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

Vegetable Pancakes, Vegetable Pancakes are easy to make with few ingredients.  zucchini is the star of the 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.

    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
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.
