I took an online catering class and I learnt a lot. I got to try out new small chop recipes that I’ve always wanted to learn. I’m kind of grateful for this covid-19 break as it has allowed me to practise and perfected my puff-puff making skills and I’m ready to share that knowledge with you. It’s a very simple and inexpensive recipe to try out and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.


-2 cups of flour
-2tsp of yeast
-Vegetable oil
-1/4 cup of sugar
-1tsp of nutmeg
-1/2tsp of salt
-A ball of onion
-1tsp of pepper (Grounded or fresh; optional)
-1 1/4 cup of warm water


STEP 1: Pour yeast in a bowl and add a little sugar to it. Add about 1/4 cup of water and mix thoroughly. Put mixture aside for a few minutes.

STEP 2: Pour flour in a different bowl and add sugar, nutmeg and salt to it. Mix all together.

STEP 3: Check on your yeast mixture to see if it has risen (i.e increased in size). If it has, pour into the flour mixture. If it hasn’t, leave for another few minutes.

STEP 4: Mix yeast and flour mixtures thoroughly till it forms a batter. You can add more water to the batter if it’s too thick but don’t make it watery.

STEP 5: Add pepper and onions to the batter and mix again. This step is optional.

STEP 6: Cover bowl with any plastic wrap first then with a napkin and set aside for 30-45mins.

STEP 7: After 30-45 minutes, the batter should have increased in size and have bubbles on the surface. (Do not proceed if u don’t see the bubbles)

STEP 8: Fill your frying pan with oil and heat till it very hot. You can add onions for aroma.

STEP 9: Scoop your batter with a round measuring spoon or any round cup of your choice.

STEP 10: Put the round batter in the hot oil and fry both sides till it’s golden brown (fry under low heat so that it won’t burn).

Viola!!! Your yummy puff-puff is ready. It is best eaten/served with chilled fruit juice, yoghurt or zobo.
