INSTRUCTIONS

Zucchini Bread Layers:

  1. Heat your oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, xanthan gum, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the erythritol, eggs, and coconut oil.  Stir in the sour cream and vanilla extract.
  4. Stir in the shredded zucchini.
  5. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until combined.
  6. Take roughly 1 tablespoon of batter (we like to use an ice cream scoop) and form 2 inch circles on the lined baking sheet spaced 2 inches apart.
  7. Use your finger to smooth the edges so that they are smooth and a nice circular shape.
  8. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the tops start to turn golden brown.
  9. Allow to cool before removing from the baking sheet.

 Cream Cheese Frosting Filling:

  1. Beat all the ingredients together with electric mixer in a medium sized bowl.
  2. Transfer the frosting to a piping bag or ziploc sandwich bag (if using a ziploc bag, snip off about 1” from the bottom corner of the bag).
  3. Pipe about 2 tablespoons of frosting on the bottom zucchini pie layer.
  4. Add another zucchini pie layer on top and gently press down so that the frosting spreads almost to the edge of the cake layers.
