You know what happens when you run out of sugar?
Yeah, I put avocado in my cake. And you know what, it is good. And kind of, like healthy!
So on Sunday I had these big plans to make these fancy triple chocolate cake balls. Full of sugar, chocolate, butter and more chocolate. But then I went to grab the sugar only to find a very empty container. Not a grain of sugar was left. Now normally this is not a problem. I always have plenty of backups. Well I guess not always, cause when I went to get those they were nowhere to be found.
Backups = Gone.
Panic mode hit. No sugar!
Now there was no way I was going to the store on Superbowl Sunday. I am pretty crazy, but not that crazy!
So I kept the cake ball idea, but tossed the white sugar and butter and swapped in some avocado and whole wheat flour. I had no sugar but like 15 avocados. When Hass avocado’s are on sale for 77 cents (people 77 cents) you buy a lot. A lot!
I of course kept the chocolate. For the antioxidants! Never skimp on the chocolate.
Because we are baking the avocado I promise you can not taste it. All it does is moistness to the cake without adding any unhealthy fat! Winner, winner! As for the sugar, I used a little brown sugar to sweeten things just a little.
Then I proceeded to cover these moist fudgy cake balls in a dark chocolate coating. For more antioxidants.
I’ll have some avocado with my chocolate, please.
