I have a lot of Nigerian friends and not one of them has ever baked anything for me when I showed up at their door. So you can imagine my surprise when I found out that there exists an indigenous dry confectionery mix market in Nigeria! I was curious to find out more and also baffled at my own ignorance. I have always professed that African people don't really do the whole oven baking thing but that's a lie. It is because I don't know how to bake and find that it is easy to blame it on others. Perhaps my Nigerian friends bake for their children and chose to only cook Egusi Soup for me.
