Avocado Chiffon Cake ~ 鳄梨戚風蛋糕


This is a soft, moist and fluffy chiffon cake with a slight hint of creamy avocado.   No oil is used in this recipe as the avocado is already creamy by itself.  Great to serve with a hot cup of coffee or tea for breakfast or just to snack on.

  2. Hi just curious. I've noticed it's only 75 grams of sugar on the recipe. Does the avocado also add some sweetness? I would like to try making this recipe. Thanks xx Hetty.

    1. For chiffon cakes, the sugar content is not as much as for plain cakes. The avocado does not add sweetness to the cake but you can get a bit of creamy taste in the cake.
