Recipe for family meals :

Punahou Malasadas (Hawaiian Doughnuts)

This is one of the recipes from Mrs Susie. If you want to find out more about her have a look at her biography page which she has written. Mrs Susie specialises in Oriental cooking. An important first step in Oriental cooking (which I think is important) is at the end of each recipe.

"If you have ever been to Hawaii and had the good fortune to eat these wonderful little pillows of air, please by all means taste them again in your own home. They cook up crisp and light. I can't think of a better way to start or end the day".
