Yummy! My husband loved these.The only thing I would do different when making these again is to add garlic. I did fry in olive oil instead of the oil/butter mix.
Good, but I had problems with the patties breaking up. I added 2 more egg whites and chilled for twenty minutes before frying.
I had never tasted or made zucchini cakes before. EVER. I used this recipe as a jumping off start. I made some changes according to my family's likes while keeping the balance of the original recipe in mind. I'm sure it would have been good just as it is however if you like a little more zing, this recipe is easy to customize. Enjoy!--
BTW,I doubled the original recipe then added another 2 eggs, another cup of bread crumbs, 1 ear of fresh corn blanched and cut off the cob, three chopped green onions, a tsp more of old bay, 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper, the juice of half a lemon and a 1/2 tsp of salt. I came out with 12 patties a little smaller then an english muffin. I browned in a little bit of bacon drippings from breakfast and a pat of butter. I served with a big wedge salad for a hot summer day supper. I had lemon wedges, Tabasco, cocktail sauce ketchup and salt/pepper on the table. My family devoured!!
Made these today and they're ok, not as great as the previous reviews. I'll keep looking for other versions of this.
I took the suggestion and used Greek plain yogurt instead of mayo. The chef was not exaggerating when she said these cakes will fool crab cake lovers. I lived in Maryland crab cake country and these are just as tasty. To get as much liquid out of the zucchini, I used a clean kitchen towel. Cooked the cakes in a cast iron skillet with coconut oil and served them with a lemon wedge. Yummmmm!!!
