Pumpkin Fritters

This a typical Christmas dessert in Portugal (in portuguese called Filhoses de Abóbora) .

  • 600g pumpkin
  • 12 tbspoons plain flour
  • 2 tbspoons sugar
  • 1 tbspoon baking powder
  • 5 eggs
  • 50ml orange juice
How to:
  1. You will have to cook the pumpkin the day before. Boil it until very soft, drain all the water very well and leave it for 8/10 hours to dry.
  2. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl, using a blender, until the batter is very smooth.
  3. In a large frying pan heat vegetable oil (you need a large quantity, say 5-7 cm deep) and fry scoops of the batter until golden brown (2min each side).
  4. In the end, while still warm, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon on top.
