  1. In a large bowl, stir together the zucchini, shallot, eggs, flour, Parmesan, thyme, baking powder, and pepper until well combined.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium heat, swirling to coat the skillet. Place eight 1/8-cup mounds of the zucchini mixture in the skillet. Using the back of the measuring cup or a spoon, gently press down on the mounds, spreading them to make pancakes about 1/2-inch thick and 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown all over. Transfer the pancakes to a plate. Cover to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and zucchini mixture.
  3. Let the pancakes cool for 5 minutes. Just before serving, top each pancake with a dollop of the yogurt.
