The recipe is my Grandmother's handed down to my Mom and me. It is a Portuguese recipe from way back. The "donuts" are delicious. Traditionally they are made on "Fat Tuesday", but my Mom loved making them anytime for family and friends. Malassadas are popular in Kauai. They are an import from the Portuguese that immigrated there to work in the sugar cane many year ago.
