An easy malasada recipe using Bisquick…for all of you cheaters looking for a “sweet” shortcut.
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 cup milk
5 slices bread, crusts removed
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.
