Vegan Avocado Chocolate and raisin cake

I took out the avocado to make some Guacamole for dinner and guess what it ended up as - An eggless, low fat and dairy free Dark chocolate Avocado and raisin cake. I was never able to click a pic of this cake earlier. This time around, I had to document it :). It is whole wheat as usual...So here we go!

You need: for a small loaf or a 1" high 8" round cake

  • Whole wheat flour - 1 1/2 cup
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder - 3 1/2 tbsps
  • Baking powder - 1 tsp
  • Baking soda - 1 tsp
  • Sugar (I used turbinado) - 1 cup or lesser
  • Oil (sunflower or olive) - 1/8 cup  or 2 1/2 tbsps
  • Avocado - 1 small or medium - mashed well
  • Water - 2 cups  (if you use all purpose flour - it may require 1- 1 1/2 cup)
  • Lemon or White Vinegar - 1 tsp
  • Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
  • Raisins - 1/4 cup
Procedure 
  1. Combine all the ingredients and fold in the mashed avocado to make a smooth batter. 
  2. You can use a loaf pan or a round tray for this.  Grease and sprinkle some flour and pour in the batter
  3. Bake in the middle rack at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes (Make sure to check after 20 minutes of baking)
  4. Do the fork/knife test and if it comes out clean..you are done!

I left the cake to form a neat crust...you could take it out when the top layer is still moist :)



Grab a slice with your cup of tea..have a lovely evening :)

PS: Still to get the whole wheat pastry flour..but managing with the whole wheat from kroger as of now
Whole wheat makes the cake a little denser than the all purpose (maida) version
You can reduce the amount of choclate in the recipe
