Grate the zucchini and place on a kitchen towel, paper towel or cheese cloth and squeeze the zucchini juice out. I didn’t have a clean kitchen towel so I used like 4 layers of paper towels. I was too enthusiastic in my first attempt, treating the paper towels like real towels and I ripped right through them. Word to the wise, be gentle if you are going to use paper towels.

Place the zucchini, egg, flour, baking powder, sugar, and milk in a bowl. Mix well until all ingredients are getting along and there is no segregation in sight. Let it sit for about 15 minutes. I wanted the flour to get wet. I don’t know if that’s a real thing, but I did it.


Place enough oil in a frying pan to cover the bottom completely. Heat on medium heat scoop little puddles of the batter into the oil. Cook for a few minutes on one side and check the bottom. If it is a gorgeous golden brown, flip them over and repeat the process. If they are black, don’t cook the other side and call them half cajun.


After both sides are sufficiently gorgeous remove onto paper towels. Place on a serving platter.

Serve with the best carrot maple jam. Click Here for recipe, but the picture below  is pretty self explanatory.
