Avocado Chocolate Cake ~ 鳄梨巧克力蛋糕


I made this Avocado Chocolate Cake with homegrown avocados and no butter was involved in this recipe.  Instead the recipe called for some vegetable oil and the cake turned out  moist and soft.   Together with the chocolate frosting, the cake was an instant hit with both the adults and kids.

  1. How interesting! Since you also used avocado in the frosting, can the cake keep well in the fridge for a day or two? Or were they all gone? hee..hee...

  4. Your cake looks so moist and divine! One slice is not enough!
    Homegrown avocados, that is really great! My sis recently bought an avocado plant. I would need to do lots of clearing up before I get one myself. Did you grow the plant in a pot? How long does it take to bear fruit? Hehe, so curious, as I thought of getting one later.

    1. I didn't grow this avocado plant. I made this cake in Perth during my recent vacation and this tree is grown from the ground, not potted. It's not too tall but need a short ladder to reach and harvest the fruits. Perhaps you can google for more tips on growing an avocado plant.
