  2. Whisk together the yoghurt, milk, vegetable oil and eggs in a bowl until evenly blended; set aside. Stir together the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Pour the wet mixture into the well, then stir until well combined. Fold the cooled cabbage and onions into the batter.

I used spelt flour, and changed the yogurt and milk to soy milk. These made a fantastic breakfast pancake! I also added some caraway seeds for added flavor. Thanks for posting the recipe! I will be making these again! - 05 Mar 2014
