Avocado as a sweet cake?
Why not to try!
Until now, I thought avocado was only suitable as an addition to sandwiches, eggs, as a salad or as one of the ingredients of sushi.
When I was browsing through culinary blogs I came across some cake made with avocado. I love experimenting in my kitchen, so I decided to prepare a vegan substitute for the recipe that I found on the internet.
This is what you need:
- 150 g of dates soaked in water (preferably the day before)
- 200g cashew nuts
- 30 g of coconut oil
- Optional: chia seeds
- 250 g avocado pulp (I added for stronger taste 2 fruits, it is about 500 g pulp)
- 160 g of amaranth flour or a mixture of soy flour and rice
- 150 g ground oatmeal
- 5 g baking powder
- 75 g of stevia (the original recipe is 150 g sugar, but stew is twice sweeter, so do not overdo it)
- 1 – 1 1/2 banana
- A spoon of coconut oil
- Pinch of salt
- 2 tablespoons dark cocoa
- 6 dates
- 1 avocado or coconut oil (quantity per eye)
Bottom: Put all the ingredients in the blender and mix thoroughly until smooth
Cake: Mix all dry ingredients thoroughly and add crushed bananas and avocados. We all mix thoroughly
Topping: put it into the blender and blend it
The baking paper put into the form and place the bottom of our cake on it so that it is roughly the same thickness everywhere and then pour our cake.
We bake in 180 degrees for about 60 minutes or to dry sticks
Once cooled, add homemade chocolate and cook it up!
It can also be served with vegan whipped cream, made from coconut milk.
Why should you eat avocados?
It contains a lot of oleic acid, which lowers cholesterol. In addition to fats, which are from 30% to 40%, it also contains vitamin E – E, A, B1, B2, C, PP, K and H. With the potassium content, it regulates blood pressure. It is a good source of fiber, because for 100 grams of fruit it is 6.3 g.
