Avocado in a cake ?


Yup...that is true. I didn't believe it either until I saw the recipe in Table for 2.... or more. Sometimes we just cook dishes out of curiosity. No food colouring added, the green really comes from the avocado ! The color, the simplicity and the using of avocado had caught my eyes once I saw it and I bookmarked it immediately !


I promised you to post fruit recipes this month and I will keep my promise. This recipe is one from some of fruit recipes I already prepared. I can imagine that it's going to be colourful like summer.

The original recipe can be viewed on the link I've mentioned above, I did a little twist by adding chocolate ganache topping and pistachio. Okay, it's a quick post and a quick update. Only to keep my promise to you. Be back with another fruits and colors.

      As long as you follow the recipe, the cake would come out nice. Hope you like the cake and have a nice try :)

  5. I was going to try this recipe one day but I will make smaller amount of butter and add more avocado as avocado is a greater substitute for creaminess of butter in the healthy side LOL. TY
