Recipe's preparation

    Cooking the pumpkin
  1. The pumpkin must be as dry as possible once cooked so I place it in the rice basket and put in 1/2 L of water to steam the pumpkin for about 20 minutes(this depends on the size and type of pumpkin being used). Once the pumpkin is soft all the way through then it is ready.


    Once cooked remove pumpkin and pat dry with a kitchen paper. 


    Discard water and pu the pumpkin back into the TM bowl.

  2. Making the batter
  3. Add all the dry ingredients.


    10sec/ speed 4


    add eggs.


    45sec/speed 4.


    The batter should almost hold its shape. If to stiff add a small amount of milk. 


    If it is too runny then add a little more flour.


    Add oil to frying pan on medium high heat.


    Scoop a heaped table spoon of batter and drop into frying pan.


    Fry until firm andgolden on the underside(this is important otherwise it will run everywhere)


    The flip over and fry until golden brown.


    To test if they are cooked press firmly and you should see that they springback into shape.


    Eat as a side dish or as a dessert with cinnamon sugar.


    Enjoy
