Making Burmassa!  

Today Therese made a Burkinabe dish.  It's basically fried bread dough.  You can make a bunch of variations on this dish such as adding a filling of onions in the middle, or making it sweet by adding sugar.  

I was a little nervous about how this might turn out since we of course don't have a recipe, but Therese LOVED it, so I guess we guessed right!  African style all the way.  

With this post, I have to give a plug for older child adoption!  While their are challenges to be sure with raising the older adopted child, there are incredible moments that can be shared because they can share their life experience with you.  

Bon Appetit!


  1. Is Burmassa the Moore name for this? We just call it Gateau (cake). My daughter and I make this alot (the sweet version). We have made variations by adding mashed banana and chocolate chips. Looks like she did a great job and I am sure had fun doing it! God Bless!

    1. I think so, Amy. She also calls it "brumage", pardon the spelling. LOVE the idea with banana and choc chips though- yum!

  2. Looks good! And great plug for older adoptions too. :)

  3. Very yummy! Like the plate,too:)
