Avocado Can Be Substituted for Butter to Make the Most Delicious Cake Ever
The latest culinary innovation that will make you mouth water is guacamole, minus the onions, lime and garlic... plus chocolate.
Avocados are the creamy, fatty secret to baking delicious, moist vegan cakes, and the recipe substitution is so simple, you're wonder why you've been a slave to dairy all these years.
It's way healthier for you.
Avocados are rich in Omega-3s and vitamin E, as well as healthy monounsaturated fats that are good for heart health and can help reduce belly fat.
And according to Popsugar, avocados actually have less calories per quarter-cup serving than butter does — about 300 fewer, to be exact.
Congratulations, cake is basically a health food now. Nice work!
The actual substitute process is a piece of... cake
To make your favorite baked goods lean and green instead of butter-filled, simply mash up some avocados into about half the quantity as the amount of butter that your recipe calls for in a measuring cup.
Cooking website the kitchn also suggest that you might have to mess with the wet ingredients a bit, since the avocado won't melt down in the same way that the butter would have.

According to The Daily Meal, your finished product might turn out even more delicious than it would have if you had used the standard dairy fare:
Because of the high quantity of water in an avocado, your baked goods like breads and muffins will come out of the oven much softer and less likely to crumble than if you were to use butter.
So, there you have it. Pour yourself a glass of milk and dig in — and never, ever give away your secret ingredient.
