    Amazing cakes I didn’t have dill but they were still very tasty I also added a dash of cayenne powder. I like heat. I also choped up some kale I had in the fridge. Make sure it’s chopped small and not wet. Definitely going to make again. I cooked on my cast iron A few minutes each side. Medium heat! I made half the recipe and make 6 cakes I froze some too.
