  1. In a medium bowl mix zucchini with 1 tablespoon salt and let stand for 30 minutes. (don’t skip this step or cakes will be watery!)
  2. In a colander, rinse zucchini well with water, then squeeze dry with tea towel.
  3. In a large bowl, mix zucchini with eggs, onion, bread crumbs, parmesan and cayenne. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat a large heavy skillet on medium high, add butter and oil in equal parts as necessary.
  5. Form into patties (I do this as I drop it into the pan- works fine).
  6. Sautѐ a few patties at a time until golden brown – about 3 minutes per side.
