But anyways, I have been working on this avocado marble cake recipe since last Summer but every time I made it, something was wrong.
After a gazillon tweaks, this recipe is now PERFECT!
This cake is soft and moist and has a very light greenish tinge… Kinda pretty!
It’s not too dense like a pound cake but not too airy like a chiffon cake either…there’s a nice balance.
I know most of you are worried that you will taste the avocados but trust me when I say this=> You can’t taste them at all.
My husband couldn’t tell and he has a very strong palette!
And the the best thing about this marble cake is there is no need to make it pretty, thanks to all those beautiful chocolate swirls
To make this avocado marble cake, you will need the following ingredients:
Avocado cake batter:
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 cups sugar 1 1/2 cups fat free milk
1 avocado (pureed into a smooth paste so there are no lumps) 4 large eggs 1/8 tsp salt 4 tsp baking powder 2 tbsp vanilla extract
Chocolate batter to create the “marbling” effect:
1 1/2 cup avocado batter (same as above)
1/3 cup cocoa powder
4-5 tbsp of evaporated milk (more or lesss may be needed to make batter smooth)
5 tbsp sugar
And here are the steps:
Puree your avocado into a smooth paste so there are no lumps. I found a blender worked well for this and then I just dumped the pureed avocados into a deep mixing bowl.
Then, add sugar and mix everything.
Step 2: Add eggs, one at a time, and mix until everything is smooth but don’t stop…
…continue mixing for about 3 minutes until the batter becomes light green and creamy.
