Preparation steps


For the pancake mixture, separate the eggs. Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until stiff. Mix the egg yolks smoothly with the milk, honey, flour and baking powder. Add more or less milk as necessary. Leave to stand for about 20 minutes, then fold in the stiffly beaten egg whites and the grated pumpkin or butternut squash (keeping back 2 tbsp). Heat a little butter in a nonstick frying pan and put small heaps of pancake mixture (about 1 tbsp) into the pan. Fry for 1-2 minutes, until golden brown, then turn over and fry the other side. Take out of the pan and keep warm while you make the rest of the pancakes


Blanch the reserved grated pumpkin or squash briefly in hot water and drain.


Arrange the pancakes on plates, scatter with grated squash and pumpkin seeds and serve dusted with icing sugar.
