Pampoenkoekie Recipe

by - December 14, 2020

 Pumpkin is one of the most mainstream and adored vegetables in South Africa. There are endless assortments, you will never get exhausted with them. You can cook it from various perspectives. Bubble it shortly of water, crush and serve or meal it in the broiler and present with a filling. 

One of my #1 methods of utilizing pumpkin is through pampoenkoekies. It is a brilliant expansion to any dinner... You can utilize numerous kinds of pumpkin and in South Africa the most well-known pumpkin utilized is Herbert Squash. At the point when we lived in England we were unable to discover it however, so we attempted butternut. It worked brilliantly... 

Try to ensure the pumpkin is extremely dry. On the off chance that it is watery, the pampoenkoekies will stick and won't be anything but difficult to make. I know there are numerous individuals all around the globe, including my awesome spouse, that accepts that vegetables should be appetizing and sweet things should be eaten after the primary supper, not with it, but rather trust me when I state, it is magnificent. 

In the event that you are content with eating pumpkin for dessert, at that point why not? Simply serve the pampoenkoekies with either cinnamon sugar or the sauce that follows toward the finish of the formula. Individuals will be intrigued...
