"I thought the flavor was delicious, but I ran into trouble with the texture. They were very soggy for me. I think I didn't squeeze out all of the moisture I could have. I'll try again next time I have zucchini and take extra care to thoroughly dry."

"I didn't think the pancakes themselves had a lot of flavor but with the marinara dipping sauce served with it, that helped. I think more garlic and some crushed red pepper would really help kick things up a notch."

"I didn't think they had a lot of flavor. I put a dollop of apple butter on top to jazz them up."

"These were delicious! I added some shredded carrots with the zucchini and used diced shallots instead of sweet onions."
