Pumpkin fritters...

It's only this year, this Autumn to be exact, that I discovered wonderful, tinned pumpkin puree. Where have you been all my life?! I know - better late than never. I've found an interesting recipe on Pinterest (a social media platform I'm a little bit addicted to, but who isn't) and decided to give it a go (changing it only ever so slightly, to suit my vegan diet).

Pumpkin fritters, what's not to like. So good I couldn't stop eating them. What's more, my 2 little sous chefs ate 3 each too! I can't really find a better recommendation, that a toddler munching away, with a smile on her face asking for more. I hope you'll give it a go. It's very easy (my little sous chefs made the batter almost all by themselves) and it's quite quick to make too. It's at its best on the same day of making - but don't worry, it won't last longer than that anyway...

How to make it...

- 1 cup pumpkin, from the tin or cooked and pureed (I used the easier option - tinned one)
- 1 cup flour
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 tablespoon caster sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 aquafaba egg (3 tablespoon aquafaba)
- 1/4 cup oat or soy milk
- pinch of salt
- oil, for deep frying
- caster sugar for coating


- Combine all the ingredients in a big bowl and mix until you have a smooth batter. 
- Heat the oil in a medium saucepan and fry spoonfuls of the batter (teaspoon will be just the right size, and drop the little balls off the spoon with a help if your finger, little bit sticky business but fun!). 
- Fry the fitters until golden brown and cooked throughout, approximately 2-3 minutes - they should rise (puff up) by that time. 
- Remove from the oil and allow to drain on kitchen paper. 
- Continue until all the fritters are cooked. 
- Wait till they are cooled and coat them in caster sugar (or a mix of caster sugar and cinnamon). 
- Enjoy, as they're at their best on the same day!
