Nigerian Buns Recipe (Photos)

This is a revisited post; more like an addendum for Nigerian Buns Recipe  featured a few months back. The recipe hasn’t changed, I just thought to add a few photos and some tips.

Nigerian Buns

  • I tend to “fork” my buns while I fry it; meaning when the buns starts to turn brown, I insert a fork in it and open it up a little, this creates a temporary crack in the buns and allows the inside to cook faster.
  • I also find that the more rugged the buns looks, the tastier and crumblier it is.

Good Luck. If you try this Nigerian Buns Recipe, please let us know how it turns out.

    Hello madam! I want to thank you for the good work you’re doing in the kitchen. The only challenge I have when frying either buns or chin chin is that after frying the first few batches, the oil will start spilling over the cooker, and that is a concern.

      Remove egg from the recipes, that is what makes the oil boil over.

    I’m certainly going to make this today. I prefer it to the last recipe you had. The rough texture of the buns makes its crunchy and nice. Thanks for sharing!

    Tried this on Xmas day, my family loved it so much, I’m making some for my nieces birthday today. I added evaporated milk as someone else suggested but not as much butter. Tasted quite nice and was crumbly but not as crunchy as I remember buns being. Look forward to trying other recipes. Thanks

    I just made it, literally 20mins ago. *sing-song-voice* Awesome!!!! I did modify it a bit cos hubby doesn’t like eggs so I had to think a bit. Eggs are water, fat & what else? So I mixed some evaporated milk, some butter, some water and heated the mix. Worked just fine. Not as smooth textured as eggs maybe, but the difference is very negligible. But my delight was that both hubby and I got to enjoy a snack together without him asking “are there eggs in it?”.
