Nigerian style bread. 
Nigerian style bread is very soft, that bread that's soft, light and a bit elastic you can squeeze a whole loaf into the palm of your hand and it goes so well with margarine. If you like Nigerian agege bread, you'll love this. It's that soft bread that makes you eat so much without realizing. Easy to bake and great because sugar/honey is controlled by you. I added just 2 spoons of sugar to this bread made with 4 cups flour.

INGREDIENTS FOR NIGERIAN STYLE BREAD:

  • 1 Sachet yeast (7g)
  • 4 cups plain flour
  • 4 tablespoons warm water
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

An inside source explained:
“The number seven is Rob’s lucky number, and he’s extremely superstitious, so

Photos: Rihanna and Prince Harry go HIV screening together as she teases him about the pin prick pain

The prince has been campaigning for a number of months to encourage more people to come forward and be tested for the illness, which can now be managed with drugs 

Prince Harry has taken an HIV test alongside pop superstar Rihanna to highlight World Aids Day.
The pair have taken the tests in Bridgetown on the island of Barbados as his tour of the Commonwealth island comes to a close. 
The intimate moment came after the pair had sat side by side in the early hours of this morning at a concert to celebrate Barbados' 50th anniversary of independence but exchanged just a few words. 
Both Rihanna and the prince tested negative after waiting 20 minutes at the HIV drop-in centre which targets men.

Rihanna and Prince Harry were both given a piece of cotton wool to dab their fingers after the blood was taken for the test

Harry, 32, persuaded the 28-year-old Bajan superstar to take the test in public with him today when the pair chatted backstage for 15 minutes last night after the prince delivered a speech at the evening at Kensington Oval cricket ground.      
It was the second time that Harry had taken a test in public in five months in an attempt to reduce the stigma surrounding the virus.
The prince had teased the singer that the test would be painful and winced as the needle went into his finger.
Seconds later, Rihanna proved that she was tougher than the prince, saying: 'You made it seem like it hurts.
'It's not as painful as you said this morning.' 



 Figures suggest 101,200 people were living with HIV in the UK in 2015, but around one in eight have an undiagnosed infection

Speaking after the test, Rihanna said: 'I am very positive about what you are doing here.'
The singer, born and raised in Barbados, turned up in a Jeep she drove herself and was not noticed until a few minutes after she arrived.
Of the pin prick test, she said: 'This is so easy.'
It was hoped that by getting Rihanna to be part of today's test, the stigma around HIV would be changed in the Caribbean.
A Kensington Palace spokesman said: 'This is a really positive thing to do. This was only arranged last night.
'Prince Harry asked her at the concert. They spoke after he had given his speech. They spoke for about 15 minutes.
'She was very happy to do it. She has had people in her life that she has known who have died from AIDS. She said this is important and she wanted to do this.
'She has tens of millions of followers on social media alone. Her people are confident that she can reach a billion people through social media.'

Prince Harry and Rihanna appeared to be fast friends on Wednesday night as they attended the Golden Anniversary Spectacular Mega Concert at the Kensington Oval Cricket Ground


Harry and the singer urged Rihanna's manager Jay Brown to join them but in vain. 'You're laughing now,' Rihanna said. 'Come and sit here.'
Harry joined in. 'There's a spare seat. Anyone else want to come and join us?' he asked, looking around the assembled journalists.
While they waited for their results, the pair spent the next 20 minutes touring stalls set up in the centre of the capital Bridgetown to promote the Man Aware campaign, urging men in Barbados to get tested.
Aids workers worry that many Caribbean men are unaware that they are carrying the HIV virus and risk infecting others and becoming seriously ill because they refuse to get tested early due to the stigma surrounding the illness.
Harry and Rihanna stopped at a makeshift barber shop set up in a small marquee, where one man was having a shave.
Fabian Sargeant, another HIV counsellor and social worker, explained that a barber shop was a perfect place to raise awareness of the need for HIV testing because it was where people discussed sex, friendship, and what was going on in their lives.
'I need to go to a barber shop!' Rihanna said to laughter.
'Not for sex!' she added quickly, wagging her finger and laughing.
Harry interjected: 'Everybody tells their hairdresser everything.'
Mr Sargeant explained that there were so many myths surrounding sex in Caribbean culture.
'One of the myths is that royalty don't have sex,' he said amid laughter.
'And that royalty has blue blood?' Harry asked, perhaps hoping to change the subject.
'Another myth is that royalty does not engage in oral sex,' Mr Sargeant said.
'I'm not sitting in that chair,' Harry said, gesturing towards the barber, as those around him laughed. 



 Harry looks delighted to be introduced to the songstress at an event marking 50 years of Barbados' independence on Wednesday



Prince Harry and Rihanna's visit today marked the royal's 11th day of his two week official visit to the Caribbean.
It was the third time the royal and the superstar have been together in the space of 24 hours. 
Last night Harry looked determined to make the most of his evening with the Diamonds singer at the 50th anniversary celebration. 
The royal looked dapper in a pair of wine coloured chinos which he paired with a navy shirt for the event.
And the singer stunned in a voluminous pleated cream dress as the pair joined the Prime Minister of Barbados Freundel Stuart. 
The prince had met Rihanna earlier that same day where he looked delighted to be introduced to the superstar at an event marking 50 years of the country's independence.
A smartly-dressed Harry was attending the Prime Minister's Toast to the Nation at St Ann's Fort where the pair were pictured shaking hands.

 Groundnut (Peanut) soup can be cooked with or without vegetables. Here the delicious soup is cooked with very dry afang vegetable I have preserved for some time. This is the best groundnut soup yet. The little water leaf added softness and nutrition to the pot. Groundnut soup is one of the easiest Nigerian soups to cook. Nigerian groundnut soup can be cooked with any green leafy vegetable of choice. There are no strict methods, can be cooked with raw or roast groundnut depending on the taste you enjoy more. Doesn't require many ingredients to taste great. In this recession, this soup and okra soup are the first two soups I will recommend to anyone looking for less expensive delicious soups to cook.  Someone said cooking Nigerian meals can be very intense, but I promise you, cooking this soup is not difficult in anyway. Even if one doesn't have any experience with Nigerian soups, this is a straight forward kind of soup that requires neither skill nor experience. Just get groundnut and some green vegetables ready and your soup is cooked in no time.

Here's why men's and women's shirts button up on different sides

Image result for womens shirtsImage result for mens shirts
If you're wearing a men's shirt, the buttons are usually on the right. If it's a women's shirt, they're usually on the left. The same thing can be said about zippers on jackets.
But why are the buttons on different sides?  
Many historians think we do know why buttons are on the right side for men: The most common explanation is because, in the olden times, clothing held

Toke Makinwa writes about when she had to call Anita for account details to send money to Maje's son



In her book 'On Becoming' Toke Makinwa also talked about how they (she and her enstranged husband Maje) set new rules while trying to work out their marriage. The new rules were that Toke will have to be the connection in terms of communication between Maje and Anita when she needs anything for her son.

"New rules were set in place: anything Anita needed, she had to
come through me. She was not to contact Maje, or he contact her.

One time Anita called Maje to say she needed money for the baby.
But because of the new rules I was the one who got to communicate
with her. I kept asking Maje for her account details but he wouldn’t
give them to me so I called Anita. 
“What’s your account details,” I said, dispensing with any
pleasantries. “I have to send you some money.” 
“Keep your money,” she said. 
“I am not doing it for you,” I said. “Left to me, this money would

Recipe: How to bake plantain cake that everyone will want to eat

Delicious plantain cake.
Plantain cakes can be baked with either ripe or unripe plantain or with a mixture of both blended together. This delicious cake was baked with ripe plantain. The process of baking this is a bit similar to baking with flour except that here you blend the plantain first of all, and ,there is no beating of eggs with margarine. Everything is added, whisked to mix very well and then poured into the baking pan. The ingredients are same cake baking ingredients, just that here there is no sugar added because ripe plantains are sweet. Baking plantain cakes is another great way of making use of ripe plantains before they go bad. Sometimes plantains get ripe all at once and aside making dodo, roasting and boiling, people can't think of other ways of serving them. With this method of cooking/baking ripe plantains, THAT is solved. This plantain cake is a balanced meal with all essential food nutrients.

INGREDIENTS FOR PLANTAIN CAKE:

  • 5 ripe plantains
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt to tone down the sweetness
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
BAKING PROCEDURE FOR PLANTAIN CAKE:
  1. Peel, cut into pieces and blend the plantain with a little water.
  2. Empty into a bowl and add all other ingredients
  3. Whisk and mix very well before emptying into a greased baking pan.
  4. Put in a preheated oven and bake till skewer comes out clean. This cake baked in 4o minutes.
