While commonly associated with Hawaii, malasadas are actually Portuguese donuts, which are fried up until golden brown, rolled in sugar or cinnamon-sugar, then sometimes filled with delicious fillings like haupia (coconut pudding), chocolate, or vanilla custard. Light and fluffy on the inside and fried to perfection, if you haven't had a Portuguese donuts yet, add 'em to the list because they're a definite must!

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 quarts vegetable oil for frying
  • 2 cups white sugar

Directions

  1. Dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in 1/4 cup warm water; set aside.
