Zucchini-Cheese Pancakes / Savoury Pancake Recipe

Pancakes are always quick-fix for morning breakfast and kids preferred to have them. Even I prefer pancakes once a week in my breakfast or brunch. But the better-half doesn't like it so we avoid it on a weekly basis and include this once in a month or sometimes when he is on tour. Normally we are used to with the sweet pancakes however today I am sharing a recipe of savoury pancake.


People who do not prefer to eat too much sweet and avoid eating pancakes for this reason now they can try this savoury pancake recipe. Since I entered into this virtual world I have started experimenting more on varieties of food items. I picked up Zucchini as I read it  is a very good source of protein, vitamin and minerals. So I decided to include in our diet and thought of including in pancakes and while searching I landed to this page. Zucchini Cheese pancake is a very good breakfast, brunch or snack option for kids as well as adults. I loved the taste of this savoury pancake. Next time I will try some other recipe with zucchini. I added cheese here to make it more kid's friendly but you can avoid it.
