Puffpuff Making Gone Wrong Because Of Instant Yeast by quintybabe(f): 4:29pm On Jul 02, 2020
Just few minutes ago, I decided to make puffpuff and this is not my first time of making it but because I was hundry and wanted to make it fast, I opted for instant yeast. With instant yeast you can fry your puff immediately, no need to wait for it to rise. The whole thing looks ok till I decided to fry. First I noticed that the look wasn't nice but then I thought it could be the quality of the floor but after I took a bite, I knew something was wrong. I decided to put one into two pieces and i wasnt pleased with what i saw. If you have ever tried making akara from a beans floor, you know it doesn't look the same as your fresh blended beans, not only that, the inside of the akara looks like rubber. That was exactly what i got. A rubber looking puffpuff on the inside. I have attached pictures.
The first picture is that of the puffpuff I made with the instant yeast
The second picture is what it looks on the inside
The third pix is the one i made with the regular dry yeast.
I feel there is a lesson to this and that is, there is no short cut in life! No more instant yeast, I will be patience next time.

The fact that it's written instant yeast does not mean immediate usage ..

U need to wait for it to rise ..

Probably yeast went bad due to storage .

@quintybabe, the problem was not the yeast, you made a mistake by not allowing the batter to rise.
Instant yeast means that you don't need to activate it before using, you can just add it straight to the flour, but then you have to let the batter rise before frying.

See the ones I made with instant yeast:
