DIRECTIONS

  • CAKE:
  • HEAT oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray two (8-inch) round cake pans with no stick baking spray; set aside.
  • SIFT flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl; set aside.
  • BEAT avocados, sugar, lime juice and zest in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium high speed for 4 minutes or until mixture is fairly smooth and fluffy. Add water and then add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • REDUCE mixer speed to low and add flour mixture. Mix until flour is incorporated into avocado mixture. Divide batter equally between the two prepared pans and spread evenly.
