5 slices white bread and remove the crusts and cut each slice of bread into 4 squares.
Then, dip the bread into the batter and drop into hot oil, frying until golden brown. Remove from oil and then place in paper bag filled with sugar. Shake to coat.
