The Back Story
Many a time, I have stood by a basket of raspberries and wondered what exact shade of lipstick might match the color, because they are just so beautiful.So armed with two tiny baskets full of raspberries, I walked back from the farmer’s market dreaming of using them in a recipe.
The avocados I bought earlier that week were sitting in my refrigerator just chilling. An idea slowly started to form in my mind, what if I bake a cake with raspberries & avocados?
How to make the raspberry avocado cake?
Donning my hands with a pair of double gloves(my egg allergy!) with the egg beater in hand, I set about beating the eggs.Once done I gently added the flour, cocoa powder, sugar in a mixing bowl and mixed it all together.
Next the pureed raspberries and avocado went into the mix.The batter was ready to go into the oven.
- Preheat the oven , grease the baking pan and fill in the batter.
- Gently place it in the middle rack of the oven and bake it for 30-40 minutes.
- Stick a toothpick to check if it is baked in the center, once done.
- Sit it on a cooling rack for 10 minutes .
- Gently remove the cake from the pan , once cool, by inverting it on to a plate.
- Cut and serve.
The moist softness and the delicious flavor of raspberries, along with the sweetness of the chocolate is sure to get you hooked into making this cake more often for your family.
