Kitchen Adventures: Squash Pancake

Checking the ref yesterday for possible dish to cook, I saw the squash that has been there for almost two weeks. It was intended for okoy last Tuesday but I did not have too much time to prepare and some of the ingredients are not available that time.

Thinking of what to do with this veggie, I resulted to Squash Pancake. My son loves this one too.

You will need:
1 cup squash, boiled and mashed
1 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon powder
2 tbsp. sugar
1 egg
Cooking oil for frying

All you need to do is to mix all the ingredients to create batter. Heat pan with few amounts of oil. Put about 2 tablespoons of the batter in the pan and flatten it to about half inch thick. Cook each side for about two to three minutes. Serve it plain or with garlic-mayo dip.

This recipe can be used by moms to trick their kids having hard time to eat veggies.
