Leonard’s bakery – Hawaiian series

A wonderful reader suggested I hunt down malasadas while I was in Hawaii. When I went to google what malasadas were, Leonard’s bakery popped up in my browser; apparently that was the place to go get my Portuguese doughtnuts from!When I walked in I was a little shocked to see that most of the cabinet was empty. Were they all sold out? 😦 Thank goodness I quickly spotted a sign saying that their doughnuts are made fresh to order.Flavours and prices at Leonard’s bakery.After a short wait, we were handed a pink bag with our goodies.Malasadas – Portuguese doughnuts ($1.10 each excl tax)

Originalsugar malasada. I was absolutely blown away by the texture. For something that I thought was going to be oily, it was not at all. It was pillowy soft and when you took a bite it revealed a beautiful doughy matrix . The outer coating of sugar gave it the perfect amount of sweetness.

Cinnamoncinnamon sugar malasada. I am a huge cinnamon fan but I preferred the original flavour.Malsada puffs – malasadas with filling ($1.50 each excl tax)

Custard – custard filling. The custard filling wasn’t OTT so the overall sweetness levels was still perfect. I really love custard and I just wanted to slurp all the filling out. Malasadas are definitely worth trying if you’re visiting Hawaii. I love how there is a Leonard’s food truck near the outlet centre, it is the perfect sugar hit you need before  you do more shopping.

Doughnuts come in a cute pink box when you purchase 6 or more with a tiny discount.
