This recipe is a bit of a make it and see - you might like a little more spice, a little less sugar... have a go and see what you think!
Picture from http://babootie.com/
1 small pumpkin
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon all spice
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon brown sugar (or whatever sugar you have)
self raising flour
caster sugar to dust
De-seed, peel, chop up and boil your pumpkin - it is cooked when it feels soft to cut with a sharp knife. then mash it and stir in the sugar, spices and egg.
Add flour a little at a time until you get a thick batter. Shallow fry a tablespoon of batter at a time and dust the fritters with caster sugar.
You can eat them on their own or serve them with ice cream or maple syrup.
