| September 13, 2008 | 3 Comments

An easy malasada recipe using Bisquick…for all of you cheaters looking for a “sweet” shortcut.

1 1/2 cups Bisquick
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
5 slices bread, crusts removed
peanut or vegetable oil, for frying
2 tablespoons coarse or turbinado sugar

Combine first 5 ingredients to make a batter.  Remove crusts from bread and slice each into fourths.

Dip bread into the batter and fry in hot oil (in a deep skillet or fryer), a few at a time, turning only once. When golden brown, remove to drain on paper towels.

In a clean brown paper bag, put 1/4 cup sugar. Toss malasadas in bag until well coated. (Alternatively, roll in sugar on a plate.)

Variation: Add 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg or mace to sugar for rolling.

Serve warm and devour.
