"Ensaimadas" are the traditional sweet bread from the island of Mallorca. The exact origin of this popular bread is debated, but is mostly assuredly from the Middle East. It is shaped in the form of a coil and sprinkled with a heavy coat of powdered sugar. "Ensaimadas" are enjoyed as a breakfast dunked in hot coffee, or as an afternoon snack, or dessert. They aren't difficult to make, but require a bit of patience, since the dough must rise several times.
