About Afrik Puffpuff Mix


One of the most popular and beloved African snacks is puffpuff, a deep-fried dough ball that is fluffy and sweet. Puffpuff is usually eaten as a breakfast or a snack and can be served plain or with various toppings or dips.


Making puffpuff from scratch can be tricky, as you need to get the right proportion of flour, yeast, sugar, and salt, and let the batter rise properly. But with Afrik puffpuff mix, you don't have to worry about any of that. Afrik puffpuff mix is a mix of flour, yeast, sugar, and salt that will give you a perfect puffpuff batter with just water. You can also customize your puffpuff by adding some spices, such as vanilla, nutmeg, or cinnamon, to give them more flavor.


How to Make Puffpuff with Afrik Puffpuff Mix

Puff Puff

To make puffpuff from the Afrik puffpuff mix, you will need the following ingredients and equipment:


- 1 pack of Afrik puffpuff mix

- 2 cups of warm water

- Oil for deep-frying

- A large bowl

- A spoon

- A frying pan

- A slotted spoon

- Paper towels

- Optional: powdered sugar


Here are the steps to follow:


- In a large bowl, add the Afrik puffpuff mix and the warm water. Stir well until the batter is smooth and bubbly.

- Cover the bowl with a cloth or a lid and let it rise for about 35 minutes in a warm place.

- Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Test the oil by dropping a small amount of batter into it. It should sizzle and float to the top if the oil is hot enough.

- Use a spoon to scoop the batter and drop it carefully into the hot oil. Do not overcrowd the pan. Fry the puffpuff for about 3 to 4 minutes, turning occasionally, until they are golden brown on all sides.

- Use a slotted spoon to remove the puffpuff from the oil and drain them on paper towels.

- Sprinkle some powdered sugar over the puffpuff if desired. Serve and enjoy. 😋


Afrik Moinmoin Mix

Another delicious and nutritious African snack is moinmoin, a steamed or baked bean cake that is smooth and creamy. Moinmoin is usually eaten as a lunch or a dinner, and can be served with pap, garri, bread, rice, or salad. Moinmoin can also be enriched with various proteins, such as boiled eggs, fish, corned beef, or anything else you like.


Making moinmoin from scratch can be tedious, as you need to peel the beans, soak them, and blend them with onions, peppers, and spices. But with Afrik moinmoin mix, you don't have to do any of that. Afrik moinmoin mix is a blend of peeled beans, onions, peppers, and spices that will give you a ready-to-use moinmoin batter with just water and oil. You can also choose to bake or steam your moinmoin, depending on your preference.
