  1. Sieve the flour and baking powder into a large mixing bowl and add a pinch of salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Make a well in the centre of the flour then whisk in the egg and milk mixture slowly, until you have a smooth batter.
  2. Heat 1 tsp sunflower oil in a 22cm nonstick frying pan. When hot, add a ladleful of the batter, swirling to cover the base. Fry for 1 min or until bubbles appear on the surface, then flip and cook until golden. Repeat until you have made 4 pancakes in total, adding 1 more tsp oil each time. Cover and keep warm.
  3. Heat the remaining 1 tsp sunflower oil in the same pan, set over a high heat. Once hot, add the sliced banana and orange segments. Fry until golden, then turn and fry for another minute or so on the other side. Add the orange juice, maple syrup (or honey) and cinnamon. Let the liquid reduce for 1 min, then remove the fruit mix from the heat and transfer to a bowl.
  4. To serve, add the fried banana and orange to each pancake and fold into a parcel. Serve with the yogurt, scatter over the pumpkin seeds and dust with a little extra cinnamon.
