DID YOU SAY….PUMPKIN FRITTERS?

Pumpkin fritters are delightful, especially when served warm with crunchy cinnamon sugar. You can almost serve it as desert! (And a favourite in South Africa)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cooked pumpkin, mashed and well-drained
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Oil for frying
  • Cinnamon sugar

Method

  1. Ensure that the pumpkin is well-drained. Beat eggs and add to pumpkin and mix.
  2. Add the rest of the of the ingredients, except for the oil and cinnamon sugar. Mix well into a thick batter.
  3. Heat a heavy pan, using medium to high heat to start with. Add a little oil.
  4. Scoop up heaped tablespoons of batter, and drop into pan, but not too close together.
  5. Fry until bubbles form on the top surface. They should now be firm and golden on the underside.
  6. Flip over and fry on other side.
  7. The fritters will puff up slightly while cooking. To test, press lightly on the fritters. When done, they will tend to spring back.
  8. Remove from pan and drain on kitchen paper.
  9. Serve warm with plenty of crunchy cinnamon-flavoured sugar.

ENJOY….I PROMISE YOU’LL COME BACK FOR MORE!!

What you read is what I feel...

How I write, is mine...How you read, is yours

Most of us feel it, some don't. Some of us say it, some don't. Some may agree, some won't. Be as it may, the facts still remain.
