Kids new favourite – pampoenkoekies

Yes, when they were little they did not really want to eat mamma’s pampoenkoekies but since this year, it has become one of lovely children’s favourites….. They can’t eat enough of it…It has always been one of my favourite foods as well. We love eating it sprinkled with cinnamon sugar while my husband prefers it salty.. no sugar, just salt 🙂 You can really eat it anyway you prefer.

Ingredients:
1 large butternut (you can use any pumpkin you like, butternut is easily available to us and we like it a lot!)
1 egg
3 tablespoons of flour (we use gluten free flour)
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder (also gluten free), makes it nice and fluffy…
pinch of salt

Method:
1. You first need to cook the pumpkin. Make sure it is cooked well and mash it. The pumpkin must be dry so get rid of excess water.
2. Let it cool down for about half an hour. Then add the flour, egg, salt and baking powder. Mix well and let stand for another 10 minutes.
3. Use a non stick pan and put spoons full of mixture in the pan. I bake 4 at a time…




Once you finished frying all your pampoenkoekies, serve warm with cinnamon sugar, salt or a nice sweet sauce…
