Pumpkin Fritters {side dish}

I grew up eating Pumpkin Fritters as a side dish. Many people think it is only a dessert, but do try them next time you are looking for a sweetish side.

My serving plates {as I mentioned a hundred a few times before}should always be colorful, but another thing I am into is serving two sides, one salty and the other sweet. This is with simple weekday dinners, but most of the time on Sundays.

Of course you can have this as dessert as well, add more cinnamon sugar a syrup or whipped cream and you are set!

Pumpkin Fritters {side dish}

recipe adapted by me from the recipe book GESINSKOS
{makes about 25 fritters}

500g Pumpkin, cooked and well drained
1 Extra-Large Egg
1/2 cup Self-Raising Flour
1/2 t Salt
Oil, to shallow fry
Cinnamon Sugar {3 TB Sugar mixed with 1 TB Cinnamon}

1.) Mix the Pumpkin, Egg, Flour and Salt until just combined.
2.) Heat the Oil over medium heat - drop tablespoonfuls of the Pumpkin mixture into the Oil {flatten slightly} - cook until both sides are golden brown - remove from pan, drain on a paper towel and immediately sprinkle with a little Cinnamon Sugar.

Serve warm.

***Because not all Pumpkin are the same when cooked - add a little more Flour if you feel your mixture is too runny***

Do you have sweet and salty side dishes on your dinner plate?

Ciao for now,

Linking up with these cool parties:


  1. mmm I love pumpkin but I have never had it as dessert. side dishes depend mainly on what I feelmlike cooking on the night :)

  2. Hi Linda, just letting you know that your link to Food on Friday: Marinades & Rubs was featured in my Need Some Inspiration? Series today. Have a nice week.

  3. I think I could eat these just by themselves :D

  4. I have some cans of pumpkin to use up and you gave me the way to do it. These look delicious and I am looking forward to maybe, making this tomorrow. Thanks for sharing.

  5. For some reason I'm thinking these would be really good with a spicy peanut sauce I just developed. I'm going to have to try these out!

  6. Linda, thanks for adding to the collection - these almost look like doughnuts. Cheers
