Zucchini Pancake Recipe

I know that almost everyone has had potato pancakes but did you ever try zucchini pancakes? When I was a child I was a very picky eater and there was very little things that I would eat; my favorite was potato pancakes. I just loved them so much I could eat them every day, so one day I came home from school and my mother had potato pancakes or so I thought. I sat down to dinner and began eating my favorite food but something seemed a little strange. I said to my mother, "these pancakes taste different" and she said "I used a different kind of potato this time" and so I was satisfied with her explanation and kept on eating my fill as usual. When dinner was over she asked me how I liked dinner and I said it was wonderful as usual, then she replied these were a new zucchini pancake recipe that she just got from a neighbor and decided to try it on me. I was never so surprised in my life and since then I have been making the same zucchini pancake recipe and now I am passing it on to you.

1-3 pound zucchini
½ to ¾ cup flour
1 large egg
½ tsp. Salt
Pinch of pepper or as you like it
Some graded onion (optional)

Wash and peal the skin from the zucchini, slice it down the center, remove the seeds from the center and shred the zucchini into a large bowl and add one egg, salt, pepper, and flour. Mix all the ingredients together.

In a large skillet place about a ¼ inch of oil or even a little less (as you prefer) on your range until hot enough to fry in, place the pancake batter in the frying pan a couple of spoons at a time until you reach the desired size of each zucchini pancake, let fry until a golden brown on each side is reached and the pancake is crispy around the edges, remove the pancakes from the pan and place them on some paper towels to drain the oil from them and then enjoy.

This zucchini pancake recipe will probably be the best you ever had.
