My savoy cabbage was big as a Pomelo fruit. Original recipe called for 120 g flour butI substituted the flour with oats.

Put the sliced vegetables in a large bowl and add the beaten eggs, marjoram and seazoning. Add the oats and mix together.

Heat a large pan and drizzle with oil. Place a large spoonful of batter in the centre of the pan. Cook until golden, then turn to cook the other side. Repeat with the remaining batter.

To serve, drizzle the sauce over the pancakes.

To make the sauce, place all the ingredients in a small saucepan and mix together.
