Puff Puff | No Yeast African Puff Puff

This week I will be presenting doughnuts varities from the list given here for BM#47 .For the first day I chose Cameroon Puff-puff , as it is called in Nigeria or Bofrot in Ghana is a traditional African snack similar to a doughnut. There exists a similar version known as Mandazi or Mandasi in Eastern and Southern Africa. Puff-puffs are similar to the French Beignet and the Italian Zeppole. Puff-puffs are made of dough containing flour, yeast, sugar, butter, salt, water and eggs and deep fried in vegetable oil until golden brown. Variations can be made in the recipe by using baking powder in place of yeast .

I don’t like yeasted goodies as much so I was looking for a puff puff recipe without yeast and found this here.

So let’s start the recipe .yum

3 cups Self rising flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup beer (I used 1/2 cup soda water)
1 cup milk
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
oil for deep frying

For cinnamon sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon

Heat oil in a sauce pan and keep it on medium low.
In a mixing bowl , add sifted flour ,sugar and nutmeg.Stir in milk , water and soda water .
Mix well until everything is incorporated.
Scoop few balls in oil with the help of spoon or use your hands.
Fry for few minutes until bottom is golden brown.Turn the ball and fry from top side .
Drain on paper towel.Roll in cinnamon sugar and serve warm.


Serve-5. Cooking time- 20 minutes
