December of 2012 I went on a cruise to Hawaii, first time there, and it is sure hard to take in all the beauty and customs while on each Island for only a day. But I sure did my best, and found the most unique food item… unique to me, it was served before you ordered, almost as they do in restaurants with a small loaf of bread to get you ready for dinner. However this was a little round pastry type thing with really fine sugar on it, we of course at it then asked “what is it”. It is what they referred to as “similar to a donut”. These are so close…..
Recipe shared from – Mac & Cheese
3/4 Cup sugar
1/4 Cup vegetable oil
3/4 Cup milk (made one batch with rice milk to good results)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 Cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
2 Tbsp. butter, melted (optional)
1/2 Cup superfine sugar (can pulse regular sugar in food processor to make), or powdered sugar.
We have also used a cinnamon/sugar combination.
Lightly grease a muffin tin with vegetable oil or spray.
In a large bowl, beat together sugar and egg until light in color. Add vegetable oil, milk, and vanilla to sugar mixture and combine.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg.
Then pour into liquid mixture and stir to combine.
Fill muffin cups 3/4 full, and bake in a 350° F preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the middle comes out clean.
