» Malasadas from The Violence Worker!
If you come to Hawaii, and specifically Honolulu, you have to try a hot malasada! A malasada is a pastry of Portuguese origins. There is a sizeable Portuguese population here in Hawaii and the place to get malasadas is at [Read More]

Renee

looks yummy! did you have all 6 by yourself? ; ) that must have been quite a sugar-rush! : )

elise

I can't stand it. More Death-to-low-carb-diet delectables. I could eat the whole box right now.
:-)

Reid

Renee,

Although I could probably eat all six by myself, and in one sitting, I did not! =) You could try to make the recipe I listed to get the effect of what it actually tastes like. After this is cooked, you wouldn't be able to even tell that it was bread!

Elise,

I sure wanted to eat the whole box, but unfortunately for me (or should I say fortunately??), I didn't!

Min

Heh heh me too.I can easily rival a guy's appetite but sadly i'm still not able to put on much weight:\

Reid

Min,

How lucky for you that you aren't able to gain any weight! As for me, I can feel the pounds coming on as soon as I even look at food! =) And let me tell you...I love to eat!

toru

oooh...it looks good...yum

Creen

Aloha e Reid!
Another quick malasada recipe (this is super fast, yet super cheating) is to get a can of Pillsbury biscuits and deep fry each piece individually. As soon as they come out of the fryer, roll in sugar. Voila! I know, it's not the same, and there is that strange aftertaste that just comes from anything frozen. But in a pinch, they're real good, esp. on the mainland where there's a huge lack of malasada joints.

Reid

Toru,

Thanks for dropping by. They are very yummy and because they are so light, you can easily eat a lot of them without realizing it!

Creen,

Does it also come out light and fluffy? Normally, the biscuits are a bit dough-y right? I only use the recipe above because I learned it years ago...I think I was in the 4th grade! You can't even tell that there's bread in the middle once it's been cooked.

Pauline

Hui, Thanks Brada!
I am way out here in Yuma, AZ and miss da' malasadas!! Las Vegas having their big
hoolauleia on Sep 17th at Lorenzo Park and the weekend after that, San Diego having theirs at the Mission Park. Bring someone to cook!!!
Please...

Reid

Hi Pauline,

Thanks for stopping by. I would cook myself if I could stay in Vegas long enough. I'll be there for Labor Day weekend and then I'm gone. I'll let the folks over at Leonard's know that they need to open up an outpost on the mainland. How's about a Leonard's Junior truck parked outside the Cal?

Pauline

Don't forget the hoolauleia on the last weekend of September in California, Mission Park!!!

Reid

Hi Pauline,

Welcome to the site! I would love to go to the Ho'olaulea, but I'll be very busy at work. Just got back after a week away and I was so missing all of the food here. Thanks for stopping by!

Stephen Garguilo

Aloha!!! How's it going everyone at Leonards Bakery. You guys make the best malasadas in the islands. I miss Hawaii and your wonderful malasadas. I'm stationed way down on the east coast at Pope Air Force Base. My wife and I have been making a whole bunch of malasadas for ourselves and the other local Hawaiians up here. We've probably tried about 3 or 4 different recipes and no one can match your's. It's alright if you have to protect your secret, but we were wondering whats the secret to making the malasadas light and fluffy. There's about a half a dozen of us up here, and thats not even including all the people from Hawaii in the army at Fort Bragg. We sure do miss your malasadas. Well thanks for all the great memories. Thanks Leonards Bakery.

Hazzit Stephen,

Thanks for dropping by. I'm not sure that I can speak on behalf of Leonard's, but if anyone has a secret, I'd like to know as well. Where are you from originally? Leonard's malasadas are the best, hands down.

Hi Kalona,

Thanks for dropping by.

I'm glad to see you found some malasadas in San Diego. I'll be sure to check it out next time I'm in the area. I think Champion also makes haupia malasadas, but I can't be certain. Maybe I should pay them a visit.

Thanks again for stopping by.

sandy

Reid

Hi Sandy,

Thank you so much for dropping by!

I used to have birthday cakes from Leonard's from time to time, and you're right, the buttercream frosting is really good. When I last passed by the shop, I believe they have a new sign now. =(

I must stop by and take a photo of it sometime.

Thanks for sharing your memories with us. I hope to hear from you again!

I JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT THIS IS THE FIRST PLACE I WENT WHEN I WAS ON VACATION IN HAWAII. WE NOW LIVE IN VEGAS AND IT AIN'T FUNNY WHEN YOU NO MO THE HAWAIIAN KINE FAVORITES. GOSH YOU FOLKS SHOULD START THINKING ABOUT OPENING ONE IN VEGAS? WE ALREADY HAVE THE ISLAND STYLE FAVORITE RESTUARANT CALLED L&L'S.

PUNI

Zippy's is the bestest....There chili chicken plates oh they broke da mouth thats my favorite place to go when i go back home to visit my ohana...But yeah thats my favorite resturant or should I sit down and stay in...

Kirk

Reid - BTW Kaisen is very good - too bad only get Laulau and Hawaiian food on Fridays - always means I have to take a day off. San Diego also has a long history with the Portuguese so you'd think that there would be malasadas - but we went to a portuguese bakery in Point Loma, and they only have it on "special occaisions" and you have to pre-order...

Reid

Hi Regina,

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Unfortunately, I have no affiliation with Leonard's Bakery, but perhaps you can send them a note at the adress I've provided.

Hi Puni,

Zippys? Hmmm. OK. Their chili is good, but I like the chili at Rainbow's better. As for the chicken, it's definitely not as good as it used to be. *sigh*

Hi Kirk,

Thanks for the tip. I'm sure many people are looking for local food in the states. Thanks to people like you, I'm sure they'll be able to find it. =)

As for the SD = Portuguese connection, I had no idea about that. Perhaps the reason for not making malasadas more often is because no one orders them? Do the people there watch their weight? Hehe! You know we don't right?

  • Canoneos5d
    Canon EOS 5D

    Most of the newer photos on this site are being taken by this camera. I'm still learning how to use it, but I think the photos it takes are amazing. Though the lens I use often varies, many of the photos on this site are taken with a Canon EF 35mm f2.0 lens.


  • Dscu40r
    Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-U40

    A majority of the photos on this site were shot using this little camera. It was compact and discreet -- excellent for taking photos under most conditions. Sadly, it has recently died.
