The Ultimate Malasada!

I think everyone knows what how good a malasada tastes. Especially in Hawaii where I stayed. I love to think about a malasada as a donut with no hole! I love that because when I finish a donut, I always think, “Why is there a hole in a middle, that could have been more donut!” Also, malasadas are very light and buttery so you don’t always feel like you’re just eating bread and sugar. Actually, if you look inside of a malasada, there’s more air than bread. I think that’s interesting because I wonder if that’s the reason everyone loves malasadas. When I take a bite, the butter and sugar collide with each other to fill my mouth with the delicious taste.

Think about all the different foods you could put in or on top of a malasada to make it taste better: strawberry cream, almonds, chocolate sauce, and more butter! Mmmmm, my mouth is watering right now. Imagine all those wonderful ingredients put on top a malasada. As you can guess, a malasada needs to be hot because all these bakery foods taste horrible if they were cold. It would be even more interesting if everyone who comments writes their favorite two ingredients to put on top and if they would like there malasada hot or cold. If you ever get a malasada in Hawaii, there are two recommended places, Champion’s Malasasdas or Leaonard’s Bakery. Champion’s is a lot less crowed, but their malasadas are less buttery. So if you are going for a healthy malasada, go to Champion’s. If you are more on the unhealthy side, go to Leonard’s because their malasadas have a lot of butter on them and you can always order more! Another thing to think about is which shop do you prefer? I prefer Champions because I am trying to eat healthy right now. I know that there are malasada shops everywhere, but I think that Hawaii has the best. If you live in Hawaii, you are in luck because you get to taste the Ultimate Malasada!!!

What might my next post be about? Hint: It’s not about a specific food, but it’s related to it. It might even have a video!

    Nate-I’ve never tried a malasada (and never heard of one!), but you’ve peaked my curiosity. I think I would have it warm and stuffed with blackberries and heavy cream (not whipped).

  2. Malasadas trump doughnuts in my book! I love their warm fillings, especially custard. Dunk it in black coffee… ohhhh… what a fantastic breakfast that would be!

    I think I’d like my malasada with whipped cream and maybe caramel sauce, and definitely hot!
