African doughnut or boflot is a street food sold in every corner of Ghana. This can be eaten as a dessert or a main meal.

This fried food is convenient, sweet and deeply satisfying for the ‘snacky’ type.

If you are craving for some and can't seem to wait, go through the long process of making them.

Here is a quick and easy way to make your boflot without yeast.


2 1/4 cups flour

1/2 cup sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 tablespoon nutmeg (optional)

1 cup milk

3 large eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla essence

Vegetable oil for deep frying

1/4 cup melted butter

Preparing boflot


In a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together (ie. the flour, salt, baking powder and nutmeg)

Gradually add the eggs, vanilla essence, melted butter and half of the cup of milk.

Mix well until an even texture has been achieved. The batter should not be watery. If it is too thick add a little milk until texture is achieved.

In a large pan, pour a good amount of vegetable oil for deep frying. Too little oil will result in flat balls.

Make sure the oil is very hot before frying to prevent soggy balls.

Either use a spoon or your hands to scoop some batter and gently drop into the oil. Continue until pan is evenly covered. Do not overcrowd the pan as this would make turning the balls difficult.

Fry until it's golden brown beneath, the gently turn them over and fry until the other side is also golden brown.

Use a perforated spoon to scoop the balls out of the oil. You can place on a paper napkin to soak the excess oil.

Your boflot is ready to be enjoyed. You can also sprinkle some powdered sugar for the sweet tooth.
