Fat Tuesday

It's Fat Tuesday and I decided to make malasadas tonight. The last time I made these was in 2000 before hubby and I married. A lot of Portuguese bakeries here in NorCal only make these on special days and today is one of them. I come home for lunch everyday so I decided to make the dough today when I home. I used a recipe that my mother had written on a piece of paper. Next time I make these, I may make some with filling like they do at Leonard's on Oahu.
The dough after rising:

The balls of dough in the fryer (above)

Finished product - dipped in cinnamon sugar

These are addicting. Thank goodness I don't make these often!

Ok....I think Leonard's would have some STIFF competition. I don't think I have ever seen them in cinnamon. I love cinnamon!
