I was inspired by Gooseberry and Avocado Loaf Cake Recipe by Bunnykitchen.com, thank you Poppy for the inspiration and has been dying to try out making cake with avocado.
So here I’ve decided to make an Avocado Chocolate Marble Cake. It turned out pretty good, a little dense (will need to tweak the recipe a little bit) but has a nice subtle avocado taste to it. Why with chocolate? Because back in Indonesia, we have a dessert drink made from avocado, condense milk and chocolate syrup, just like a smoothie and its somehow all complements each other. So I thought why not in a cake, minus the condense milk part…
If you want to try it at home here’s the recipe:
1 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
120 ml of light cream
100 g of melted butter
100 g of melted chocolate
2.5 teaspoons of baking powder
3/4 cup of sugar (I think you can get away with 1/2 a cup if you want it less sweet)
1 ripe avocado
Blend using a food processor one avocado, egg, melted butter and light cream put it aside.
In another bowl combine flour, sugar and baking powder and mix it together. Pour in the wet ingredients and combine it gently, try not to overwork the mixture. Then Take half of the batter in another bowl and mixed in the melted chocolate.
In loaf thin, to get the marble effect, you just need to layer green batter then chocolate batter when its all done, get a stick and swirl it around to create the marble effect.
Baked in a preheat 180C oven for 45-50 minutes, use a stick to check whether its ready, if the stick come out clean then your cake is ready!
Leave it out to cool down et voila, a nice afternoon tea cake is ready!
