This week’s #TastyTuesday is a bit of a cheat, a beta version.
Boy and I experimented with the concept of an avocado cupcake. OH (being a traditionalist) instantly went into yuck mode.
Green cake, he bemoaned.
Why ruin a good avocado? (He likes them spread on toast, with bacon. Like I said, a traditionalist).
We took a recipe from Will Cook for Smiles. We substituted wholemeal spelt flour for the flour and changed the proportions so 1/4 was cocoa powder. (To give it my favourite taste and get rid of the green factor). And, of course, we added chocolate curls.
It tasted yummy, but like a lot of the other comments said, the icing was on the runny side. We also found that the quantities of flour and milk didn’t quite work out. (We ended up adding more flour. More cakes, so that was great. But not quite right). Subsequent attempt, same problem.
We tried again, omitting the cocoa powder and adding an overripe banana in place of the milk. Yummy. But we gave up on the icing and ate those with custard.
I shall return. And, when I do, the cupcakes will be perfect. Well, here’s hoping.
Joining with Honest Mum’s #TastyTuesday. Look forward to getting my weekly foodie inspiration!
