Calories: 228 | Fat: 14g | Net Carbs: 4g | Protein: 4g
- ⅔ cup almond flour
- ¼ cup coconut flour
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ¾ tsp pumpkin pie spice
- ¾ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
- 2 tbsp butter, melted
- ½ cup pumpkin puree
- 1 large egg
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp ChocZero Maple Syrup
- ¼ cup butter, softened
- 3 oz ChocZero White Chocolate Chips, melted
- ¼ cup powdered sugar substitute
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract
In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a separate bowl combine melted butter, pumpkin puree, eggs, vanilla extract, and ChocZero Maple Syrup. Stir until combined.
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients and stir just until combined. Divide batter between two greased 4-inch ramekins.
Microwave each ramekin on high for 90 seconds to 2 minutes. Alternatively, the cakes can be baked at 350°F for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool on rack for 15 minutes before removing.
Frosting & Assembly:
In a medium bowl, using a handheld electric mixer, beat the butter at medium speed until creamy.
Melt the ChocZero White Chocolate Chips in a microwave by cooking at 5 to 10 second intervals at high power and stirring in between. Be careful not to cook too long or it can burn.
Beat the melted white chocolate into the butter. Then slowly beat in the powdered sugar substitute and vanilla until light and fluffy.
After the cakes are done cooling cut each one into two layers so there are four layers in all. Frost top of each layer and stack together to make a four layer cake. If enough frosting remains, use it to frost the sides of the cake.
