    1. Heat the cabbage and butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook till cabbage is soft, about 20 minutes.
    2. In a separate frying pan over medium heat, add a drizzle of oil, then the eggs. Scramble the eggs and then add to the cabbage. Season and set aside.
    3. For the pancakes, combine flour, sugar and salt. Make a well in the centre and add the eggs. Start gradually adding the milk whilst whisking.
    4. Heat a small non-stick frying pan with a little oil over medium heat. Pour a little batter into the pan and rotate to spread batter evenly over the bottom. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, till holes appear on the surface and the edges start to become dry. Flip and cook on the other side for up to 1 minute. Repeat with remaining batter.
    5. Lay out the pancakes and spoon the filling 1 tablespoon at a time, wrapping them into a pouch. Set aside.
    6. Heat butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the pancake pouches and brown on both sides till a nice golden brown. Serve immediately.
