Pumpkin is one of my favorite things and in the fall of the year I can’t get enough of it. These pumpkin fritters sprinkled with confectionery sugar are a treat your whole family will enjoy. They never last long at my house.2 cups all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons double-acting baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ginger 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg 1/8 teaspoon allspice 1/4 cup brown sugar 2 large eggs 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 3/4 cup buttermilk 3/4 cup 100% pumpkin (Not the pumpkin pie mix) 1 cup oil (I use Canola) In a large bowl whisk together flour, spices, baking powder, salt and brown sugar. Add eggs, butter, vanilla, buttermilk and pumpkin. Mix well with a spoon. Heat your oil in a skillet till sizzling. I use an ice cream scoop to dip batter into oil. Fry to golden brown on one side, then turn and cook the other side. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. Sprinkle with confectionery sugar while still warm. Makes about 1 1/2 dozen fritters depending on size you make them. Enjoy!
