Avocado and berries yogurt cake

Google: “Avocados are high in fat with 60 per cent of this being monounsaturated fats, which research suggests helps to protect against heart disease and lower blood pressure. They are also an excellent source of potassium, folate and fibre, all of which benefit the heart and cardiovascular system.”

Google: “”Yogurt is the fermented food produced by culturing cream, milk, or both with a characterizing bacterial culture that contains lactic acid-producing bacteria. Regular yogurt is usually made with cow’s milk, which makes it not suitable for those who are lactose intolerant. On the plus side, “it typically has more calcium, and is lower in calories and fat compared to Greek.”

“Berries are some of the healthiest foods you can eat. They’re low in calories and high in fiber, vitamin C, and antioxidants. Many berries have been associated with being beneficial for heart health. These include lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, while reducing oxidative stress.”

I am adding avocado and yogurt to my favourite fruits: berries. Of late I am feeling stressed out and felt like my heart is not feeling right. I love cake. So, I needed healthy, my favourite fruits and avocado to ease my heart feeling uneasy. I have gone to see the doctor. It’s ok now. Just got to eat cake. The cake is moist, healthy and delicious. Let’s bake!!!!

Ingredients

200 g plain flour, sifted
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp sea salt
500 g yogurt
300 ml sour cream
1 cup  castor sugar
3 extra-large eggs
3 Tsp grated lemon zest
1/2 Tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup olive oil
200 g mixed berries
1 whole avocado, remove seed

Method


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease the tube pan. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl. Using electric blender, blend together the yogurt, sour cream, sugar, eggs, lemon zest, vanilla, and oil.

Slowly blend the dry ingredients ( a ladle at a time) into the wet ingredients. Add the berries and avocado; fold them very gently into the batter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 60 minutes, or until a cake tester placed in the center comes out clean.

When the cake is done, allow it to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before flipping out onto a cake base. Cool completely before cutting up. Enjoy it with a cup of tea.
