I have to pay homage to my Guru of the Kitchen, Alton Brown. He is the one who inspired me to cook years ago. This was a recipe I learned from one of his shows with just a few changes.
At the end of this Instructable you will find a helpful way to cut and clean an avocado.
Step 1: Things you will need...
Things you will need for the cupcakes:
1c. All-Purpose Flour
1/4c. Unsweetened Cocoa Powder. ( I used Ghirardelli )
1 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 Large Egg
1/2c. Firmly packed Brown Sugar
1/2c. Granulated Sugar
1/2c Whole Milk
1/3c Strong Coffee
1/2c Unsalted Butter (Melted)
Things you will need for the icing:
1lb. Confectionery Sugar
1 Medium Avocado
1 Stick of Butter (unsalted)
1 teaspoon Lemon Extract
1/2 tablespoon Lemon Juice
Step 2: Making cupcakes.
In another bowl mix the egg, brown sugar, white sugar, milk, coffee, and melted butter.
Once the sugar mix is combined well slowly add in the flour mixture whisking until you have a nice batter.
Now pour the batter into the cupcake lined backing sheet. Fill each cup 2/3 the way full.
The recipe makes a dozen but I always have more!
Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. I always bake one pan at a time and rotate half way through cooking.
