Pumpkin Fritters & Cinnamon Syrup

Pumpkin Fritters with Cinnamon Syrup ~ Pumpkin fritters in a gooey, thick cinnamon syrup #PumpkinRecipe #PumpkinFritters #CinnamonSyrup

Pumpkin Fritters ... yeah, had them many times before - BUT never with this awesome Cinnamon Syrup!

What have I missed all these years???!! I do hope I am not the only one that's a little behind ...

This made a delicious dessert, enough for 4 - 6 servings, depending on how much the people you serve it to, like Pumpkin Fritters.  Again, it was only Roy and I, but I still decided to make the full recipe.  We had the leftovers {cold, by the way} the following morning. The syrup did not go all sugary or anything, but it might have to do with the fact that I kept them in a sealed container and not in the refrigerator.

Serve them warm in cold or rainy weather or cold in hot weather - whichever, it is delicious!  {And I have to  think of something else I can use this syrup with - it's just too delicious, to serve only with Fritters..}

Pumpkin Fritters & Cinnamon Syrup

2 cups cooked Pumpkin
1 cup Cake Flour
2 t Baking Powder
1/2 t Salt
1 Egg, beaten

Oil, to fry

1 TB Butter
3/4 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Milk
1 t Ground Cinnamon
2 t Corn Flour
2/3 cup Water

1.) Mash the Pumpkin finely - add the Cake Flour, Baking Powder, Salt and the Egg - keep mashing until well combined.
2.) Drop spoonfuls in hot Oil, flatten slightly and fry both sides until done and golden brown.
3.) Drain on paper towels and transfer to a serving dish.
4.) Bring the Butter, Sugar, Milk and Cinnamon to the boil - stir regularly - watch for over boil!
5.) Mix the Corn Flour with the Water and add slowly to the Syrup mixture - stir continuously, it will bubble up - as soon as the syrup has thickened, pour it over the Pumpkin Fritters.

Serve and enjoy!

***have a laugh at my permitted expense {whink} - when I made the syrup... the first time ... I accidentally took the CUMIN from the spices and not the CINNAMON - I only realized my mistake (the bottles all look the same, anyhow...) when I added it to the syrup and instead of smelling the expected delicious Cinnamon, this awful smell hit me! After quite a few, very un-lady like words, and Roy in full absentia,  I rinsed the pot and started again. Fortunately the syrup itself does not take long to make..***

  12. I didn't realize they ate a lot of pumpkin in Australia we should eat more and decorate them less in the States. I hope you are sharing these fritters today on foodie friday. They look fantastic.
