In Hawaii, bringing a box of hot malassadas to the office for co-workers on a Monday morning all but guarantees hero status for the rest of the day. Malassadas are a traditional Portuguese confection—a ball of sweet yeast dough, deep fried gold then coasted with sugar. Our HAWAII Magazine Facebook ohana had an overwhelming fondness for malassadas from Honolulu’s Leonard’s Bakery, but you’ll find the treat statewide. Some folks like ‘em filled with everything from sweet custard to haupia to lilikoi creams. Us? We like ‘em just fine the traditional way.
