Milk: 450 ml/2 cups and a quarter
Salad oil: 1 tablespoon
Honey: 2 tablespoons
Cut the kabocha roughly and cook for 3 minutes inside a microwave oven.
Check it is soft enough before mashing it.
It does not have to be mashed down to paste.
In a bowl pour milk, beaten egg, syrup, salt and beat the whole well.
Add all flour and baking powder and mix well.
Add kabocha and olive salad oil and mix well till you obtain a smooth paste.
Use a non-stick frypan if possible.
Oil the frypan with a piece of kitchen paper imbibed with oil to avoid using too much oil.

Turn it over after 20^30 seconds and cook again for same length of time.
