on saturday morning i woke up (still pregnant and not in labor. not even close. the Buca did not work! dang it!) and checked my email while deciding what to make for breakfast. awesomely enough, i had received an email from one of my favorite recipe blogs, smitten kitchen, with a recipe for zucchini bread pancakes. even more awesome, we had just gotten a bunch of yummy looking zucchini in our CSA box last week! (for the locals, we get our CSA from East Henderson Farm, which is run by one of the coolest and nicest couples you will ever meet, half of which has been one of my best friends since kindergarten). so, i put on some cartoons for mimi and got to work in the kitchen. these pancakes turned out super yummy and were super easy. seriously, the hardest part was grating the zucchini! i highly recommend making them. i followed the recipe pretty much to a T (we didn't have buttermilk, so i used the milk/yogurt option). bon appetit!
grate the zucchini
mix together all the dry ingredients and stir that mixture into the zucchini mix
place 1/4 cup portions into a cast iron skillet, with melted butter, over medium heat
once you see bubbles, flip the cakes and cook the other side (each side takes about two to three minutes)
place cooked cakes in a preheated, 200 degree oven. this helps to keep them warm as well as cook any centers that haven't quite finished cooking through!
serve with butter and syrup and enjoy!
this girl sure did...
what do you think? would you eat zucchini bread pancakes??? i will definitely be making them again!
i hope you all have a great day!
