Nigerian Buns

 

Nigerian Buns
Buns requires a level of mastery that puff puff doesn't require, if you don't get it right the first time, please don't give up. I can proudly say it took me this LONG to perfect (used lightly here) my buns. For the Lovers of Buns, I think the outer shell is the most important part, it has to be Crunchy/crumbly but not too hard. I never used to eat the inside dough but I was able to with this recipe, the egg and canola oil made it so fluffy and light.

 

Ingredients
21/2 cups All-purpose Flour
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Powder
3 eggs
1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
1/4 cup Water
1/4 cup Canola Oil or melted butter
Oil for deep frying

There goes my diet! Bloody delicious-looking buns...I bet I won't find any at this time of the night so I will stuff myself full of rubbish and cry at my waistline.

Send me one, please!!!!

os said...

Mmmmh... My own is not even diet but since I have not even perfected puff puff and you want me to try my hands at these lovely buns, are you not setting me up for a comedy show at home?

Anyway, one day I will summon the courage and try to make them.

Well fried food fattens ‎​​me o and I don't seem to like buns maybe the oil puts ‎​​me off.
But I've copied the recipe so I can do this as a snack for ‎​​home boys and babes SOON :)wink

blessings my friend.....
stopped by to say thank you for coming by and sharing your brand of wisdom with me. Its always a pleasure.

We (Trini's i.e. Trinidadians) have a dish similar we call fry bake. We eat it with salf fish bullja (salted cod fish with onions, tomatoes, herbs and spices and olive oil).

I also have a cameroonian friend who makes these......they are great...

thanks for sharing....
have a maverlous weekend.

Kai, where are you from, Calabar? I had to send your blog link to my husband and my friend to check out. I will be making the buns as well as asaro (though, mine will be with sweet potatoes as accessing yam in this area I stay is quite a mission). The pictures are just making my mouth water. I tried the agoyin bean sauce and it was a knock out!!! I just love your food blog, such a breath of fresh air. It can make one get warning too as I am at work and can't resist not looking at the food pixs.

9jaFOODie said...

Eniscoco: awwww.. I am smiling, thanks a million for sharing the link. I am not Calabar *wink*.lol.
Happy you loved the agonyin sauce.... you can definitely use potatoes for your porridge or cocoyam. my next post will actually be on that.
