Fillozes - Portuguese Donuts

This recipe comes from a website called Gil's Portugese Recipes which sums up in a nutshell what the site is all about.

Gil says: "Being of Portuguese heritage these recipes have been my comfort foods for a long time. My grand-parents were all Portuguese. My Dad's mom was born in Brazil and she was a cousin to the late great Carmen Miranda. As a native of New Bedford, Massachusetts, I grew up in a predominantly Portuguese neighborhood. There were Portuguese restaurants on almost every corner. Portugese cooking uses seafood in great abundance because of its fishing industry, so fresh fish and wonderful Portuguese sausages makes only for great meals . . . "
