Zucchini Pancakes

This is a recipe from my best friend’s Mom, Ginny. She makes these in summer when Uncle Bob’s crop of zucchini is in. (Of which Uncle bob is my best friend, Shelley’s uncle).


  • 1 cup zucchini grated
  • 1 whole egg, beaten
  • 4 Tbsp. AP flour (or I use pancake mix like Bisquick too, makes them fluffier)
  • 1 tsp. minced onion
  • 1 tsp. baking powder (makes them fluffy)
  • 1tsp granulated garlic powder (I added this for more flavor)
  • oil for cooking (2-3 tbsp)


Mix ingredients together and fry them in hot oil.

I put a big spoonful in the skillet and then use the spoon to flatten it down into the pancake form.

I personally do not shallow fry mine like Ginny showed me, I just put little oil in skillet or on my griddle and make them more in the line of a pancake.

Now I was taught to eat them with sour cream but I have since had them with plain apple sauce if you want them sweeter and it is tasty too.

Options: You can grate up yellow summer squash or carrots too, add fresh herbs or fresh garlic. These would be great as the bun of a turkey burger. Enjoy!
