We all grew up enjoying Malasadas. I was fortunate that we lived near the neighborhood where our most famous bakery still was and still is today.
We all got excited when we saw that pink box coming thru the front door, we knew what we were about to get treated with.
This short-cut recipe comes from my Home Economics class. We all felt so proud to have made them ourselves, with bread no less.
