Accra Beans-Akara-Black Eyed Peas Fritters

Yesterday, my oven just wasn’t co-operating with me. First, I made a phenomenal milky cake mixture and popped into it. It didn’t bake at all. All it did was burn the cake quickly within the first few minutes. I was livid.
Then thinking perhaps the oven was too hot, I set it to the lowest heat and once again popped in some black eyed peas batter to make koki beans. Once again, the wicked oven turned it into a burnt offering. I was enraged.
I wished I had put my black eyed peas batter to better use by making Accra Beans. The Accra wins every time, people. I have made a video to show you how to make this Cameroonian street food delight right in the comfort of your own kitchen. It is unbelievably easy to make!

See the written recipe with step by step photos in this post. I really enjoy making these videos and I plan on doing so much more. So you may want to take a moment to subscribe to my growing YouTube channel so you will be the first to see a new video.

Enjoy the video and go make some Accra!
