Puff puff will always remain a bae anywhere you find it. It is one of the favourite snacks of Nigerians, a popular street food and I make it a lot and I mean a lot to a point that I recently told myself I won’t make it for at least another month.

As easy as this recipe is, I struggled with it a lot and I almost gave up because each time I tried making it has been a disaster.

To be honest, I have not been able to keep away and I have been playing with a lot of different flavours to make it gourmet. This recipe is one of the many that I’ve tried and I loved every bite of it. The most interesting part is that,
One of the many snacks a Nigerian wouldn’t say no to, is sausage roll. It is a tasty snack and very easy to make too. I was at home last weekend and I had plans to make some sausage rolls for a friend but after I baked these little devils, I tasted one and I was hooked. I changed my mind instantly. I know it is bad and selfish of me but lord knows you would do the same.
