What’s on those faces?

So, you may be wondering what was all over the boys faces in my last post…it was cinnamon and sugar.  We tried a new recipe for our Sunday morning breakfast.  It’s called Malasadas or Hawaiian Donuts.  They are fabulous-very light and airy!  They really don’t take long to whip up but you do have to give them time to rise.

3 cups Flour
1/4 cup Sugar
3/4 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Lemon Zest
1 pkg Yeast
1/4 cup Warm Water
4 Eggs
1 cup Warm Whole Milk
2 T Oil plus more for frying
Combine yeast, sugar, warm milk, and warm water.  Allow to sit for 10 minutes.  Stir in Lemon Zest, Eggs, and Oil.  Mix well.  Slowly stir in the flour and salt.  This will be much like a cake batter in consistency.  That’s what you want!
Allow to rise in a warm area for about 45 minutes.  Stir mixture and drop by spoons into hot oil. (Oil should be around 350 degrees)   Fry approximately 30 seconds on each side.  You want them golden brown. 
You can then shake them in a bowl of powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, white sugar…the possibilities are limited only to your imagination!  Enjoy!
