Late summer is high zucchini season, as  CSA members may have noticed. The smaller zucchini that we place in the CSA boxes are more flavorful than larger zucchini, and perfect for this zucchini pancake recipe. The recipe calls for shredded zucchini. You can shred zucchini and freeze it as-is for use at a later date.  These pancakes include a little pumpkin spice seasoning, perfect for the coming fall days. Serve with Fair Ridge Farms maple syrup and sliced apples. These pancakes are a great way to get a serving of vegetables into your family’s breakfast. fullsizerenderdd

Zucchini Pancakes, serves about 4

1 cup plus 2 tbs milk

2 tbs melted butter

2 tbs sugar

1 tsp vanilla

2 cups shredded zucchini
