Leonard’s Malasada a Irresistible Hawaiian treat!

Okay I admit I cheated today by having one of Hawaii’s favorite desserts a Malasada. I had a pretty good excuse because some folks came in from the mainland who really wanted to try them so I just had to give in!

This tasty treat originated in Portugal but has become a part of the Hawaiian landscape since 1952 probably because of the huge Portuguese population in Hawaii. Best eaten while steamy hot you can get them plain or with four different fillings. They also have a special filling of the week and today it was Guava.

If you’re on a diet and plan on cheating, you might wanna start with one of these 🙂
