whole wheat corn zucchini pancakes


How I'm spending my last day of June:

-as many hours by the pool as possible
-while finishing this book
-and eating these
-getting my nails done-did
-furiously doing laundry/packing for our vacation (!!)
-finishing up the last of these savory, cheesy, summery pancakes.

What about you?!

Whole Wheat Corn Zucchini Pancakes

yields a dozen pancakes

you'll need:
4 eggs
3 tablespoons olive oil, plus extra for frying
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried dill
1 large zucchini, grated
3 cups fresh corn kernels (about 4 ears)
1/2 cup freshly grated pecorino romano
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.

Whisk together eggs, 3 tablespoons olive oil, salt, red pepper, basil, and dill in a large bowl. Stir in the grated zucchini, corn kernels, and pecorino. Add the flour and stir until everything is well-combined.

Heat a bit of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop batter onto the skillet (I did 3 or 4 at a time). Cook 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer the cooked pancakes to a baking sheet and keep in the oven so that they stay warm until serving. Repeat with remaining batter.

Serve warm with a squeeze of lemon on top - hot sauce and/or sour cream are also delicious!
