Zucchini Flower pancakes
This is another recipe from my Mom.
My Dad had a huge garden and he used everything.
When we saw the orange zucchini flower bloom we were so excited.
We would carefully pick them, my Mom would gently wash them and leave them on a towel to dry.
She never measured anything so I had to figure the recipe out .
10 to 12 zucchini blossoms cut into 1/4 inch slices
One large diced onion
3 tablespoons butter
3/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup milk
2 rounded teaspoons baking powder
Saute onion till soft
In a bowl, mix the egg with the milk
Add the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper
Add the flowers and onion with all the butter
This should be the consistency of pancake batter
If it is too loose add more flour
If it is too thick, add more milk
Melt another tablespoon of butter in a non stick pan or griddle
Just like regular pancakes, heat the griddle to medium high.
Drop a heaping tablespoon of batter on the griddle and wait for the bubbles to pop
Then turn over for a minute, just to cook the other side.
Season with some kosher salt.
These are great plain or dip them in sour cream or any other dipping sauce you like.
