I know that Halloween was almost a week ago, so you probably don’t have any pumpin flesh scooped from Jack-O-Lanterns left sitting in the fridge. But if you did, this would be a very helpful blog-post.
Just in case you have pumpkins all over the place despirate to be eaten, this 10-minute recipe for pumpkin fritters is a special gift for you.
Ingredients: (enough for 3 – 4 people)
2 cups cooked pumpkin (mashed)
1/2 cup of flour
a pinch of salt
1 heaped tablespoon of sugar
Pour enough vegetable oil into a frying pan to cover the base. Heat it up ’til almost sizzling.
Beat all the ingredients together to make a soft batter.
Scoop spoonfuls of batter into the pan (beware of splashing oil, or doom might occur) and fry on both sides until lightly browned.
Dry on paper and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Tasty tasty tasty tasty.
P.S. The jack-o-lantern on the top of this post was made from a Lightning Squash which was only 8cm in diameter. Here’s a photo where the size is more obvious (I think this would make a good cover for a children’s book):
