Poppy seed and avocado cake
It’s been a while I wanted to publish this recipe, which is one of my favourite desserts. Avocado in a sweet cake? What a weird idea! Believe me it works like a charm.
I tried an avocado cake for the first time at the Duke of Cambridge. They had a quite bare version of it, without icing or cream on it but it was a delight nevertheless!
Still, I needed more bite and texture…
At about the same time I discovered a great recipe for a Poppy seed cake (thank you Heidi!). I love the crunchiness of the seeds. One problem though is the 250g of butter that comes with it. No really an everyday treat.
So I told to myself: Why not replace the butter with avocado? It will make your cake moist just like butter but it’s much healthier.
I also needed an icing for my cake so I used good old avocado in it as well!
