Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

1 1/3 Cup(s) Sugar
1/2 Cup(s) Butter
2 Eggs, well beaten
1 Cup(s) Pureed avocado, the riper
the better the flavor
1/3 Cup(s) Buttermilk, I subbed some
sour use what
you got!!
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Nutmeg, freshly ground
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Allspice
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1 1/2 Teaspoon(s) Baking soda
1 1/2 Cup(s) All purpose flour
1/2 Cup(s) Chopped dates, I subbed
Dried cherries
1/4 Cup(s) Golden raisins
1/2 Cup(s) Walnuts, I used pecans
1 Pint(s) Heavy cream
1/4 Cup(s) Light rum
1 Cup(s) Confectioners sugar

from "Maurice's Tropical Fruit Cook Book" by Maurice de Verteuil (some
modifications in directions made) Cream sugar and butter together. Add
eggs; mix well. Add avocado puree; mix well. Lastly, add buttermilk.
Combine spices, salt, soda and flour. Gradually, add dry ingredients
to wet beating well; it should be on the stiff side. Add dates,
raisins and walnuts. Turn into a greased 9x9 inch baking dish and bake
for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean. Combine cream, rum,
salt and sugar and beat until stiff. (Of course, you must have your
bowl and beaters chilled to accomplish this!). Chill. Serve a "dollop"
of this cream on each piece of avocado cake. NOTE: This recipe can be
doubled and baked in a 9x13 inch pan. The cooking time remains the
same. I have never made the cream topping. I prefer to make a simple
glaze with confectioners sugar, lime juice and milk, although keeping
the cake "plain" is just fine. This is a lovely, moist, mildly spicy,
old fashioned cake. People will guess that it is a carrot or zucchini
cake if they don't know what the "secret" ingredient is. The batter is
a lovely shade of green, but the cake bakes up a brown color. Posted
