Over at Rachel Cooks they have an impressive variety of sweet and savory pancake recipes! I coudnt resist posting this one - its on my to try list now!

Summer Squash Pancakes:
8 ounces shredded summer squash (zucchini & yellow squash)
1 tablespoon finely chopped shallots
1 large egg – beaten
3-4 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Vegetable oil
Using a food processor shred your squash. Add squash to a large bowl and add shallots, egg, flour baking powder and spices.
Heat vegetable oil over medium heat and drop batter into oil (about tablespoons) and fry until crispy on both sides.
Top with goat cheese dressing and serve with salad and hot capicola.
Makes about 10 small pancakes.
*Note: If you notice the batter start to get runny just add a little more flour. The longer the batter sits the more water the squash will give off.
