Ingredients

For the cake:

  • 1 15.25 ounce box chocolate cake mix
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup avocado (about 1 avocado, see note)
  • 1 ¼ cups nonfat milk
  • 1 cup (180g) semi-sweet chocolate chips

For the ganache:

  • 1 cup (180g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • cup liquid coffee creamer any flavor (see note)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 °F. Spray a 12-cup bundt pan with cooking spray that has flour in it, or grease and flour the pan.
  • Add avocado to a large bowl. Beat it with a hand mixer on medium speed until the large chunks are broken up. Add cake mix, eggs, and milk and beat at medium speed until smooth (some lumps remain), about 2 minutes. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Pour into prepared pan. Bake about 30-40 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean around the edge, slightly crumby in the center. Time will vary depending on your bundt pan. Cool cake completely before removing from pan.
  • To make the ganache, add creamer and chocolate chips to a microwaveable measuring cup or small bowl. Heat for about 1 minute. Whisk until all the chocolate is dissolved and the mixture is smooth. Let cool to thicken. Mine took about 2 hours to get to pouring but not runny consistency, the first hour was spent in the refrigerator, the second on the counter.
  • When ready to frost, turn cake out onto serving plate. Carefully drizzle ganache over cake. Place in refrigerator to set the ganache. Slice and serve!

Notes

  • Don't want to use avocado? No problem, substitute 1/2 cup vegetable oil in it's place.
  • Coffee creamer comes in so many flavors - choose your favorite! You can substitute heavy whipping cream if you prefer.
