You might be wondering why I cried for this recipe. I have a lot of products to my name, and I do work on recipes a lot. After I got my puff puff mix in the package, it was time for the buns. From childhood memories of eating fresh hot buns on the street of Lagos and the Ghana rock buns hawked on the streets of Lagos, it indeed stayed on my head, and I can still feel the taste and how crunchy it was. My memories of buns are nostalgic. I love buns more than puff puffs because I can enjoy them hot or cold. “Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside”. 
Yes, I cried because I have tried the recipe up to 12 times within the space of 1 week. I will mix the formula and fry it both morning and night. Somewhere very bad, I threw them straight into the trash!

Some we ate, and some we shared with families and friends. This particular Sunday, I had fried buns 3 times already, and I still needed to get the crunchiness I needed for my buns. I just busted out crying and everyone in my house turned toward me. I said out loud, “I am tired!” My husband and kids told me to take it easy and relax. My husband particularly encouraged me with the story of Thomas Edison; how he failed 1,000 times before he got it right (you can read about him on Google). My husband told me to take a nap and that I would feel better when I woke up. I sat down on the couch and closed my eyes for 10 minutes. Yes, Yes, yes, I stood up and rushed back to the kitchen, and my husband said ‘’you are supposed to be sleeping" I said ‘I just got it! I got it!“ I put the recipe together, fried my drop donuts, and I got it right crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. Yummy yummy yummy!

Don't ever give up on your dream.
