Donuts / Doughnuts

These Portuguese egg-sized balls of yeast are made to order, deep-fried in oil, and lightly coated in cinnamon sugar. What makes this doughnut special is the wonderful sponge quality of its texture (much more sponge than its American yeast-raised counterpart), crisp crust, and lightly sweetened. I think it was 75 cents for one, $4 for half dozen and so on.
Only waited six minutes to get the hot malasada and another minute or two for it to be cool enough to handle. So good I had to have another even after a full meal.

The greatest service chemistry has rendered to alimentary science, is the discovery of osmazome, or rather the determination of what it was. ~Brillat-Savarin
