Zucchini Fritters

Zucchini cakes 2These are so quick and delicious and believe it or not they work amazing both sweet and savory versions.

I love anything quick and easy and thats what these are and something different too. Don’t be scared to try these ‘sweet’ too. Remember carrot cake, beetroot cake, ricotta cheesecakes, pumpkin pie and sweet potato cheesecakes? They are all vegetables in sweets and they work! And you get your vegetable fix.
