    Pampoenpoffertjies – Pumpkin Fritters in a Syrup

Before my husband moved here from the Netherlands, he had a huge disliking of pumpkin, after one serving of these he changed his mind. I came up with this recipe by trying and testing different ones and making my own combination, so here is my Pumpkin Fritter recipe. Ingredients for the Fritters: 500 ml Cooked, Mashed Pumpkin 250 ml Self Raising Flour, if you don’t have any,…

This recipe is from my grandmother’s recipe collection – which I might add is a old file holder filled with cut outs from magazines, I’m sure you all know what I’m talking about. I just love this cake and it’s my…
