Baked Zucchini Ricotta Cakes

Mom’s best ricotta and zucchini cakes (or fritters) this has always been one of my favourite recipes that she makes. They are so light and fluffy and they taste like heaven. I will be sharing a version that is my take on them using the air fryer so please stay tuned for that. You will need:

Ingredients
  

Filling

  • 1 1/4 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
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill optional

Breading

  • 1-2 whisked eggs
  • additional breadcrumbs
  • avocado oil or any for frying

Instructions
 

  • 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, we can lightly bread them.
  • Dip each patty into your whisked eggs, and lightly coat it in some additional bread crumbs. Heat up your oil in a skillet very well and fry them for 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden.
  • My heat was on medium-high. Your parties must sizzle when you add them in the pan so please don’t place them in cold oil.
  • Enjoy, and don’t forget to follow me for more

Notes

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. Please feel free to use almond flour or any gluten-free breadcrumbs.
