Zucchini Flower pancakes

Zucchini 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

One egg

3/4 cup milk

2 rounded teaspoons baking powder

Melt butter

Saute onion till soft

Set aside

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.
