Zucchini Cakes

Just stopping by quickly with my dinner from last night.  I haven’t made a recipe in a while – I’ve been having oatmeal for breakfast, salad with tuna for lunch, and eggs for dinner for like a week.  It was all I was in the mood for! But last night, I made some zucchini cakes, and they were awesome!

Here’s what I did!

Zucchini Cakes


  • 1 large zucchini
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • Salt, pepper, seasoning
  • Sprinkle of parmesan cheese


1. Shred the zucchini


2. Remove excess liquid from zucchini by squeezing them out in paper towels.  Warning: there will be a lot of liquid!

3. Mix all of the ingredients together

4. Heat a sprayed pan on medium, and form mixture into smaller cakes.


5. Cook the cakes for about a minute and a half on each side until golden brown!

These cakes were really tasty, especially with the Greek seasoning I used! The recipe made 6 cakes, which will last me all weekend! YAY! Single living girl loves leftovers.


As you can tell, I paired the cakes with some edamame and apple sauce and a dollop of ketchup.  Hit the spot for me!

What’s your favorite way to eat zucchini? I think this is mine!
