Zucchini Pancakes

Do you still have some zucchini you are needing to use up!?! We still do and I want to share with you one of my absolute favorite ways to use it.

One day I came home from Jr. High expecting to see one of the traditional after-school-snacks my mom typically made.  Instead, on the table was one of these topped with sour cream.  My mom told me they were called “Zucchini Pancakes.”  I then proceeded to ask her, “Pancakes? Well, why do they have sour cream on them?!”  My small little mind only associated pancakes with sweetness and syrup.  After one bite, I was hooked!  These soon became a new favorite in the late summer/early fall in my parents home and now in my own home. We love them!

    A fun and new way to use up some of that zucchini!



    1. In a large bowl stir grated zucchini, lemon juice, garlic, onion, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and egg with a wooden spoon.
    2. Add in Parmesan Cheese and flour and stir to combine. You do not want to beat this mixture. It can be over beaten and effect the outcome of the batter.
    3. Place some batter into hot oil and lightly spread out with a spoon. Cook for about 2 minutes or until lightly browned and flip over and cook remaining side until it is lightly browned.
    4. Serve warm with sour cream, avocado, tomatoes... or however you want to enjoy it, that is just how I like mine :)
