Hi Everyone, thanks again for stopping by my blog! I know its been forever, I just have been so busy, like really busy and I haven’t had time to sit to blog or even read my favorite blogs. I have been doing some traveling and also there just seems to be one thing or another going on every single weekend. These are all excuses so I am pumped and ready to get back into blogging consistently(fingers crossed.)
I love puff puff, its just so yummy and also such a simple snack to make. I decided to make this puff puff with a little twist because even though I love it just the way it is, I found a way to enjoy it better with a bit of pepper. I love spicy food and every spicy food lover would appreciate this twist. I first tasted this when I was 9 years old and lets just say it made me love puff puffs even more. My favorite part of the whole pastry is actually the crunchy ends due to slight imperfections.
BETWEEN I AM ENTERING THIS RECIPE FOR A CONTEST HERE, SO PLS LEAVE A COMMENT SO I CAN BE SELECTED, THANKS!!
Ingredients: Makes about 60 small size puff puffs
150g white sugar
1 teaspoon yeast
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 cups of lukewarm water
Dried pepper or habanero pepper (based on tolerance level)
Using a scale measure your flour and sugar
Add the sugar to the flour
Add the yeast and nutmeg
Using a hand mixer at lower, mix until smooth and lump free (about 2 minutes). The hand mixer makes this process so easy.
It should look like this
Cover your mix with a foil paper and put in a dark spot for 1.5hrs. I put mine in my oven or sometimes my kitchen cabinet.
After 1.5 hrs your mix should look like the image below. It should be fully risen and have a stretch to it.
Heat your oil to 350degrees Fahrenheit in your deep fryer. An alternative is to also use a deep pot.
Chop your habanero pepper and then add to your mix OR add your dried pepper into the mix
Using your hand scoop the mix into your hand and drop into hot oil. Alternatively you can use a spoon(it determines size) to scoop it. I just prefer doing it the traditional way.
Let it fry until golden brown
Take out of the deep fryer and place on paper towel to remove excess oil
With a little jazz for extra sweetness (sprinkled confectioners sugar)
