Air Fryer Zucchini Ricotta Cakes

My Insane Air Fried Zucchini and Ricotta cakes/fritters. In the previous video I showed you my mom’s take on this delicious side and I had to lighten it up and put my spin on it. To be honest, I like this version a lot more than the breaded and fried one but it’s totally up to personal taste. You will need:

Air-Fryer Zucchini Ricotta Cakes

Course Appetizer, Side Dish


  • 1 ¼ cup ricotta – 250 grams
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup pecorino romano or parmigiano reggiano 100 grams
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 grated medium zucchinis 200 grams
  • 1 cup Italian breadcrumbs 100 grams or any
  • ¼ cup fresh dill optional


  • In a bowl, add your ricotta and egg and give it a mix. Continue to add the rest of your ingredients and mix well. I got tired of using the spatula or a fork so I use my clean hands to incorporate everything really well.
  • Take a spoon and scoop your mixture so that you have even patties. Roll each one into a ball and flatten them.
  • Once they are all shaped, you can spray them on each side with some cooking spray an air fry them at 400°F for 10 minutes.


Please note: You can use any cheese of choice, if you don’t like a dill feel free to leave it out but in my opinion it’s so much better with it. You can absolutely bake them in the oven just keep an eye on them.
