Christmas season calls for all good food and some very lovely treat, Nigerian buns being one of them. Here is another super easy soft buns recipe that can be on your Christmas table. You can have buns as a starter or dessert, the choice is yours. It is easy and yummy but let me warn you if you are on a strict diet, Nigerian soft buns are not for you as you won’t be able to stop at one. So be warned!
Also, this buns recipe can pass for puff puff without yeast. Puff puff is another popular Nigeria recipe and I am a sucker for it.
