Nigerian Buns

  • 4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar 
  • 1 tbsp baking powder 
  • 1/2 nutmeg 
  • 70 g butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk 
  • Frying oil

Start by measuring flour into large bowl. Add cold, cubed butter.

Using a pastry blender, cut the butter into the flour. (You also use your hands or food processor.

Once the butter is incorporated set aside.

In another bowl mix the milk, eggs, nutmeg, baking powder and sugar.

Create a well in the middle of the flour

Pour all the wet ingredients into the well

Mix until it all comes together. Batter should be thick

Allow batter rest for 5 mins.

Place a medium deep saucepan over medium heat, adding to 3-4 cups of oil.   Your oil should be hot enough now, use your hands or spoon to pick up the dough in the oil (You want the scoop to be a kind of round, but not perfect).

Frying the rolls itself requires some patience and technique, because you work with a thick dough, you want to make sure the rolls are cooked all the way through.

Turn the loaves often while he is in the oil, use a strong one to drill holes in while he is in the oil. Fry until golden brown; 2-3 minutes on each side.
