Contest-Winning Zucchini Pancakes Recipe

Contest-Winning Zucchini Pancakes Recipe

In place of potato pancakes, try these cute rounds that are very simple to prepare with on-hand ingredients. Not only are they tasty, they're pretty, too. To eliminate some of the fat, I use a nonstick griddle coated with butter-flavored cooking spray. —Teressa Eastman El Dorado, Kansas
