Serves: 25 fritters
Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ΒΌ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup pure pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • oil, for frying
  • powdered sugar, for sprinkling
Instructions
  1. Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and sugar in a medium sized bowl. Whisk in the pumpkin puree, followed by the egg, then finally the milk. Beat until smooth.
  2. Heat your oil over high heat. Test the heat of your oil by dropping a small amount of the batter into it. If it sizzles immediately, it is ready. Turn down the heat to medium-high and add in 5-7 two-tablespoon-sized dollops of dough, cooking for 2 minutes or so on each side, until golden. Remove and drain on a plate lined with paper towels. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  3. Sprinkle the hot fritters with powdered sugar, and enjoy! These are especially good with a little honey on the side.
