Total Time30 mins
- 2 eggs beaten
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp ground pepper
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 2 cups grated zucchini about 2 large zucchini
- 1 cup fresh sweet corn
- 1/2 cup yellow onion; chopped
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese or your favorite cheese
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour I used whole-wheat flour
- Chopped green onions for a garnish
- Sour cream and/or salsa optional
In a large bowl, combine eggs, oil, salt, pepper, dried herbs, and baking powder. Whisk until combined.
Add the zucchini (see note below), corn, onions, and cheddar cheese and stir with a spatula to the egg mixture. Add the flour and stir until thoroughly combined.
Heat a large skillet or griddle to medium-high heat, adding a very small amount of oil to the skillet/griddle. Using an ice cream scoop or 2 spoons, scoop about 1/4-cupfuls of batter onto the skillet and flatten, like you would if you were making pancakes…its the same process! With the back of the scoop into a circle about 4 inches in diameter. Cook on each side about 3-4 minutes, or until a deep golden brown. Remove from skillet and transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining batter.Top with green onions and your favorite toppings! Salsa, sour cream, jalapenos, fresh squeezed limes are excellent as toppings as well!
*Make sure to squeeze out as much moisture as you can out of the zucchinis. You can do this with your hands or in a paper towel or cheese cloth.
**If you use canned corn, make sure to drain as much water as you can before adding it into the bowl.
