2 large eggs
1/4 cup yogurt (or vegan yogurt)

In a large mixing bowl, mix flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
Add the oil gradually and stir into to the flour mixture until you have a crumbly mixture.
Add the cheese, shallots and corn, fold into the mix.
Blend yogurt and milk in a separate bowl. Whisk in the eggs.
