Hey Buff Readers!
It has indeed been a very busy week since i last posted. Okay, let me be honest, I’ve been very lazy. But that didn’t stop me from coming up with loads of content to post here. It’s just writing them that’s the problem.😩
So, during the Muslim holiday, Sallah, while y’all were in your house, i took out the time to make puff puff with my bestfriend Uwem. I did this, not only so i could derive joy (because, duh), i also wanted to update my buff fam💪 with a puff-puff post cause y’know… you’ve been dying for one. LOL.
If you’re on my snapchat, you’ve pretty much seen it all… so this is just a short play by play of how it all went down.
STEP 1: Wash your hands. Because cleanliness is key and jedi jedi is padlock.
Also, remove all jewelry. Jeez, Ada. Out of all the delicious surprises i’ve found inside puffpuffs i don’t think ANYBODY wants to find silver rings in their puff puff.
STEP 2: Gather the ingredients.
250g of flour
2tbs of dry yeast
6tbs of sugar
Pinch of salt
2 cinnamon sticks (all these oyinbo things)
So, we gathered the ingredients and materials we would use such as the measuring cups and spoons, weigh, bowls, etc.
STEP 3: Measure the flour depending on where you’d want it and then sieve.
STEP 4: We then measured the 2 tbs of yeast into a small bowl and added the warm water.
This is to make the dry yeast dissolve.
If you’re using powdered yeast you don’t have to go through this process… just add the powdered yeast directly.
STEP 5: We grated 2 cinnamon sticks and sieved it into the flour. If you don’t sieve it, you’ll just find wood inside your food. I don’t think that’s a usual added feature.
We used 5 tablespoons at first but I’d encourage to use more. That’s the standard though. Me i like sugar so, we eventually added more. 😊
STEP 7: Add salt to taste.
STEP 8: Begin to add the dissolved yeast into the flour mixture and mix. We mixed this with our hands mind you.
When you mix that, it should give you a clumpy mixture. Then, you add warm water slowly. Beat to remove clumps (ko-ko).
It should look smooth like this… or even better if you’re a good student.😊
STEP 9: Cover with cling film or cloth and allow to rise from the ashes like a pheonix. It should be left for an hour or so, so set your timer. During this wait time, you can be preparing a drink or catch up on some Game Of Thrones. How far Jon Snow Stark Targaryen?
When you get back, the mixture should have puffed up. 😉
STEP 10: Pre-heat the oil, just a bit. Don’t let it bleach but also don’t let it be too tepid, so the puff puff won’t soak up oil.
I guess i shouldn’t explain the frying process.
Oh yes, the scooping was a big problem for us. In my post on 15 fun facts, i did mention something about an icecream scoop. Well, we didn’t have that so we had to practice using our hands.
At first, they were soooo fat and big. But we got the hang of it later on.
So here’s the finished product👇 Not too bad i hope?
So, that’s it guys!
