Avocado Bread

Avocado Bread, a Sweet, Dense and Moist bread.

Avocado Bread

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


  1. Preheat the oven to 375F. Generously grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.
  2. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and all-spice in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to blend thoroughly.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
