Susana Boones Pumpkin Fritters/Vintage Recipe
Step back in time to explore a culinary treasure from a bygone era. The recipe I’s about to share comes from one of my cherished vintage cookbooks and is a testament to the timeless appeal of old-fashioned flavors. Having tried several recipes, I can vouch for their timeless appeal. These pumpkin fritters are like pancakes but thinner and packed with flavors. The Pumpkin fritters would be great for a Sunday brunch as a side dish, or a heartwarming family holiday breakfast.
· 2 cups pumpkin puree
· 3 eggs lightly beaten.
· 1 cup sifted flour
· 2/3 cup sugar
· 1 tsp. Vanilla
· 1 tsp. Nutmeg
· 1/4 tsp salt
1. In a bowl combine 2 cups of pumpkin puree, 3 eggs slightly beaten, and 1 cup of sifted flour.
2. Add the sugar, vanilla, nutmeg, and salt to the pumpkin mixture and stir until mixed well.
3. In a heavy-duty skillet heat ¼ inch butter over moderately high heat until it is very hot but not smoking.
4. Drop the pumpkin mixture by tablespoons in the butter and cook the fritters until they are browned on both sides.
5. Remove the fritters with a slotted spoon, drain on a paper towel, and dust generously with sifted confectioner’s sugar.
And there you have a taste of nostalgia on a plate making holiday mornings with family and friends complete. Enjoy!!!
