Vegetable Pancakes {The Zucchini is The Star In This Recipe}


This recipe came about because I had exactly one cup of grated zucchini leftover from making a Dark Chocolate Zucchini Cake with Mocha Frosting, and I didn't know what I was going to do with it.

I could have frozen it, but I didn't want to freeze such a small amount, so I started looking for another recipe.  Actually, I needed a recipe to make for My Girl Paula feature this week.  After thumbing through my cookbooks, I found a recipe for Vegetable Pancakes in a Paula Deen cookbook that only uses one cup of grated zucchini.   How perfect is that?

These cakes turned out so good. They are easy to make with few ingredients. At first I didn't know if they would be flavorful enough, but I was not disappointed!  They are delicious, and I will make them again and again. They are great served with a Jalapeno Jelly.



Vegetable Pancakes
Recipe Source:  Paula Deen, Food Network
    Ingredients:
    1 cup zucchini, grated
    1 cup carrots, grated
    1/4 cup milk
    1 egg
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 cup flour
    2 green onions, sliced
    2 tablespoon oil
Directions:
In a mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. In another bowl, grate carrots, zucchini, and onions, and toss. In another bowl, beat together the egg and milk, toss into the bowl of grate vegetables, and stir. Add this to the dry ingredients and stir until combined.

Using a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium heat. Spoon the batter by tablespoons into the pan, making a few pancakes at a time. Cook about 2 minutes on each side and golden brown. Add the remaining oil to the pan as needed. Serve pancakes at once.
Yield: 8 servings

  2. I just joined the Paula group one month ago and am so happy I did. I'll be making these pancakes this weekend sometime. I'm hoping to convince my 8-year old daughter they are potato pancakes ; ) A girl has to do what a girl has to do, right? Glad to hear that you enjoyed them. Welcome to the Paula group!!

  6. Thanks for linking with Garden Variety Wednesday!
    I would very much enjoy these with pepper jelly!
    Also, I like to have a folder full of zucchini recipes--we grow a lot and get tired of the same thing all the time. Thanks!
