Zucchini Corn Pancakes

Vegetables have always been a favorite and as you can tell I love my "little" cakes. This Recipe caught my eye and knew I would like it.

As usual I adapted the recipe. The recipe calls for flour which I did not use. Love  Panko spicy bread crumbs and they were excellent in this recipe. I also used fresh oregano and omitted the basil.

4 large eggs, beaten ( I used 3 eggs)
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tsp. salt*( didn't use salt or pepper, see note below)
1/2 tsp. ground pepper*
1 tsp. dried basil( didn't use)
1 tsp. dried oregano( used fresh)
3 cups grated zucchini 
1 cup fresh sweet corn off the cob or frozen ( used 1 can of corn, drained)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese ( or your favorite cheese)
1 3/4 cups unbleached all purpose flour( used 4C Spicy Panko)

Directions to the original recipe is above in the link which is marked RECIPES. 

 * I didn't use the salt and pepper because the 4C has plenty in it and I don't like adding additional salt.

In large bowl I added the two eggs and mixed well. 

Added the washed and peeled zucchini to the Cuisinart and grated to the consistency I wanted. 

Removed the zucchini from the Cuisinart bowl and added the zucchini, drained corn, oregano  and cheese to the egg mixture and once combined I added the breadcrumbs. Once breadcrumbs were added I also like to add a shake or two of Slap ya Mama.

Formed into patties and fried in the olive oil and I added a touch of butter to the oil.

Very good recipe and will make again.


  1. Gm Everyone,

    Linda those little cakes look wonderful. I too enjoy these tasty sides or appys. Yours always look so crispy and perfect. Nice and browned. Love this combo. Had some really sweet local corn last week. It's a perfect on for this recipe. Thanks a bunch for sharing it.


  2. These sound delicious. I'll have to look for the spicy Panko dread crumbs.

  3. Now that's my kind of food. I see the word zucchini and I've gotta peek.

    Is there a dance like a rain dance you can do to make zucchini grow in the garden? Cause if there is, I have to take lessons. I was overrun with it last year-this year ain't lookin' so good. Doggone crazy weather.

    Copying this one to have on hand when I do get some......it has everything we like in them. A nice change for a side dish too.

    Thank you Linda!
