Sweet pumpkin fritters to help picky eaters explore tastes.


Lets Cook

Cook the pumpkin

  1. Cut a medium butternut pumpkin into cubes. Steam or cook the cubes for 30 minutes until soft.

Prepare the pumpkin fritter batter

  1. In a large mixing bowl mash the pumpkin with a fork or potato masher.
    Add all-purpose flour and 1 baking powder. Mix with a wooden spoon.
    In a different bowl beat the eggs.
    Add the egg mixture to the pumpkin mixture and mix until you have a soft batter.

Fry the pumpkin fritters

  1. Add 30ml of canola oil to a pan or saucepan.
    When the oil is hot dish large spoonfuls of batter into the pan.
    Fry the fritters until they are golden brown on both sides.

Dust the fritters with sugar and cinamon

  1. In a small bowl mix 3 tablespoons of white sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon.
    While the fritters are still hot, dust them with the sugar mixture so that the sugar dissolves. This will give them a lovely sweet taste.

Dish up the food

  1. Dish a plate of food or each member of the family. Each plate should have a piece of chicken, rice and some pumpkin fritters.
    Help your picky eater toddler to taste the salty chicken, the neutral rice, and the sweet pumpkin fritters and name each taste.
