Zucchini Pancakes

No, not fritters, but pancakes!

If you still have some zucchini in your garden, here’s another delicious recipe for you!

Zucchini Pancakes

  • 2 small-medium zucchini
  • 1/2 cup (60g) wholemeal flour
  • 1 cup (250ml) basil leaves
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups (150g) grated cheese (parmesan/cheddar etc)
  • salt and plenty of black pepper

Put everything in your food processor except the cheese, and whizz to a soft dough. Stir in the cheese. Heat a little oil in a pan and spoon dollops into the hot oil, then fry just like pancakes, turning when they start to bubble in the middle.

These taste great with a yoghurt, cucumber and dill sauce!

  1. Those look pretty simple and oh, so tasty! I’ve made zucchini corn fritters, but they require a whole lot more effort. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Cathy. I’ve got a hankering to try it!

  2. Hope to get some more zukes to try this πŸ™‚ Planted some more and they are getting their leaves. With the heat I expect a good size plants and flowers before Sept so I might get some late summer zukes. My container plants wilted in the heat and did not produce much.

    • Mine didn’t do quite as well this year, either. I have never tried planting a second lot, but that’s not a bad idea… by the beginning of September the heat has gone and they would probably do well. Look forward to hearing how yours perform! πŸ˜€

  3. Great idea..I have many Zucchini bread many times and I know how good it is. Have you tried Chocolate Zucchini Cake? I lost the recipe but it was very flavorable when I made it years ago. I bet you don’t need recipes because you are such a great baker.
    If I were you neighbor I would probably weigh a lot more….but I’d have a smile on my fat face. πŸ™‚

    • I made a wonderful chocolate zucchini cake with walnuts last year… oh I DO need recipes! LOL! I must seek that one out… πŸ˜‰
      PS If you were my neighbour I would probably bake much more often and we would both be enormous! πŸ˜€
