This recipe originally came from russia but this is my grandma's version. A tip is that it depends on how you grate the zucchini, If you like more of a richer taste grate the zucchini into larger pieces if you like more of a plain pancake taste make smaller pieces. For extra flavor add sour cream.


  1. Take all of the zucchini and peel it with a potato peeler, etc.
  2. Then grate them into little or big pieces your choice.
  3. Next you have to squeeze all the juice from them using a drainer, a bowl, and your hands.
  4. How you do it: first put all the grated zucchini in the drainer, then put it on top of your bowl, then the fun part you have to press down the zucchini with a plate, your hands, whatever is comfortable. Let the zucchini sit there for about 15 min it will release even more juice.
  5. Once your done with that mix the flour, baking soda, salt/pepper, zucchini, and egg together.
  6. You should get sort of a liquid paste.
  7. Great! Now all you have to do is fry them on a pan. Take a pan and put in veggie oil not to much though.
  8. Pour in every pancake with a table spoon flip each side 1-2 minute.
  9. They are done when golden brown.
  10. Now all you have to do is top it off with some yummy sour cream!
