There is moi moi and there is moi moi. This recipe is special because we have decided to bake our moi moi. So we are serving baked moi moi for lunch. Who will like some?

This will go well with either a cup of garri with cold water or pap/akamu because it is #ProudlyNigerian (forget all the baking swag). What else can you have with moi moi? Drop your comments below
