Buns is one easy and fast snack to make only if you get your measurements right. it takes 20-25 mins to serve hot tasty buns.

For those that doesn’t know what BUNS means, it’s an African pastry that requires frying.

I really don’t know where the word BUNS originated from but many of us grew up to know that it is called BUNS and it’s a very nice tasty snacks that when eaten with cold soft drinks keeps you filled up.

There are 2 methods but I am sharing the second conventional method that are mostly served as small shops in occassions.


2 cups of flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 small Egg [optional]

20g Margarine

3-4 tablespoon sugar

A pinch of salt

1 tablespoon powder Milk

A dash of Nutmeg [optional]

1 cup of Water


Sieve the flour and baking powder

Mix in Margarine with hand till its incorporated into the flour

Add the sugar, salt, milk and nutmeg

Add the Egg, pour in half of the water

Mix it together until you have loose batter, not runny

and no lumps, which means everything blended in well.

Heat your oil on medium heat, rinse your hand in water and scoop the batter with your wet hand [ this process is to avoid sticky batter on your hands and it will drop freely inside the oil].

Fry and turn it at intervals till all cooked and are golden brown.

Tips: If your batter is heavy add a little water.

it is better to add water little by little so that it will not be runny.
