Zucchini cakes – revisit

zucchini, patties, cheese, finger food, kid, toddler, food for tots

As mentioned in my early post, when I first made zucchini cakes, I didn’t have a large zucchini so it didn’t turn out close to the original recipe I followed. This round, with a large zucchini on hand and adding 1 extra egg, I made a revisit to this recipe. For recipe, please refer to here.

If you have a picky eater who refuses to eat vegetables, give it a try. But remember to control the amount of salt you add as the cheese is quite salty.

When I am writing this post, I wonder whether Japanese cucumber can be used to replace zucchini. Has anyone tried it before and like to share it with me?

Which one do you like, the 1st attempt or the one below?

    The question is, which one did YOU like better?

  2. Olga says:

    those look great! I like mine with sourcream and salsa.

  3. The Peanut Butter Boy says:

    These look wonderful, I’ve never made zucchini cakes but always wanted to, I think these look superior. I want some!

  4. Erika says:

    These look great, thanks for sharing. As for Japanese cukes, they’re wetter/juicier than “zukes,” so you might have to squeeze out the liquid after grating.

  5. Dora says:

    Interesting cakes. Have not tried before. I’ll “grab” some for my tea break. ;p

    I’ve never cooked with zucchini before. And I don’t really like it when they serve cubes of it with western food. I would just eat the side carrots, peppers and broccoli and leave the zucchini untouched.

  12. Food For Tots says:

    Hi mansi,
    Tks for your compliments and kind invitation. I had submitted 2 recipes to your email.

    Hi tigerfish,
    Will you give mine a try? It is cruncy and full of cheesy taste. 😉

    These zucchini cakes look delicious. Yum! We have some many in the fall! Will definitely be making these when we have more zucchinis than we know what to do with.

    Hungry Gal: Tks for dropping by. Zucchini is not easily available in the local market. You are so lucky!
