PORTUGAL: Malasadas

A malasada is a Portuguese doughnut. The traditional Portuguese malasadas don’t contain holes or any type of filling, but some variations do, especially the ones made in Hawaii. Malasadas are often eaten on Mardi Gras – the day before Ash Wednesday.

These Portuguese doughnuts have a fervent fanbase in Hawaii.
