Lunch, Dinner.

I’ve always been a sweet tooth, ever since I discovered sugar. As I was searching and stalking my favorite foodies on the gram, I found a snack called ‘bombolone’ and decided to make it.

I know most of you have no idea what a bombolone is. A bombolone is an Italian filled donut which is eaten as a snack or as a dessert. It is also known as ‘bomba’ in some regions of Italy. The luhya or African in me doesn’t know how to different a snack or a meal, we just classify them as food 😂😂😂.

The beauty in being African is food never goes bad, as long as you are a foodie. Am I right or am I right???

The greatest thing about them, they are so easy to make, just like mandazis. Here goes the recipe……….


  1. Three cups of all purpose baking flour.
  2. Two eggs.
  3. A tablespoon of powdered vanilla extract.
  4. Half a cup of sugar.
  5. Two tablespoons of yeast.
  6. A cup of warm water.
  7. A pinch of salt.
  8. Quarter cup of melted butter or cooking oil. (Any is optional).


Start by placing the yeast in the warm cup and stir it. Let it rest for 5 minutes as the yeast activates. If bubbles start forming, then its ready.

In a separate bowl place all dry ingredients and mix it. I don’t have a particular way of placing ingredients so I just placed all my wet ingredients and started kneading my dough.

After its ready, cover the dough and let it rest for an hour or so. Roll the dough on a flat surface and use a doughnut cutter to achieve the desired shape.

Place the doughnuts on a surface and cover for 30mins, after it has risen then it means it’s ready to be cooked. Place in hot oil and fry them 2 mins each till golden brown or dark brown.

When ready cut at the side and fill it in with anything you desire. I decide to fill it with Nutella and garnished it with desiccated coconut.

Enjoy 😘
