Zucchini Cup or Cake with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

 

I love zucchini; to the point we overplanted them and needed to find new ways to consume this delicious vegetable! So here we are, zucchini cupcake or cake for that matter-eat it for breakfast or for dessert, either way it's just tasty.

What you will need

2 cups all purpose flour

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/3 cup canola oil

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/3 cup chopped pecans or walnuts optional

1 1/2 cups Shredded zucchini

8 ounces whipped cream cheese (regular cream cheese works too)

8 tablespoons butter

4 cups confectioners sugar (powdered sugar)

1 tablespoon lemon zest (preferably meyer)
