Butternut Fritters Recipe

Try these crisp fritters dipped in a creamy syrup sauce and dusted with cinnamon.



Prep Time

10 minutes

Cooking Time

10 minutes


Makes 8-10 fritters

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup (250ml) cooked SPAR Freshline butternut
  • ½ cup (125ml) SPAR cake flour
  • 1 tsp (5ml) baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • pinch salt
  • 3 cups SPAR sunflower oil for frying
  • 2 tsp (10ml) cinnamon


  • ¼ cup (60ml) SPAR syrup
  • ¼ cup (60ml) SPAR sour cream

Recipe Method

  1. For the fritters, mix all the ingredients together well.
  2. If it’s a tad too thick add a splash of milk; if it’s too thin add a sprinkle of extra flour.
  3. Heat a pan with about 2 – 3cm of oil.
  4. As soon as the oil is hot enough (test it by dropping a little batter into the oil and if it bubbles immediately it’s ready) add about 2 Tbsp batter per fritter and cook for 2 – 3 minutes on each side. Don’t let the oil get too hot. If you have a thermometer, 160C is the ideal heat.
  5. To make the sauce mix the syrup and sour cream.
  6. Drizzle over the fritters and dust with cinnamon.
