Looking for a delicious, warm lunch or dinner treat? Here’s a great way to transform the humble zucchini into a delicious, crispy, fiendishly addictive fried pancake. We think you’ll love it!


  • 3 large zucchinis
  • 2/3 cup of plain flour.
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 large spring onion, bulb and shoots sliced
  • 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate soda
  • Vegetable oil
  • Sweet corn (optional, to taste)
  • Dill or fennel (optional, to taste)
  • Sour cream or yogurt (optional, to taste)
  • Salt (optional, to taste)


  • Grate the zucchinis (or shred them in a food mixer) and place them in a bowl. Add salt and set aside.
  • Beat the eggs in another large bowl.
  • Return to your shredded zucchinis. Squeeze them to remove any excess moisture, then add into the bowl with the eggs.
  • Add flour, bicarb soda, chopped spring onion, corn and herbs (if desired) and mix.
  • Fry in a pan (medium heat) until both sides are golden brown
  • Serve with a dollop of sour cream or yogurt melting over the top for an extra delicious touch!

  1. l used to love…typo…..l STILL love “bubble and squeak”. (mashed spuds, leftover veges, one egg, anything else you feel like adding….shallow fry in pan, turning once….then “bo in”. My FAVOURITE deep fried vege., would be CHIPS. (Unfortunately, l can’t indulge much, because my smoke alarm goes off, when l deep fry ANYTHING! and it’s the type, where the battery is irremovable). :'(. l guess that means smoke alarms save your life on two fronts…fire and fat! 😛
