Ingredients

  • 1 ripe Hass avocado, halved, seeded, peeled and mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 Cup cocoa
  • 3/4 Cups dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 Cups almond flour

Directions

Preheat oven to 350⁰F. Grease an 8x4-inch loaf pan.

In a small bowl combine almond flour, cocoa, salt, cardamom, baking soda and baking powder; set aside.

In a large bowl beat avocado and sugar at medium speed until smooth. While beating, add eggs; beat on high speed until fluffy, about 1 minute.

Fold dry ingredients into avocado mixture until blended; remove to prepared pan.

Bake 55 minutes; cool. Cut with sharp serrated knife for best results

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.

Chocolate Wine Pairing

Sweet chenin blanc, muscat, or amontillado sherry with nut-based desserts; sauternes or sweet German wines with pound cake, cheesecake, and other mildly sweet desserts; sweet chenin blanc or muscat or Alsatian vendange tardive (late harvest) wines with sweeter desserts; sweet chenin blanc or muscat or Alsatian vendange tardive (late harvest) wines, port, madeira, late-harvest zinfandel, or cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc with chocolate desserts.
