Avocado Bread


Avocados have become the new craze on the Internet.  I had appearances on the Dr.Oz show and Fox 29 here in Philadelphia and they wanted me to prepare different avocado recipes for each.  Being that my dad is a baker I wanted to try what I’d been taught since a child and resorted to baking an avocado bread.   I know it sounds weird but why let all the other fruits and veggies have fun being bread?  Avocados are so versatile and I promise this recipe will not disappoint.

Avocado bread
 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temp
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup mashed avocado*
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
 Preheat the oven to 325°F and line a small loaf pan with parchment paper.
In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
In another bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg and vanilla throughly and then the mashed avocado and lemon juice.
Gently fold in the flour mix, being careful not to over mix.
Spoon the batter (it is very thick) into the prepared pan and bake for 35-45 minutes or until an inserted wooden skewer is clean with a few crumbs clinging. Cool completely, slice and enjoy.
