Easy Malasadas (Hawaiian Donuts)

1½  cups Bisquick
½ cup baking powder
6-8 slices of white bread
¾ cup milk
¼ tsp. vanilla
1 egg
Cinnamon and sugar mixture
Oil for deep frying

In a saucepan, heat oil on medium, so that it is ready to go when your do is done. Also make a cinnamon and sugar mixture (to your own taste) before you start the dough. Put it in a bowl so you can dip the malasadas in it when they are finished cooking.

In a large bowl, mix the Bisquick and baking powder together. Then, break the bread (with the crust on) into quarter-sized piece into the bowl Bisquick mixture and stir it all together.

In a separate bowl, whisk the egg, and then add the the milk and vanilla. Whip it altogether. Pour the liquid over the dry ingredients and then, with your hands, mix it together until everything is moist. (Yes, it will be a bit sticky.)

With a small cookie scoop (or two teaspoons) form some dough into a ball and drop it into the oil. When it is brown on one side, turn it over to cook on the other side. (You can do more than one at a time.) When the malasada is done, take it out and put it on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb some of the oil. Then roll it in the sugar and cinnamon mixture and put it on another plate to cool.

Helpful Hints: 
As you fry the Malasadas your oil will cool. So, after cooking a few you will want to wait until you oil heats back up again before cooking more.

This recipe can be double, tripled, or even quadrupled...
