Malasadas are one of the all time favorite snacks at community functions and fund-raisers. If you make this, you will rapidly become popular with all of your local friends. A non-traditional (read haole) way of preparing this is to add nutmeg or cinnamon to the sugar mixture that is used to coat the maladsadas.
1 package yeast (1 T) 1 teaspoon sugar 1/4 cup warm water 6 cups flour 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup melted butter or margarine 1 cup water 1 cup evaporated milk 6 eggs 1 quart vegetable oil (to cook) extra sugarProcedure
Note: If the malasadas have a tendency to come out with the center still doughy, turn the heat down on the oil which will allow them to cook longer.
