This chocolate cake with avocados is the one my son asks for the most. I didn't realize I hadn't published it until these days I've been looking for recipes published with avocados after my friend Raquel de Los Tragaldabas posted a beautiful avocado photo last week and Laura de Or ’ Food I would challenge to publish my favorite recipe with avocado.
Right away I knew what recipe published, but looked and searched without success because it didn't have it posted!. Give me account that was not on the blog, I decided without hesitation repeat it for you with the unanimous applause of House and my son of course, that he used to take it home a friend with a resounding success among the participants.
It's a cake very easy and healthy, and that it does not have eggs, no refined sugar, no butter and however its flavor is intense and very spongy texture. I promise that it will become your Joker and you will not believe how easy that is. It is the recipe for chocolate cake that accompanies me for many years and I hope you love it as much as my son go for her!
