Grannys Pumpkin Fritters

This is a reminder of the days when nothing was ever wasted and left-overs got a new lease on life!

My Gran, who now lives in Durban (South Africa) with my Aunt, Uncle and their gorgeous little poppets – but used to live in a little town called Port Alfred in the Eastern Cape used to make these and they are what dreams are made of.

Wondering what to do with your leftover pumpkin???

Fear not, Gran has the perfect recipe to make pumpkin fritters… super easy, tasty and can either be served as a savoury or as a sweet (topped with sugar & cinnamon).
