Preparation Directions

  • COMBINE syrup, water, molasses, cinnamon stick and cloves in small saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer 5 minutes or until mixture thickens slightly. Strain through fine sieve, reserving syrup in small bowl. Add orange marmalade and lime juice to hot syrup, stirring until blended.
  • STIR together flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and anise in small bowl until blended. Heat 1 1/2 inches of canola oil in heavy large saucepan over medium heat to 350°F.
  • WHISK egg in medium bowl. Stir in pumpkin and sugar until blended. Gradually stir in flour mixture just until blended. Drop batter by tablespoonfuls into hot oil, several at a time so as not to overcrowd pan. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown, turning often. Drain on paper towels. Cool 5 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired. Serve warm, drizzled with warm syrup.
