This could also be titled: the first time I made a cake with an avocado. Or, the cake that almost wasn't.
Everyone has a birthday.
Oh, you already knew that, huh?
Well, there seem to be a lot more of them than is normal in our little village in Mexico. I already need two hands to count the amount of birthdays that have happened JUST while we've been here these last two weeks!
I can't buy gifts for all of these, but what I can do is bake! So, that's what I've decided to do. When I know a birthday is coming up, I try to bake a cake for the birthday boy/girl/group. This is my second one so far (the first was was for like, 5 kids at once).
To change it up, I thought I'd do a chocolate bundt cake this past weekend for Jaci's big day. When I found this recipe on pinterest, I was instantly intrigued that it said to use avocado instead of oil or butter! I love avocado! Sounded like fun ;)
Here's a better view.
I bought a churro!
It was literally ready in minutes. I poured that yummy chocolate all over that ugly cake, added some chocolate sprinkles, and voila! Ugly cake no more! And I know it tastes good because I was able to eat the half that was left in the bundt pan!
