In Season Now … Zucchini And Sweet Corn Pancakes

Weekend!  Sounds good, right? I love Saturday mornings especially lazy ones. I get to relax and take my time, unless of course I have some early commitment I needed to go to. Brunch is always a Saturday treat. Any morning any day of the week , breakfast for each family member would be “make-your-own”. But not Saturday. A family favourite of course is the bacon and egg combo. Every now and then, French cinnamon toast would be on the table. Plain or blueberry pancakes is another favourite. Then I was introduce to savoury pancakes by a good friend and have been loving these zucchini and sweet corn pancakes since.

I actually should call this zucchini, sweet corn and butternut pumpkin pancakes because I  add a cup of mashed butternut to this recipe. Sweet and savoury, these delicious pancakes are great served with fresh avocado slices, tomatoes, mixed leaf salad and a dollop of sour cream.  Have these for brunch or light snack and seriously, these can be served with grilled chicken breasts for a delightful main meal.

  1. Whisk together the corn, zucchini, pumpkin, eggs and milk. Gradually stir in the sifted flour and cumin, salt and pepper.

  1. We made these tonight and they were wonderful! Instead of sour cream, we served them with Thai Sweet Chili Sauce. Yummy! Thanks for a very nice recipe.
