I had never seen avocado until I came to Sydney. But now it has become my favorite fruit. I use it in salads, sandwiches, guacamole, parathas. I had made avocado cheese straw; they were crispy and tasty.
As avocado has high fat content the amount of additional butter or oil in dishes can be reduced and it will yield the same results. I love baking different variations of healthy cupcakes. This time I thought of using avocado for making eggless whole wheat cupcake. The flesh of the avocado generally turns to black when exposed to air. Hence sprinkle lemon juice over it to retain the nice green colour. The lemon juice when reacts with leavening agents helps in raising cakes and making them soft, spongy and fluffy.
I have used avocado and lemon juice. I added the lemon rind and when the cake was baking it released a very fresh aroma of lemon. The colour of avocado was also retained. The cupcakes had nice green colour. I have not used any artificial essence while making the cake. The lemon juice and lemon rind itself gives a nice aroma. As the avocado is buttery, less oil is used when making the cupcake. Addition of chocolate chips is optional. I have added it as children love it and can enjoy the cake more. You can add almond slices instead or some other nuts of your choice.
Do make these cupcakes and enjoy them warm with a cup of hot tea or coffee. Pack them in the lunch boxes or have them when you crave something sweet but healthy!
