Recipe for Week of April 26,2010 – Zucchini Pancake

Posted on 27. Apr, 2010 in Food

Zucchini Pancake

A long-standing family favorite that even toddlers enjoy. The recipe makes one, thick, 8-inch pancake, or you can make smaller ones.

• 1 cup (or more) shredded zucchini

• 1 whole egg

• 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

• dash of salt

• 1 tablespoon sunflower or sesame seeds (for children over four)

• fruit spread or mild salsa for topping

Stir ingredients together without over-beating. Bake on a preheated griddle. Before flipping, sprinkle on sunflower or sesame seeds, if desired. Serve with fruit spread or salsa. Serves 2.

If you don’t have time for these, buy Dr. Prager’s Broccoli, Spinach or Sweet Potato pancakes which are also huge hits!! No syrup for these!

Weekly Tips for April 26, 2010

Turn them into pillows!  This is easy and a way to keep those vintage tees around.  Another great idea, take you child’s baby bumper and baby sheets, turn them into pillows for their bed.  This was done for a little boy’s surfer nursery and surfer bedroom. What a way to use that expensive bedding more than once! (more…)
