I just found this admittedly curious idea: Chocolate doughnuts with Avocado Cream filling, from the Crazy for Crust blog. What? Avocado in a sweet dish? I feel like I saw something like this on Iron Chef once, but that must have been ages ago, and I might be imagining it. But really… I’m so curious, I want to give it a shot! I need a decent doughnut pan, though, if I’m going to do something like this.
I absolutely love avocados. When they’re on sale, I adore grabbing a whole bunch and making guacamole, but keeping it is hard. You’re not supposed to freeze it, I guess? I don’t know. But my dad used to sometimes just make guacamole for the family, and that was always a treat–everyone would stand around the kitchen island and just dig in with tortilla chips. My family is generally kind of individualistic, with my dad and brothers and myself spending a lot of time on the computer, while my mom hides out in her craft area, so when we’re all together, just talking and eating, I love it.
Still, ‘sweet’ avocado dishes? I am completely willing to give this a try, I’ll let you know when I do!
