Cuisine: South African
Author: Aimee Marie

Ingredients

Fritters

  • 450 g tinned pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 240 g self-raising flour
  • 2 tsps baking powder
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar

Sugar coating

  • 50 g caster sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

Other

  • butter (for frying)

Instructions

  • Mix together the pumpkin puree, vanilla extract and egg until well combined
  • Add the rest of the fritter ingredients and beat with a wooden spoon until smooth and firm
  • Melt a knob of butter in a frying pan and place spoonfuls of the batter in the pan
  • Fry them gently and slowly on a medium heat and flip them over once they're golden brown
  • Once cooked on both sides, sprinkle a mixture of caster sugar and cinnamon over them while still hot, before serving

Notes

They're best served fresh, but once cooked, they should keep in the fridge for a few days and can be reheated in the microwave.
