    I liked these, but the family thought they were, and I quote, 'weird', lol. I served these drizzled with honey and topped with whipped cream. I don't know if I could eat these as a dessert or something that I would make all the time, but they were fun to try and tasty. Thanks for sharing.  -  02 Apr 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Okay, I did not want sweet pancakes, I wanted savory....so I substituted equal parts garlic and onion powder instead of sugar. They were fantastic!  -  11 Aug 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    First of all, the kids definitely knew this was zucchini, and so did I. This tasted like semi-raw, sweet zucchini. There is not enough flour to make them a pancake consistency or even like a fritter. Also, I had to turn the heat down and cook for a longer time. They were burning on the higher heat suggested and weren't getting done at all in the middle. I was able to eat them, and I'll eat the leftovers for breakfast tomorrow, but I won't be making these again.  -  06 Aug 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
