Note: if you want the texture of the buns sold on the streets, then leave out the eggs and use water in place of milk. 
– You can leave out margarine if you want to.
– If you want your buns to come out round and perfect, you have to make a thicker batter , so that you can be able to mold it.

1. In  a bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, egg, salt, margarine and milk(or water).
To get a lighter consistency , you can use water . 
Mix thoroughly until the dough is smooth and stretchy.

2. Now cover and leave to rest for a few minutes.
Tip: If your batter is thicker, you can mold it into balls

3. Heat up the oil until moderately hot (the oil should not be smoking hot or the buns will just cook outside without doing the same inside).

4. Scoop the batter or molded balls and drop into the hot oil .
Fry on medium heat for about 20 minutes, so that the inside of the buns will cook at the same rate as the outside of the buns.
Tip: When you drop the batter, it should sink to the bottom of the pot or pan. Just wait a few seconds and tilt it a bit with your spatula or spoon.

To fry the next batch, reduce the heat to low. This is because the oil is going to be too hot after the first batch.

      then you can store it covered in the mixing bowl and in the fridge.

        Please, how can I fry my Buns without burning it before it cooks inside?

        • October 28, 2020 / 3:39 pm

          Mavis, the oil shouldn’t be scorching hot when you drop your buns batter.
          And you fry it on medium to low heat, this way the inside cooks really good too.
          I also like to do an oil test with a small piece before frying .
          If the batter I dropped, turns brown instantly, then the oil is too hot for frying
          the buns. But if it forms (doesn’t scatter) and looks off-white, then it is right.

      Hi Prisca , I do no use any preservatives
      for my Nigerian Buns, but you can ask at any store that sells
      baking items
      They will show you one or more preservatives used by
      bakeries and pastry shops.

    Hi! Please I use painter for measuring my flour. How do I know the quantity of other ingredients. Thank u

    • June 4, 2020 / 3:45 pm

      Hi Emelda, you can use the peak evaporated milk tin
      to measure it out
      The tin weighs about 140 grams more or less
      I think the small derica could be half of it,
      trust you can make your estimates with that.

    Can I make buns without baking powder?

    • April 17, 2020 / 5:01 pm

      Hi Rasheedat,some people do but the buns will come out hard
      and kinda flat, so I recommend you use baking powder to get
      it right.

  26. Makasn
    November 2, 2019 / 6:51 am

    ma what of those buns on the street that rises so big and soft can it be made with yeast inside of baking powder

    • November 6, 2019 / 4:25 pm

      Hi Makasn,hope you are not confusing it with puff puff?
      Anyway, the classic or traditional recipe for Nigerian buns only calls baking powder. just like the recipe above.
      But a lot has changed over the years and today some bakers use yeast in place if baking powder
      (making it look more like hard puff puff/donuts;crispy outside and soft inside)-
      You can also get the same results with our buns recipe above, just make sure you add eggs(for soft airy buns) and cut out a larger chunk of dough when frying
      so that you get a larger buns.

      From what I know, you probably added too
      much margarine or too much water when mixing. Else, it could be that the oil was too hot

      July 24, 2020 / 12:03 pm

    • Viktorious
      June 24, 2019 / 8:09 am

      Well, for baking powder, the only problem for too much of it is a bit aftertaste, so just add enough depending on the make of your powder, some brand are not really that good. So, you’re looking at maybe two to four teaspoon

    December 29, 2017 / 1:55 pm

    Thank you so much ma. I tried using your recipe some weeks back but I noticed the buns came out hard. Pls what could be the cause. Also, for the milk aspect, must I use liquid milk? Could it be its because I used powder milk that it came out hard? I like my buns being a bit soft just like the road side buns pls help on how to achieve that. God bless you for your good works. Kisses

    • November 1, 2018 / 6:44 pm

      If you make use of powdered milk, you have to dilute it with water before use.
      And again it could be because of too much flour or the oil was too hot.

    Hello Nky. My buns starts burning as soon as I add it to the oil making it hard for the inside to cook well or the outside to look appetizing. I made sure the oil was not too hard. However, I noticed my dough sinks and even when tilted, do not slightly float as they are supposed to. How can I avoid this?PS:I used all the ingredients you listed.

      March 25, 2016 / 6:02 pm

      Peak milk tin is 170g , and you should level it when measuring. And for the inside to cook well, you have to reduce the heat and let it fry for 20 minutes on medium heat.

    Hi Nky, love wat u r doing here. God bless u. My question is that my buns is always smooth on the outside after frying and I know it should be rough, secondly the inside of the buns is always soft not thick like the ones they sell on the streets. What is wrong with the batter? My hubby is always making jokes with my buns saying it tastes and looks like puffpuff lol. Though I always insist that it is buns even though at the back of my mind, I know it tastes n looks like puffpuff. Pls kindly shed some light on my dilemma. Thanks I appreciate ur reply. From Yinka

    • Nky Lily Lete
      November 5, 2014 / 9:22 am

      Hi Yinka, add extra 30grams flour to make the batter thicker and also omit the egg. The ones sold on the street does not have eggs, and they use water in place of milk.Try it out this time dearie and let me know how it turns out. Send us pics too 🙂

      The baking powder makes the buns fluffy, but the street bakers usually skip it.

    Thanks so much for this recipe. Just finished making my buns. I was a little scared they wouldn't come out good at first because my batter came out a little thin and watery. I may have added too much milk I think. But, the end product was exactly how it was supposed to come out. Thanks again!

      Yes you can make the buns with only sugar , salt and flour, that's how the street bakers do it. Simply use water in place of the milk in the recipe above.Just be aware that the buns will be a a bit hard.Adding Baking powder and the other extra ingredients will yield a softer fluffier Nigerian buns.

      It's okay to do that, but keep in the fridge and the next morning, leave it to return to room temperature before you fry, so that it does not reduce the temperature of your oil and you end up with oil soaked buns.

      Thanks dear, you can prepare it overnight, but let it rest at room temperature for 30 minutes before storing in the fridge. Once it is out of the fridge, let it go back to room temperature before frying, so that it doesn't reduce the temperature of your oil.

    Hi, this is a good job you're doing.I always thought butter was part of buns recipe like chin-chin.I am skeptical about trying it without butter. Then if its ok, I guess chin-chin can also do without butter. That would be great because it would have less calories. Kindly reply, and reassure me this recipe won't yield a "hard-rock" buns
