How to Make Nigerian Buns


Buns is different from puff puff because of the process, taste and texture is not the same. You can eat two pieces of Buns and you will be satisfied but as for puff puff, you will keep eating untill your mind tells you to stop before you can fill your stomach with it.

My first attempt on Buns turnout pretty good so if your own first attempt failed you do not give up, because practice makes perfect.

My new best snacks is Buns because it is very fast to prepare, no yeast, no waiting for it to raise and it doesn’t consume plenty oil like puff puff.

Some people do not like the egg in their Buns like my baby sister no milk no egg and some prefer egg to milk. But you can choose to skip both egg and milk and you will still have your Buns so nice and yummy.

Different people with different taste, you can decided to remove dairy from your recipe but on this topic we are going to be add both the egg and milk to our recipe because we don’t want our buns to be too hard.
