Pumpkin Fritters

Fritters are a favorite snack in South Africa and are well suited to breakfast. 

They are traditionally fried in oil, however, butter adds a crispy

crust which is enhanced by cinnamon sugar.





1 cup canned pumpkin

1 large egg

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

2 tablespoons golden brown sugar

1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice


3 tablespoons butter for frying

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

     granulated sugar and golden brown sugar.

3.  Cinnamon sugar: In a small bowl, stir sugar with cinnamon.
