Tiger Lilies that is! Or at least that is what we called them growing up. Euell Gibbons calls them day lilies.

Common name: YUMMY! Really, everyone tasted this recipe and liked it. Woa.

Step one: go pick pretty flowers

Step two: rinse them off gently

Step three: dip and fry

I used Gordon Food Service pancake mix because it is so sweet that I am sure it is really a vanilla cake mix that was put in the wrong packaging.

That is what inspired the rest of my ingredients and recipe.

I decided to turn the old-fashioned fried zucchini blossom recipe into a pretty dessert.

I also decided to sneak this delicious snack onto the brunch table for my mother’s adult foster care residents. I was sure that they had all eaten zucchini blossoms “back in the day”, but just in case I left it at assuming and just served it as treat. My covert operation “feed them weeds” was a resounding success! Mom wasn’t too upset with me, and “my guy’s” AKA guinea pigs, thought they were getting dessert before lunch!
