zucchini and feta pancakes…

I made these last year from a moosewood cookbook….and that went back to the library and did I write down the recipe, oh nooooooooo! So I winged it and we had sucess as I remembered it was 4 zucchini’s and 4 eggs. So here goes:

zucchini and feta pancakes

4 zucchini’s grated
4 eggs separated
100g feta crumbled (I love danish feta all chopped up)
1/2 cup flour
1-2Tbsp finely diced red onion
salt and pepper to season
butter to fry pancakes in
lemon and mint to serve

– Whisk egg whites until soft peaks form and gently fold into mixture of grated zucchini’s, feta, egg yolks, flour, red onion and then season.
– In a frypan melt a Tbsp of butter and drop in mixture ( I use a heaped tablespoon) and fry in batches. Turn over after a few minutes and cook on other side. Keep adding a bit more butter when necessary to your pan as you are frying them up.
– Serve with mint leaves and lemon juice. I think natural yoghurt would also be lovely. Be warned that these will go quickly!


  1. oh my goodness they sound soooo good! I’m absolutely in love with feta too

  2. They look really yummy. Something warm right now would be great… Lou.

  3. They look delicious, I must try them!

  4. Yummo!! They might be just perfect for tea tonight :)

  5. I’m loving the foodie angle your blog is taking on Corrie…. Lots of Ohhh I must try that coming from my place!

  6. Thanks Tammy, that is because there is a lot more cooking than craft going on right now!


  7. Oh yummo, children love zucchinis too, i am a big feta fan!! Love Posie

  8. These sound so good! I love zucchini and I reckon with the fetta in it I can con the kids to eat it too lol!

  9. Licking my lips looking at those!

    You are going gangbusters in the kitchen at the moment! if I only I could get my act together with my sewing machine! šŸ˜›

  10. Sorry that I have to mention this but there is no such thing as Danish feta cheese! Since 2005 feta is a protected designation of origin product of Greece. Try to find in your grocery shop Greek feta! The flavor is intense and you will immediately spot the difference!
    Cheers from Greece! :)
    Love your blog!

  11. Oh I love Danish Feta, I buy it all the time, it has more moisture than greek feta, so it makes it less sour. It crumbles beautifully, the pancakes look so good Corrie, Britt x

  12. I love Danish feta, too; I find the other is too strong.

  13. Thanks for the link Corrie and the recipie!! šŸ˜‰

  14. Yum, must try :)

  15. yummo! I’ll be giving these a try too. We have two feta options in Australia – Danish and Greek. The Danish feta is more creamy and the greek more crumbly. Bubbles – perhaps the ban is upheld in the EU member states only?

  16. No, actually it is worldwide! Nevertheless, I only mentioned it because feta from Greece (and not made like greek) has more flavor, cause of the use of goat and ship milk. As we say in my village “it all depends on what you savor the most”!

  17. Just made these for tea, my 18 month old loved them and we got to use some lemons from our tree – yummo!
