  • Serves 2-3 (easily adapted to more)
Ingredients
  • 1.5 pounds zucchini
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Directions
  1. Shred the zucchini, layering with salt. (I sprinkled about a half teaspoon of salt after each addition of zucchini). Place in a colander to drain for at least half an hour, stirring occasionally. Squeeze out the remaining liquid, as much as you can.
  2. Mix the zucchini in with the rest of the ingredients. Heat a heavy skillet or cast iron pan over medium-high heat and melt the butter, just until the foam subsides. Add the batter, forming pancakes. After a few minutes, when the top has begun to firm up slightly, flip to cook the other side. Pancakes should be crispy brown on both sides. Serve immediately, with yogurt.
  3. NOTE: These cook fast, but you can keep them warm in a 200F/90C oven.

Review
My love of cooking grew out of my love of eating and travel. Now I'm working full time with a preschooler and toddler, so it's a bit of a juggle to say the least, especially as the "picky phase" emerges (I hope it's a phase, anyway). I've lived an travelled abroad a lot but now am in the Boston area, and cooking is my way to travel these days! My sisters and I are spread out across the US but started a blog together where we post recipes and talk about food. Mostly the kind that satisfies our sweet tooth.
