How to make Hot buns from a pack of cake mix

Did you know you could use your regular store-bought cake mix for more than just cake; I bet not! I made these soft hot buns with a sample pack of cake mix. They are so delicious and can be made with different flavours. I like to call these the twin-like cousins to Nigerian puff-puff. Puff-puff is a popular snack and dessert in most Nigerian homes within the diaspora. It is similar to doughnuts but very few people know of Hot buns which is more cake-like but without the baking; Just like Fried-rice is to Jollof.

How to make Hot buns from a pack of cake mix:

  • Open the pack of cake mix and pour content into a bowl.
  • Pour in the milk and whisk into a think batter.
  • Heat oil in a deep pan or fryer on medium-high heat.
  • Scoop the batter with your hands and press the batter between you thumb and index finger into the hot oil. This will drop like tear drops.
  • Turn and fry on both sides for 3 minutes until its golden brown in colour.
  • Remove from oil, place on a sheet of parchment or tissue to drain excess oil. Serve warm.

If you’re not a fan of yeast or waiting for the batter to rise, you would love this. Also, if you simply prefer anything cake-like or struggle with baking; then these buns of delight are your yummy and less chaotic alternative.

    This looks so easy and so tasty! Can you substitute milk for either almond or coconut milk instead?

  2. You can always use it as batter to dip and fry fruit pieces like banana, pineapple or peach. You can even use slices of coyote squash or mozzarella cheese the same way.
