Avocado Cake

After my semi success with the Avocado Chiffon cake, I venture further to see whether I can intensify the green hue as I saw Food Me Mover's Avocado Cake with P seed was so beautiful.

Unfortunately, I puree the avocado too way in advance and it oxidised by the time I bake it.



Findings: Despite its colour, the cake is moist and soft.  With avocado as fats replacement over butter, this cake is definitely a healthier version of a butter cake.  Definitely a keeper.

I also omitted the frosting as the portion I left for it turned brown and I reckon that it will look awful as frosting.

  3. Awww too bad abt the avocado turning brown, next time add in some lime juice to keep it looking vibrant. But nonetheless your cake looks great!

    I think your cake looks lovely. I wouldn't imagine the avocado would make it very green even if you waited until the last minute. I must say, I would love to try this recipe. It sure looks delectable and moist. Thank you so much for sharing, Edith. I'll be saving this!
