When it comes to cooking, I am more of a "creator". Not much for following recipes. Which, I confess, has had its ups and downs. One creation that turned out pretty well, if I do say so myself, are what I call Fried Zucchini Cake. I am a big fan of Zucchini. Very tasty, versatile, and is so cheap too! All throughout the winter I have bought zucchini at the market, 3 for $1.00. Can't beat that!
I am sure something similar to these have been made before, this is just my take on it. Because I winged it when making these, I don't have the exact amounts. It's pretty fool proof though. Here it is!
Fried Zucchini Cakes
1 Zucchini, shredded
1 c grated cheese
2 tbls milk
3/4c flour (or enough to make a pancake like batter)
Seasoning: Salt, pepper, garlic salt, onion powder
Stir all ingredients (except oil) together. Add milk/flour until consistency is right. The batter should be equal amounts batter/zucchini.
Heat up enough oil to cover the bottom of your fry pan. Drop a spoonful of batter, and flatten slightly. Fry each side until golden brown. Add more oil as you go, if needed. Best when eaten right away!
*From my experience the first batch tends to fail. I think the oil just wasn't hot enough.
If you are like me, you have a plethora of zucchini in your fridge. That is why next I will post my absolutely yummy Zucchini Bread Recipe.
