Daily prompt : Unlikely pairing

on

Bacon and chocolate, caramel and cheddar… Is there an unorthodox food pairing you really enjoy? Share with us the weirdest combo you’re willing to admit that you like — and how you discovered it.

For me birthdays and Christmas are incomplete without moi moi and/or akara covered with sweet custard. Delicious.

I am not sure how unlikely or unorthodox a pairing they are but I know my Nigerian cousin looked at me strangely when I pour custard over the moi moi.

In Nigeria they are more likely to eat it with pap (ogi to the Yorubas) which has slightly sharper taste.

I think I like the combination of savoury and sweet.

Many years ago I set up a Facebook group ‘moi moi and custard’ but strangely enough I am the only member…

Continuing on the savoury and sweet theme, we had scrambled eggs with garlic and home made Magdelenas. Once again delicious.
