  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ – ¾ cup of milk



1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. In a large bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pepper.

3. Add the butter and cut into flour mixture to form a coarse, crumbly mix. Set aside.

4. Place zucchini in a colander and squeeze the extra juices from it.

5. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the zucchini,cheddar cheese, and milk.

8. Bake for 13-15 minutes until golden and puffed up. Serve warm!
