Irresistible pumpkin flower pancakes, perfect for aperitifs and dinners in spring and autumn. Crispy and mouthwatering, with a soft heart.
Pumpkin flower pancakes make a great dish. The more you eat, the more you want some more! Try it, and see.
Originally this pancake-type foodstuff was a typical dish associated with Calabria and Campania… two regions of southern Italy where
they are still known today by their names in local dialect: ciurilli or sciurilli.
Wonderful as an aperitif or for convivial summer suppers… and children just love them.
They can be made with pumpkin or zucchini flowers. Ideally, these pancakes should be made during the fresh flower seasons, i.e. in
spring or autumn. It’s really easy to make and serve these crunchy and highly flavored pancakes.
The recipe is quick and simple.
