I use real pumpkin but, you could try it with canned pumpkin and that would be yummy too.
Pumpkin Fritters (aka Pumpkin Donuts)
- 1 small pumpkin (2 cups mashed pumpkin)
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 - 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp salt
- oil for frying
- confectioner's sugar
This year I decided to make 3 small pumpkins at once. After I prepared the pumpkins I portioned out 3 containers with 2 cups of mashed pumpkin in each. I fried one batch up right away, refrigerated one for the following day and froze one to save for Thanksgiving. This way, I just combine the ingredients and fry without the hassle of preparing a whole pumpkin each time.
Hope you are enjoying pumpkin season! I sure am.
