Sugar: If desired, you can replace regular white sugar with coconut palm sugar.

Oil: A neutral tasting oil works best for this cake. Vegetable, sunflower or canola oil will all work well.

Milk: A non-dairy alternative ( almond, cashew, etc) will work in this cake.

How to Remove the Flesh from an Avocado:

  • First, place the avocado lengthwise on your cutting board.
  • Then, holding the avocado securely, cut it lengthwise, around the seed.
  • Hold the sliced avocado in the palm of your hand and using your other hand, twist it and rotate the two halves apart.
  • Remove the seed. Scoop out the green flesh with a spoon to puree. You won’t need the skin or seed. It can be discarded or composted. 🥑
