    I saw a recipe for cabbage cakes on you tube. A hard of cabbage shredded, cup of flour, two eggs salt and pepper. Fry like a pan cake or potato cake.
    Sounded tasteless.
    So I thumped it.
    My wife doesn’t like cabbage so I made it just for me.
    Sautés one small onion, four thick bacon slices cut in to small pieces and a couple of ounces sliced mushrooms.
    Took half a cabbage head sliced and chopped, half a cup of almond flour( watching my carbs) and added the sauté to it. Added the eggs beat up and mixed well. Made patties and fried. Was much impressed.

    Sounds interesting, like a cabbage frittata or cabbage omelette or cabbage pancake or Okonomiyaki.

    Guess I'll have to thumb through my old cookbooks and see what I can find.

    So far, I'm coming up empty, and I've gone through a half dozen books.
    In the mean time, this post needs a picture, so here is one of some cabbages.

    Can’t recall the name of the Roman Emperor, forth century I’m thinking, He gave up the throne and retired to Capua. He wrote a letter talking about how simple his life was... ‘but you should see my cabbages’ he wrote.

    Saw the thing about cabbage cake and wondered is it was truly a cake recipe. When in North Dakota, we had sauerkraut cake, a moist Chocolate cake that had a small bit of well rinsed chopped sauerkraut in it. (couldn't taste it) as for the cabbage cake referenced by the OP, anything like Bubble and Squeak?

    I think I saw a recipe for sauerkraut cake.
    Now you got me thinking about rhubarb cake, that stuff is to die for. Don't get between me and the rhubarb cake. :D

    Those colcannon cakes sound good, I might have to try those.

    Colcannon that I’ve had had taters mixed in, Karakee Tearney recorded a recipe with turnips.
    Bad Scotsman am I, as I’ve not ate it this century I’m thinking. Last time I recall eating it was a Christmas party in ‘95.

    I don't think I've ever had them that I can remember but they look delicious.

    This one's for you, Check out that nice hearth. She needs some period knives
    though, otherwise a nice setup.
