Hawaii-Style Easy Malasadas

THE ORIGINAL MALASADA

Malasadas are one of the “must-have” local foods of Hawaii so make sure you try one when visiting the island of Oahu. It is a light, fluffy, delicious deep fried dough ball rolled in sugar.

They were introduced by Portuguese immigrants who worked in the plantation fields not too long ago.

Growing up on Oahu, our family would visit Leonard’s Bakery, the home of the original malasada, on weekends or buy them by the dozen whenever there was a potluck or family gathering. To date, almost every family in Hawaii still does the same.
