puff puff recipe

Its summer time! and although the weather has been such a pain this year, it has not stopped me from cooking, travelling and being outside! I love summer and heat in general maybe its from living in Canada for so long where the winters are brutal but any kind of sun I see these days is a huge blessing! With summer comes more social gatherings (at least for me) which means more cooking and entertaining! I love entertaining friends in my house and its always so much fun trying to come up with menus and activities for us to do. A long time friend was visiting last week and I decided to make puff puff for us. I lived with this friend for about 3 years and its good to see how we are all growing into women. Life is a beautiful thing at the end of the day mnius all the setbacks and struggles. even those sometimes help the story more juicy so I cant complain too much.

Enough rambling. here is my puff puff recipe. I actually added a lil cinnamon to mine (p.s. I love cinnamon) and it tasted awesome! Let me know if you try it as usual! I’ll be back sometimes this weekend! Its a long weekend in Canada and I am trynna get away with some friends!

  1. I dunno but I always wondered why puff puffs are never pretty. Lol! They taste awesome but is there something with cooking them that make them looks so crazy?

  2. Lovely! Using the ice cream scoop made it look rough, better to use ur palm. It will come out round if you cut it as you would when U̶̲̥̅̊ want to eat eba n let roll out between ur thumb n pointing finger. #wish
