Chocolate Avocado Cake Recipe

Chocolate Avocado Cake RecipeWe are thrilled to share this recipe, which dares to combine two of our favorite aphrodisiacs. Chocolate cake is, of course, a classic and baking it in a bundt pan helps ensure even cooking and moistness.

But add avocado? It may sound outrageous to some, but avocado can make a delicious baking fat, helping to make a perfectly moist, irresistible cake. (And of course, avocado is an aphrodisiac of legendary repute!) Thank you to Chef Maite Gomez-Rejon for this truly sensual chocolate cake recipe.
