Pumpkin and banana fritters

On Thanksgiving morning when it is cold outside and the snow is falling ever so softly, these fritters are indeed a warm welcome with a cup of coffee. The smell of the cinnamon sugar erases all the anxiety of getting the bird into the oven already!! OR just make these when you want to spend a healing moment with a loved one!

  • pinch kosher salt
  • 1 T plus 1 t sugar
  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 c milk
  • 1 t of ginger, cardamom and cinnamon
  • 1 banana sliced
  • 1/2 c pumpkin puree
  • 1 t banana extract
  • 1 t vanilla extract

Sift the flour and salt into a bowl and stir in the sugar. Make a well in the center and add the egg, butter, extracts, spices and the milk. mix to form a thick pancake batter.Add the pumpkin and then lastly fold in bananas.

Heat a cup of oil in a shallow pan and fry tablespoons of the batter . Flip with a fork and cook until both sides are golden brown and puffy. Drain well on paper towels and dust with cinnamon sugar. Mix 2 t sugar with 2 t cinnamon for this batch. Makes about 24.

Hi Nazarina,

I only have one problem here ...I can't decide which recipes to include ...they all look so good! I'm not kidding, I think you should have your own food magazine or TV show!

I want to include two in the fall issue. Which would you most like to see included?
