Preview: Savory Yellow Squash Patties are miniature pancakes, patties, or cakes made with cooked yellow squash. Enjoyed by kids and adults alike. Serve with Ranch.
“This is the only way I can get my husband to eat squash.” My friend added that note to the recipe when she gave it to me.
If you have somebody in your family who thinks he or she doesn’t like squash, be sure you try these yellow Squash Patties. Serve with ranch dressing, catsup, or something like this Cajun Dip.
What happened to “self-rising flour?”
The original recipe I received from my friend called for self-rising flour. I couldn’t find a single bag of the stuff at the big Walmart near our house today.
Must be time to rewrite the recipe — without self-rising flour.
According to the King Arthur website, adding 1.5 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt to 1 cup of all-purpose flour makes a good substitute for self-rising flour.
After testing the new recipe several times, I made several changes. If you’ve made this before, you might notice I substituted 1/4 cup of yellow cornmeal for the same amount of flour.
So now the recipe calls for half flour and half cornmeal. The final product is more substantial and tastes better, too.
What condiments are best with Squash Patties?
Kids who prefer to eat with their hands will probably like these, too. If they want to dip everything into ranch dressing, you’re golden. However, our condiment of choice is catsup. or Mayochup. Remoulade sauce or Cajun dip would also be delicious.
