Zucchini Pancakes with a Peach White Chocolate Topping

2 cups shredded zucchini
2 cups pancake mix
1 cup water
1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 squares white chocolate
1/2 cup peach preserves or
(mashed peaches if you want to reduce sugar)
2 Tablespoons water

2 Tablespoon butter

In hot griddle spread 1 tablespoon butter. Pour batter onto griddle for each pancake. Cook over medium heat about 2 minutes on each side or till pancakes are golden brown, turning to second sides when pancakes have bubbly surfaces and edges are slightly dry. Remove pancakes. Spread last tablespoon of butter on griddle and cook remaining pancakes.

In small microwavable bowl melt white chocolate squares stirring at 20 second intervals. Stir in peach preserves or mashed peaches and 2 tablespoons water; set aside.

To serve, stack pancakes on individual plates and drizzle with white chocolate syrup. Serve immediately. *Optional- for added flavor or texture add some nuts and or chopped peaches into the batter or on top of the pancakes.

Yield: 15 pancakes (~4 inch pancakes)

Are all these recipes your own creations? I am wondering if you have a rating system for your recipes- are these all your absolute favorites? your latest? something fun to try? a way to use your healthy ingredients in a new way? I kind of want to know what I am getting into before I embark.
