Puff Puffs (African Doughnuts)

winner.jpgThis is a very simple and cheap desert. It takes about 10 minutes to mix and cook the puff puffs, and they are delicious! This is something you can make when you are out of everything, and just want something sweet!


  • 2 1/2 cups self rising flour
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1-2 eggs (not really necessary but does make a rich batter)
  • milk (only enough to make a stiff batter. You want it thick as in hushpuppy consistency).
  • cooking oil (enough to deep fry)


Mix flour, sugar, eggs and milk into a thick batter. (This should be the consistency of hush puppy dough.) Thick enough to hold it's shape in the oil while cooking. These are to be deep fried, so put enough oil in a pan to deep fry them.

Using a small spoon, put a small amount of batter into the hot oil and when golden brown remove from the oil. Strain onto paper towels and then roll into the sugar combination of your choice. I love the powdered sugar!

You can use any, or all, of the listed ingredients below to roll the puff puffs in after they come out of the fryer! These are just a few, try some of your own ideas!

  • powdered sugar
  • cinnamon sugar
  • sugar
  • chocolate syrup
  • brown sugar
