Iana’s Pumpkin Fritters

Iana’s Pumpkin Fritters!

Iana has been working with me since I reopened after COVID “ended” and Connie moved to the US.  I loved my old Pumpkin Fritter recipe, but when I tasted Iana’s, I dropped mine for hers.  We now make her fritters regularly for our classes.  These fritters can be served as either sweet or savory.  If served as a sweet, dust with cinnamon and icing sugar.  Substitute ripe banana or ripe plantains in the same quantity if you want a different flavour.  Finally, this is a vegan option because it does not use eggs.  Enjoy!

Pound of pumpkin
1 Teaspoon of salt
½ Teaspoon of cinnamon

Peel and cube the pumpkin and then boil it with the teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon of cinnamon for about 20 minutes, or until soft.  When finished, drain it and let it cool.

½ Teaspoon of cinnamon
1 Tablespoon of vanilla
½ Cup of brown (aka “natural”) sugar to taste
2 Cups of flour
½ Teaspoon of baking powder

Mash the pumpkin and season it with the sugar, vanilla and cinnamon.  Once done, slowly add in the flour and baking powder a little bit at a time to have the batter reach a texture similar to pancake batter.  When ready, drop tablespoons sizes into hot oil and fry until golden brown.
