Malasadas (Portuguese Donuts)

Malasadas are Portuguese donuts.  My mother makes these and she puts sugar and syrup on them.  A total treat.


1 1/4 cup milk
1 Tbsp sugar
2 1/2 tsp salt
125g butter
6 large eggs, slightly beaten
1 package dry yeast
6 cups flour
Vegetable oil for deep frying
Castor sugar for coating


Heat 1 cup of milk in a medium-sized saucepan over medium-high heat.  Stir in the sugar, salt and butter and remove from the heat. Remove from the heat and sprinkle on the yeast.  Let stand for 5 minutes to cool.
In a large bowl, combine the milk mixture with the beaten eggs.

In another bowl mix the instant yeast in to the flour. Gradually add the flour/yeast mix into the egg mix and beat until stiff.  Move the dough to a floured board and knead until smooth and elastic.  Form dough into a ball and place in bowl coated with oil.  Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it rise in a warm place until it is double in size, approximately 2 hours.

In a deep pot, heat the oil to medium heat.  Break off golf ball sized pieces of the dough, stretch to a round shape and fry in batches the hot oil until golden brown.  Drain the Fried malasadas on paper towels and sprinkle with castor sugar.

Makes 3 dozen.
