Chocolate Avocado Bread

I’ve been baking a lot with avocados lately. The other day, I decided to try making a quick bread using avocados.

The avocados makes this chocolate quick bread rich and moist and it’s quite easy to put together.

The recipe I came up with had a little too much moisture. The cake bread seemed done and I took the loaves out of the oven and when they began to cool, they immediately began to deflate. So I put them back in the oven and luckily they started to rise again so I was able to save them. These took a lot longer to bake than I expected, but in the end they turned out alright. I’ve reduced the moisture content for the recipe below so it shouldn’t take as long to bake as mine did.

I’m excited to try out some more avocado cake and bread recipes. I’m hoping to use avocado to replace butter in a future recipe.
