Taste of Fall: Pumpkin Fritters with Caramel Sauce + Bonus Links

I don't know about you, but my October flashed by. Maybe that was because the tiny one kept me busy and sleepless {oh, but they are worth it!}!
Today I have a quick round-up of Fall treats for you all!
Now I must warn you, even though I usually never put up untried recipes, I'm putting one up today. I'm sharing it here, because it looks so amazing ~ and ~ I plan on making it this week!
If it doesn't turn out, I'll let you know!

Pumpkin Fritters with Caramel Sauce

For the fritters
1 cup pumpkin, cooked and pureed
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp caster sugar {if unavailable, grind regular white sugar a little finer, but don't make powdered sugar!}
1 egg
¼ c milk
pinch of salt
oil of choice for deep frying

Caramel Sauce
¾ c sugar
1 c cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 Tbsp butter
½ c golden syrup {can also substitute Karo syrup or honey}
1 tsp sea salt flakes {omit if you do not like salted caramel}

To make the fritters, combine all the ingredients and mix until you have a smooth batter.
Heat the oil in a medium saucepan and fry spoonfuls of the batter until golden brown and cooked through, approximately 2-3 minutes.
Remove from oil and allow to drain.
Continue until all fritters are cooked.
To make the caramel sauce, combine all the ingredients in a medium saucepan and allow to cook over a medium heat for 10-15 minutes until the sauce is thick and glossy.
Pour the syrup over the fritters and serve.
Makes about 20 fritters.

Enjoy! {special thanks to Alida at Simply Delicious for both the recipe and the pic!}
