Avocado Milk Pound Cake

Avocado is a kind of fruit that I have never purchase before until my little started on his semi solid. Although I do enjoy those sushi that wrapped with avocado but I never think of buying it and eat. Now avocado is one of the fruits that is in my regular shopping list, to purchase for my little kicker due to the great health benefits. 

Since I have one avocado left in the fridge, so I decided to make something with it. I went blog hopping and saw this avocado milk pound cake and decided to give it a try. I adjusted the amount of the ingredients since I had only one  avocado to bake the cake.

Recipe from Table for Two or More.


Ingredient : (for 8" x 3.5" x 3” loaf pan)
77g butter
33g sugar
80gm avocado flesh (used 1 avocado)
3/4 tbsp lemon juice
100g condensed milk
135 cake flour
165g all purpose flour
2/3 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
2 small eggs

1. Combine avocado flesh with lemon juice and mash until fine. Pass it through a sieve. Set aside.
2. Sift cake flour, all purpose, baking powder and baking soda together. Set aside.
3. Cream butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one by one, beating well after each addition.
4. Beat in condensed milk until well incorporated. Put half the sifted flour in and mix on low speed. 
5. Add the balance of flour. When everything is smooth, on low speed beat in avocado puree.
6. Pour batter into a lined loaf pan and bake in preheated oven for 35mins or until done.

My cake did not come out good, the texture is a bit dry, probably I had either over mix or over bake the cake. As for the taste wise, I dun really can tell it is avocado flavour, the taste is actually quite neutral. 


  1. You trained your little one well. Avocado is not for everyone's taste bud. I only like it when it compliment with other food.

  2. Your avocado milk pound cake looks delicious there.i had made once b4 using a if fervent recipe but not ure how muh of difference between the 2recipes. Yes, I used to mix avocado with baby cereal & let my children eat. Now I like to use it to mix with boiled eggs & mayonnaise & spread on my bread

  3. 我很喜欢牛油果的味道

  4. Try Avacado ice cream , they are creamy and good. By the way, what is your camera model? Kind of looking for one new camera.

  5. Hi Edith, I think is good to start training the kids to eat when they are still baby, they have no choice lol. I am also still learning how to eat avocado heeheehee...

  6. Jessie, oh sound great to mix with mayo and egg to spread on the bread, I bet it will taste delicious since I love mayo and egg spread. I mix the avocado with cereal or other fruits to feed my baby, sometimes just mashed and let him eat, so far he is ok lol.

  7. 鲸鱼蓝蓝蓝, I am still learning to eat this fruit without compliment with other food leh lol.

  8. Hi Sonia, ya I am going to try to make it with ice cream.

    I am using my husband's DSLR, Canon EOS D7 which he just upgraded think end last year from Canon EOS 60D.

    Dun use my photos to judge this camera as I am still trying very hard to make friend with it, not easy though since I am not a camera lady lol.

  9. Avocada in cake? This is new..looks simply wonderful. I've always wanted to make avocado ice cream but have yet to..soon. hopefully.

  10. Jess, i love avocado very much, it is one of my regular veggies in my salad. This avocado pound cake looks smooth and healthy. Love it

  11. i never tried avocado in cakes before but like them in sandwiches and wraps a lot! very rare just eating it the fruit alone.

  12. This is really unique! I've never baked with this combination and I can't wait to give this a try. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  13. i never buy avocado before, normally drink the juice buy from outside...

  14. I love avocado and it's one of my favourite fruit to add in sandwiches or salad. And your cake look great with that tint of green. Would love to try this recipe :)

  15. Holy moly, this sounds great! I have never baked with avocado before, I must try it out!

  16. Hi Jess, so nice to see you back in action again. The cakes sound wonderful.
    Have a great week ahead, dear.

  17. I love avocados, but have never made them in a cake... this looks so delicious with the creamy goodness of avocados!

  18. Jess,
    If it taste dry, the batter could be too acidic. You reduced 1/3 of the recipe, but you have also reduced 1/2 of the baking soda of which is slightly too much. The function of the baking soda is to reduce the acidity and hence enhance the texture, if not it will be dry and 'sticky' to the bite.
    Avocadoes on its own are pretty bland, what more baked into a cake. Which is why I added the condensed milk :)
    I'm sorry that this recipe didn't work out for u.

  19. Hi Wendy, thanks for the explanation, I will take note in future.

  20. I made this cake twice ma, the first time I did not add enough baking soda and the texture was like.. powdery. I think you can stick to 1/4 tsp baking soda even if you slightly reduced the recipe because I still do find the recipe is a little bit acidic.


Thank you for dropping by.
