Zucchini Pancakes

  • Author: Polish Housewife
  • Yield: 20 pancakes 1x


Think potato pancakes, but made with zucchini



  • 2 cups grated zucchini
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried oregano or thyme
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • canola oil, for frying


  1. Spread zucchini on a paper towel to remove any moisture
  2. Beat eggs
  3. Add onion, flour, cheese, baking powder, salt , oregano or thyme, and pepper flakes to eggs
  4. Stir in grated zucchini
  5. Add 2 – 3 tablespoons of oil to a large frying pan, over medium heat
  6. Carefully place heaping tablespoons of mixture into hot oil, spreading a bit with the back of the spoon (don’t over crowd the pan, you’ll need room to maneuver a spatula for flipping, you’ll fry several batches)
  7. Fry until golden brown, 2 – 3 minutes on each side
  8. Drain on paper towels
