New Orleans is famous for their Beignets and Hawaii is known for the Malasada. Both are deep fried donuts sprinkled with sugar, cinnamon or both.

Beignets come in triangle, round, square and even Mickey Mouse shaped I’ve had the Mickey Mouse shaped ones in Disneyland last year. I have yet to try the authentic ones in New Orleans.

Next time that I’m visiting Hawaii, I hope to try the Malasada. For now, I’ve found recipes for this and one day I will try to make them. I will definitely post my end result and experience on making them.
