This recipe is for all the zucchini lovers out there,

or better yet…

maybe this recipe is great for people who have zucchini overflowing their gardens and have made all the zucchini bread they can handle.

This recipe is perfect for the person who doesn’t even like zucchini. Really, I have one of those in my house and this was a huge hit for them. I think I jumped up and down in the kitchen for a full minute. YEAH!!! I finally convinced another one to move over to the ZUCCHINI side!

how to make zucchini cakes

Grate up the zucchini and place it in cheese cloth and twist or a fine strainer and press down with the back of a large spoon to remove excess liquid. Get as much out as you can for crispier zucchini cakes.

In a medium bowl add zucchini, flour, baking powder, onion, cheese and salt and pepper.

The batter should be slightly thick, it will spread as it’s heated.

Once the edges firm up they are ready to flip over and cook on the other side.

Zucchini Cakes
  • 4 small-medium (zucchini) about 3-4 cups
  • ¾ cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup onion (diced)
  • ½ cup grated Romano Cheese (or Parmesan)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
  1. Grate zucchini, then squeeze out excess liquid from zucchini either in cheese cloth or strainer. Until no liquid comes out of zucchini.
  2. In medium bowl mix zucchini, flour, baking powder, onion, cheese and salt and pepper.
  3. The batter should be thick. If you didn't get enough liquid out of zucchini you may need a couple more tablespoons flour, add that accordingly.
  4. Heat skillet to medium, to medium-high and place 2 tablespoons of batter on greased heated skillet and cook like you do pancakes. Until edges are firm, then flip them over and cook on other side until they are firm and fully cooked. About 2 minutes per side.
  5. Serve with sour cream, greek yogurt, syrup, jam, or applesauce.

I topped my zucchini cakes with Plain Greek Yogurt, they are very tasty with sour cream, jam, apple sauce or syrup.

    These look amazing! So happy to find this recipe since I shredded and froze about a zillion small, tender zucchini from our garden. I see these cakes in my future.
