Pumpkin Fritters

Serves 4 Ingredients Method
2 cups of cooked, mashed pumpkin

4tbls plain flour

2tsp baking powder

Pinch salt

1 egg, whisked

Sunflower oil, for frying

3tbls granulated sugar

1tsp ground cinnamon

3 lemons, cut into wedges

Steam the pumpkin until tender. Leave to drain well and cool down. The more moisture that evaporates from the pumpkin, the less flour you will need and the lighter the pumpkin fritters will be. Mash well till lump free.
Mix together the mashed pumpkin, egg, flour, salt and baking powder. The mixture will be quite runny.
Heat a little oil in a non stick frying pan, drop spoonfuls of batter onto the pan. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Drain of kitchen paper.
Mix the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the pumpkin fritters.
Serve warm with lemon wedges, which bring out the flavour.
