  1. These were great. My kids won't eat the other zucchini pancakes I make, but they loved these. Now if I can just get my husband to eat them... Thanks for sharing!
  2. I have prepared zucchini pancakes before but never like this. The Parmesan cheese and mayonnaise added a ncie flavor and moistness. the cayenne gave it a nice spicy flavor. Prpeared as written. Thanks KITTENCAL. Bullwinkle.
  3. Yummy, and so easy to make! I followed Ms. Alice's suggestion and included some freshly processed breadcrumbs, I omitted the cayenne pepper, I used low-fat mayonnaise and I added 4 cloves of minced garlic, but otherwise I followed the recipe. I needed only about half the specified amount of butter and oil as I sautéed my pancakes in a non-stick pan. I served them with a generous dollop of creamy Greek yoghurt. Everyone just loved them so I'll be making these again! Thank you KITTENCAL for yet another fabulous recipe!
  4. Great side dish for our spicy chicken pesto. Served with pesto pasta salad.
  5. YUMMY! Just made these as a side and they were great! I used the Slap Your Mama seasoning as another reviewer suggested but would probably up it to a full teaspoon next time and there will absolutely be a next time. Thanks for this one :)


  1. One of the better zucchini pancake recipes I have tried, I substituted some of the flour with breadcrumbs to make them more crispy. Loved the addition of parmesan cheese. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
