Avocado Chocolate Cupcakes


  • 2 ea. large eggs
  • 1-1/2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 c. whole milk
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 3/4 c. unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
  • 2 T. Avocados From Mexico, mashed
  • 2 T. cajeta (Mexican caramel sauce)
  • 1 T. unsalted sweet butter, at room temperature
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • 3/4 t. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 t. baking soda
  • 1/8 t. salt
  • Powdered sugar for garnish to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cavity muffin pan with paper or foil liners, and set aside.
  2. Sift into a bowl the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, use hand-held mixer on medium-high speed to cream together the butter, avocado and sugar until they are light and fluffy, 4 minutes.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, and the vanilla. With mixer on medium speed, add the flour mixture in 3 additions alternating with the milk and ending with flour.
  5. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin tin, filling the cups three-quarters full.
  6. Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Unmold cupcakes and cool completely on a wire rack.
