I have a great recipe for puff-puff that my mom shared on this blog, yes she did! Did you miss it? Click HERE to see it! Her puff-puff had pepper and onions-it's a favourite way for me to make puff-puff. I got a lot, I mean A LOT of request to show how you can do puff-puff without touching it so much because some people just don't like hands in their food, I can understand that. In this recipe I share how you can make puff puff with minimal ingredients and without touching it...yes! Still awesome tasting, still round and fabulous! WarningDO NOT copy my recipe text to your blog or website without my consent! You can share my videos but don't copy my recipe TEXT! Don't take my photos and remove my watermark, I will sue You and you will LOSE ALOT OF MONEY! Wehdone.

3 Cups Plain Flour
1 Cup Caster Sugar/Granulated Sugar (Or according to your taste)
4 tsp Instant Yeast
Sprinkle of Nutmeg
Vegetable Oil
Pinch of Salt
2 Cups Warm Water

  • Sift the flour to get rid of any unwanted particles and to loosen it. 
  • Add all the dry ingredients together with a spatula.
  • Gradually add warm water and mix together with the dry ingredients. 
  • Place the mixture in a warm place i.e your warm oven or warm microwave. Keep it there to rise for about 45 minutes. It will double in size. If it doesn't it means something is wrong with your yeast. I use instant yeast so you don't need to soak in water first just add to flour.
  • Pour vegetable oil in a deep pan and place on medium heat.
  • Now scoop the mixture with your semi rounded measuring spoon (1 tbs scoop) transfer to the pan of oil (See video to see how this is done). Getting perfect round puff-puffs is an art...we can cheat our way through it.
  • Fry batch by batch so that you don't overcrowd the pan. Flip it when it gets brown, until it is a nice golden brown. 
  • Transfer from the pan to another bowl to drain the oil!

      Ooooh pls don't confuse me.I noticed the blog recipe didn't tell u to add water but Sisi made up for this by showing it on ghetto ideology. I didn't use milk maybe it's a different recipe?xxx

  2. Thanks for sharing this with us.will definitely try it.

  3.! Looks so soft, fluffy and tempting! Sisi, the brain burster! Bobo and tito dey enjoy sha

  4. You forgot tell us when to add the warm water and the quantity to use.

  5. Oh... for the love of puff puff.

  6. It looks really delicious

  7. I love this... I've never known how to make round puff puff... Tnx so much

  8. Your makeup has me crushing each time sha.

    Puff puff is one thing I haven't been able to conquer in the kitchen, so I am so thrilled about this recipe not only cos its easy and clear, but cos its hands free, the last time I tried using my hands to get that round shape....the oil just splashed on my face.(imagine ....body complete, husband hard, then puff puff wants to come and mar my face)

    Id definitely try this.


    Can this be achieved with wheat?

  9. Hey Sisi! I tried the recipe and it turned out so amazing. The only thing was that it took about 5 hours to rise but I'm pretty sure it's because of the cold weather here. Thank you for sharing and I think I will try the banana bread next.

  10. I tried this recipe with half a cup of granulated sugar and it was too sugary. So I think the measurement for Caster sugar isn't the same for granulated. What do u think?

    1. I bake too and I found out that granulated sugar tastes sweeter than baking or caster sugar. The sugar used in this tutorial 'Choice sugar' is a mixture of sugar and corn flour I was told which is explains why it is less sweet. So, i usually use half the measurement for sugar when am using granulated sugar.

  11. Nice. I've always dreaded making puff-puffs so they dont come turn out looking horrible but because you make it look simple, I think I'm gon be trying this. Thanks for sharing

  12. nice recipe,will try it out, but please where can i get the sachet yeast you used for the puff puff.

    1. if you live in Nigeria, You can buy at shoprite. I got mine there. Don't mention, You're welcome.

  13. Hi Sisi,thanks for sharing, I have been thinking of a way to fry puff puff without touching with my hands, you just solved that puzzle for me well done.

  14. Hi Sisi,please is there a recipe with self raising flour? We don't have plain flour where I live,I have checked almost all the malls. Thank you

  15. Hello sisi Yemmie! thanks for sharing as usual.

    Based on your recipe above, how many puff puff balls are made with the quantities stated above? I'd like to make some this weekend so would be good to know.
