It's nearly that time of the year again, when the ghosts and ghouls come out to play. Check out this spooktaular recipe for Pumpkin Fritters
2lbs/1kg pumpkin Salt 3 tablespoons brown sugar 2 teaspoons mixed powdered spice or cinnamon 1 egg 1 cup 5oz/155g flour 2 tablespoons milk 2 teaspoons baking powder oil for frying Garnish: 2 tablespoons brown icing sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon mixed powdered spice
Peel, cut up and boil the pumpkin in salted water until soft.
Drain and mash pumpkin. In a little bowl mix the sugar and spice and add to the pumpkin.
Whisk an egg and mix into the pumpkin along with the milk. Add baking powder and flour until it comes to a good dropping consistency.
Shallow fry both sides on a medium heat until dark brown. Adjust heat when cooking so fritters cook through without burning.
These fritters should be fairly thin with a creamy consistency inside when cooked.
Serve hot, sprinkled with the mixture of sugar and spice.
Makes 20-25 fritters.
