Bofrot is the angel of the morning,period!!! The long queues at the bofrot place each morning is a testimony. Ok so if you don’t bofrot,then here it goes!

Bofrot is a cousin to doughnut and bread. Sweet and yeasty,it is fried in lots of oil to give it its golden brown color (if you hate oil,stop reading please)

It has lots of relatives, toogbe and clan, but bofrot is the most popular celebrity in the family. My favorite people in the world,Nigerians call it puff puff (yes it sounds like a cartoon name)

I tried this recipe just a bit differently but it worked so here it goes ;


3 cups of all purpose flour

1/4 cup sugar

1 pack yeast (10g) (1 tsp )

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 milk


2 tsp nutmeg ( I love it)


Big bowl with hot water

Oil for frying

Recipe (makes 5 medium sized balls)

Pour your flour in a dry clean bowl

Add your yeast,salt,nutmeg,Baking powder, sugar and stir

Crack in your egg, milk and mix

Put your bowl in the bowl of warm water and cover for 5 mins

Stir and get ready to fry

If you are not good with the hand techique, use an ice cream scoop and carefully put it in the hot oil to fry.

Fill the oil with more batter, it allows the balls to float on to top of the oil (it’s science,I can’t explain)

Continuously check on the Brofrot as it fries pretty fast.

When done, remove and drain.

This is a standard recipe, but lots of ‘jazz’ can be added to it .

Enjoy with roasted groundnuts, Kooko or coke 😜😜

      Hi Omaa, thanks for trying but kindly reduce the sugar if it turned out too sugary. Great you added vanilla, I love vanilla too.

    Your recipe says you use a half cup flour.
    Please check it.

    Your recipe says a half cup flour to a quarter cup sugar and 10g yeast. Please your measurements are off for bofrot. Unless there us a new kind of bofrot in town. I know recipes are hard to write but please review it and adjust.
