Our friend Steph recommended these avocado chocolate cupcakes to us. When she first told me about them, I was in complete disbelief because avocado chocolate cupcakes wasn’t something I was used to. But I do love avocados, and drink avocado milkshakes, and want to try this avocado frozen yogurt, so why not chocolate avocado cupcakes too?!
We used this recipe (for some reason the sites not working right now) that Steph sent over and it came out great. I did some slight changes to the recipe, like I only used 1/2 cup of sugar, used sweetened chocolate because that’s what I had on hand, and significantly lessened the amount of sugar in the frosting as well. The cupcakes came out nice and round fresh out of the oven, but then slowly sank down after a few minutes. I’m not sure if it’s something I did or the recipe (anyone have an idea why?), but whatever, we just slopped on some frosting, which was also made from avocado, added some sprinkles, and you hardly noticed the sunken in tops.
The girls all really liked and it and I especially liked the frosting. I think that would be my go-to chocolate frosting from now on, especially since it has a much more healthy fat than butter. True’s birthday is coming up and she has been requesting a vegetable cake (where she gets these ideas, I do not know). I’m thinking of either doing this again in cake form or I’m thinking a good red velvet cake recipe using beets. Anyone have a good recipe to share for that?
