A quick mention, my other favorite way to serve these is as Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms! The beautiful yellow flowers are stuffed with a ricotta mixture, lightly battered and fried. They are heavenly!
As for this Zucchini Blossom Pancake, this is all about my Grandmother. She is the one that makes these every year with the flowers from her garden and we all just love them. So you can imagine why I enjoy them so much and continue to make them as the blossoms become available. For this recipe, I had just enough to make one large pancake but you can easily multiply the recipe. You can generally find these in specialty stores or farmers markets so be on the lookout!
Before I get to the recipe I need to ask… who else is in LOVE with these gorgeous

This looks fantastic, Angela! So fresh and vibrant perfect for summer gatherings!
Thank you so much! We love them!
Love this! I’m waiting VERY IMPATIENTLY for my zucchini plants to grow so I can start w/ my flower recipes! I even went to a farmer’s market yesterday in search of them. I’ve never made them quite this way, so I’m going to try it.
I’m with you! I feel like I should have planted more plants because I usually only get 3-5 at a time lol. Our local specialty markets I think start carrying them in July
I love when posts are about handed down recipes – good thing to keep the tradition going and passing along to your kids.
Thanks so much Patty! You’re right it’s the best being able to pass it al on from one generation to the next
What a creative idea. Looks great.
Thank you Peter!

I’ve always wanted to try “courgette flowers” (as we call them in the UK) but so hard to get hold of here. This looks like a delicate tasty dish!
Oh they are wonderful. I hope you are able to find them.
Looks delicious! I love zucchini and it looks so healthy too! I’ll pin it for later.
Thank you! Enjoy!!
