Puff Puff or African Doughnut with Cinnamon Sugar
Puff Puff must be the best know African dessert that there is both on the continent and outside. There are differences between the many countries that call one variation of Puff Puff their own. From Beignets in Senegal to Ghanaian Puff Puff, they are all different in their own way with distinct tastes and consistencies. In this case I made the Puff Puff seasonal by adding cinnamon sugar.
The key to making the Puff Puff absorb the cinnamon flavor is by rolling them in the cinnamon sugar when they are still warm. The great thing about Puff Puff are that all ingredients are definitely in your home and as an added bonus they are naturally vegan.
