I’m sorry! It’s been a rather quiet week on the blog. The Best Dad in the world had his big birthday and there was so much to plan, cook, bake, decorate and, of course, to celebrate! So there wasn’t much time for pancakes. But now we’re back on track – and this weekend will all about pancakes!
And off we go!
When I think of pancakes I usually imagine them smothered in maple syrup or something equally sweet. But the have a savoury side as well and believe me – that side tastes amazing!
The smell of pancakes in the air, bacon’s sizzling in the pan, tomatoes and avocados can’t wait to be covered with balsamic vinegar,… enough now or I will cover my laptop with slobber.
Are you ready for a different pancake recipe? Yeah? Ok, here we go:
Zucchini Pancakes with bacon and avocado
makes about 20 pancakes
- 1 cup flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 150g zucchini, grated
- 8-10 bacon strips (the more the better 😀 )
- 250g cherry tomatoes
- 1 avocado
- 1 small red onion
- balsamic vinegar to taste
- salt and pepper
Combine flour and baking powder in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Whisk in buttermilk and egg. Add grated zucchini.
Preheat oven to 140° F. Heat up a large pan on medium heat. Lightly grease the pan. Put small spoons of batter into the pan. Flip once bubbles appear on the surface. Cook from both sides until golden. Transfer pancakes to a plate, cover with foil and keep them warm in the oven.
While cooking the pancakes, heat up a small pan and fry the bacon until crisp. Tear into small pieces. Remove avocado from its peel and cut in small pieces. Quarter tomatoes. Peel onion, halve and slice thinly. Combine vegetables in a small bowl and add vinegar, salt and pepper.
Serve pancakes topped with salad and bacon.
Trust me and just try this recipe! You’re gonna love it!! My avocado intake reaches critical levels at the moment but – who cares? I don’t mind ending up all green.
Did you try savory pancakes before? Maybe you have some “must-try” recipes for me 🙂
See you again tomorrow and until then, have a HAPPY #PANCAKEAPRIL!
