Chocolate Avocado Loaf Cake


By Natasha at danceflowlift.com

I make it no secret that I do not like avocados, but when a friend left a couple in my fridge, I thought it a good opportunity to experiment. How better to do this than with cake?.

Ingredients

Serves 4-6

  • 1 medium-sized ripe avocado
  • 150g coconut palm sugar
  • 170g plain flour
  • 50g good quality cocoa or cacao powder
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 200ml coconut milk
  • 80ml coconut oil (plus extra for greasing)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Method

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Using the extra coconut oil, grease and line a loaf tin.

Mash the avocado and beat together with the sugar until smooth.

Add all the remaining ingredients to a food processor or mixer and blitz until a silky smooth batter is formed.

Pour the batter into the prepared tin and bake for 40- 45 minutes, or until an inserted knife comes out clean.

Leave the cake to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then transfer onto a wire rack to cool completely. Serve with juice, coffee or your favourite tea and enjoy!
