|Far more than the sum of their parts, these baked zucchini pecan pancakes are easy to make and taste great at any temperature, making them ideal for picnics and potlucks.|
|Directions||Oil the baking dish and preheat the oven to 350.
Grate zucchini, place in colander, and toss with salt. Let sit for 20 minutes, then squeeze out excess liquid with a wooden spoon or your hands. Transfer to bowl.
Add remaining ingredients and mix well, until it forms a sticky glob with no loose powder. You may to squeeze the mixture with bare hands to achieve this.
Spread and press evenly into baking dish (it should be less than an inch thick) and drizzle with a little more oil.
Bake 20-40 minutes (depending on thickness), until brown and slightly crispy. Let cool slightly before cutting into pieces.
Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature.
|Notes||Zucchini pecan pancakes are good plain or with a thick dipping sauce like aïoli or tahini sauce.
