Description

Barriguitas de Vieja (Pumpkin Fritters): Puerto Rican pumpkin fritters. Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Almost like a soft cakey donut with crispy edges.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Kambocha Squash Puree (about 2 Cups Or 1/2 Small Squash)
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 6 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons Pumpkin Spice
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • Vegetable Oil, For Frying

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Cut the squash into wedges. Generously spray a sheet pan with nonstick spray or line with parchment paper. Place wedges on a sheet pan and roast in the oven for 40 minutes or until fork tender.

When the squash has cooled enough to handle, scoop flesh out into a food processor. Process until smooth. Add flour to pureed squash, pulse until just combined. Add egg, sugars, vanilla, spice and salt. Pulse until well blended.

Heat a skillet with 1 1/2 inch of vegetable oil to 350ºF. Using 2 spoons, scoop some of the mixture into one spoon and use the other to scrape the mixture into hot oil. It should quickly form a shell and begin to lightly float. Using a fork, quickly flip and press down with the back of the fork to form a patty; flip back. Fry each side until golden orange. The fritters should be firm when pressed with the back of the fork.

Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain. They should be crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

Serve dusted with powdered sugar or with a side of ice cream.
