Nearly every culture I encounter has some form of a deep fried dough sprinkled with sugar. On multiple occasions, I have consumed fry bread with Native American colleagues and enjoyed beignets in Louisiana. There must be some universal truth that explains our willingness to create and consume such delights.

While in Honolulu, we were strongly encouraged to visit Leonard’s - home of the Portuguese donut. The fried treat is called a Malasada. It comes sprinkled with sugar or sprinkled and filled. One of these is pretty much all you can handle. We brought a dozen back to Kauai and refrigerated them to control the messy fillings that emerge as you eat. I am thinking a chocolate Malasada and coffee will make a perfect breakfast.
