Pampoenkoekies are a South African tradition. I don’t make them as often as I would like to but when I do they are always so good! I thought I would share my recipe with you. I am translating it from Afrikaans so bear with me 🙂 (I speak almost more Afrikaans now than English so sometimes my English goes a little downhill;)
250g blended, cooked, pumpkin
5-7 ml baking powder
pinch of salt
5 ml lemon juice
1 ml cinnamon (optional)
Drain the cooked pumpkin and blend it. Whisk the eggs in a bowl and add the pumpkin. Sift the flour and baking powder and mix it in along with all the other ingredients.
Heat a frying pan with a little oil. Drop tablespoons of the batter in and cook them like you would a crumpet/pikelet. They are heavenly when warm!
That’s about all there is to it. The Afrikaans recipe was a mile long so I just gave you the method I use. It’s simple, easy, and it works!
Enjoy and have a great weekend!
Ps. Note my African tablecloth! My Mom-in-law brought it back from South Africa for me in January!
