Recipe for Cabbage Pancakes

If you have some cabbage sitting in the fridge and you don’t know what to do with it, here is your way out: make cabbage pancakes. They are much like Ukrainian “deruny” but made from cabbage and onions.

My better half is not a big fan of cabbage in general, but he loves these and always asks for seconds.

Cabbage pancakes work great for breakfast or lunch as a dish on its own. But they are not sweet, so I suppose can be served as a side dish as well.

Listed amount of ingredients will produce about 15 pancakes.

Ingredients:
