Eggless Avocado Cake

Avocado in a cake....does that sound interesting ? This was the first time I used Avocado in baking. Making this cake was a complete experiment and I kept my fingers crossed ;) . But to my relief, the cake turned out just great and I just loved the green colour. A fresh look...very natural colour....and don't they look yummy ?? I feel so happy that its another eggless bake from my kitchen !! But I couldn't take better clicks of the cake to show you the lovely colour of the cake :(.

One thing I observed is nobody can make out that the cake has avocado in it, not by taste. I couldn't feel any strong flavour of avocado in it. But when I offered it to my hubby, he guessed it right, of course by looking at the colour :). I added some dates too to make it more healthy. Kids who don't like avocado can be given this fruit,  in the form of this yummy cake with such a pretty colour. They will surely love this Green cake !!




You need...

1 1/4 cup All Purpose flour
1 tsp Baking powder
3/4 tsp Baking soda
1/2 tsp Salt

1 small ripe Avocado
3/4 cup Sugar
3/4 cup Milk
1/2 cup Oil
1.5 tsp Vanilla extract

3-4 tbsp chopped Dates


To prepare..

Sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Keep aside.

Cut the avocado into half.  Remove the pit and scoop out the flesh. It came about a little more than 1/2 cup for me. Blend avocado, vanilla extract, sugar and milk together. Put this in a bowl. Add oil to this and whisk well.

Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a cake pan and keep it ready.

Now slowly add the flour mixture a little by little to the wet ingredients and combine it. Finally add the dates and mix slowly. I found the cake mix is thicker and denser than the usual cake mixes. If its too thick, add a few tbsp of milk.

Pour this to the cake pan. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted at the centre comes out clean. Cool completely and cut into pieces. Enjoy the colourful and delicious cake !!
