2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp all-spice
1 avocado, mashed (I use Haas avocados)
1 large egg
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 Tbsp orange zest
- Preheat the oven to 375F. Generously grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.
- Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and all-spice in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to blend thoroughly.
- Remove the avocado from the skin and remove pit, place avocado in a separate bowl, and mash the avocado. Beat together the egg and avocado. Stir in the buttermilk and orange zest.
- Add to the dry ingredients and blend well. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
This is a great sweet breakfast bread, it is very similar to banana bread. It has a wonderful flavor and you would never know it was made with an avocado. I thought the addition of the orange zest would add a fresh flavor to the bread and it does and I also love seeing the little orange color pop in the bread. I know the thought of eating avocado bread sounds weird but it is a moist and delicious quick bread. Give it a try!
