Avocado Bread

by

Yield: Make 1 loaf

Slice this pecan-studded bread thinly, then spread with softened cream cheese blended with lemon juice and grated lemon zest. Serve for afternoon tea or with fruit salad for lunch.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup mashed avocado (1 medium avocado)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 375°. Generously grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to blend thoroughly.
2. In a separate bowl, beat together the egg and avocado. Stir in the buttermilk. Add to the dry ingredients and blend well. Stir in the pecans. 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.
