Serve pumpkin fritters from South Africa as a side dish, as they are, or as dessert, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, caramel sauce on the side.
Mix eggs, flour, cooked pumpkin and sugar to make a batter.
Heat oil in a pan. Drop spoonfuls of batter into the pan, without crowding the pan.
Cook until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes, flip and cook on the other side, about 1-2 minutes.
Pumpkin can be baked, our favorite method, or boiled, cut into chunks, and drained. Once cooked, mash with a fork or process with a blender. Mashed pumpkin should be thick, not too moist and runny.
Try this recipe substituting pumpkin with butternut squash or sweet potato.
To make cinnamon sugar, mix 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon with 6 tablespoons sugar. Store leftover cinnamon sugar in an airtight container.
These are similar to pumpkin pancakes.
