Avocado and custard in cake? You must be joking. Well, to me it’s not joking. It’s a multipurpose ingredients. I know avocado is used to make guacamole, spread on bread and salad. Why not make a cake with it?
How custard can be a cake, and shouldn’t it be in a pudding? Well, it can be added into cake beside pudding or tart. Being creative, love experimenting and exploring my ingredients have come up with the possibility dessert with a twist which bring inspiration from only making a pudding and brings it into a new age hearty, comfort and delicious cake.
Avocado and yoghurt is a delightful combination to this cake. Custard and avocado added together did create hearty comfort cake that is truly new favourite. The picture may not looks beautiful to convince; you would say. I dare say its indeed a delicious cake.
