We cut the pumpkin into parts, select the most ripe piece, remove the seeds, seed bag, cut off the peel.
For sweet pastries I advise you to use nutmeg. There are even cloying sweet vegetables, and this is the best choice.
Cut the pulp into cubes. Then we cook in any way convenient for you: steam, cook in a microwave oven or bake in the oven. Before baking the vegetables in the oven, pour them with olive or vegetable oil.
The pulp of the nutmeg in about 10-15 minutes of heat treatment will be ready.
Put slightly cooled vegetables in a blender, add granulated sugar, break eggs, pour 1/3 teaspoon of fine salt.
Pour the kefir, beat the mixture for a few minutes to dissolve the granulated sugar.
Mix the dry ingredients - pour in a bowl of corn and wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder.
