Number of Servings: 18

Ingredients

    * 1 1/3 cup Sugar
    * 1/2 cup Butter, room temperature
    * 2 Eggs, well beaten
    * 1 cup Pureed avocado(about 2-3 avocados)
    * 1/3 cup Buttermilk
    * 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
    * 1/2 tsp Nutmeg, freshly ground
    * 1/2 tsp Allspice
    * 1/2 tsp Salt
    * 1 1/2 tsp Baking soda
    * 1 1/2 cup All purpose flour

Directions

Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the sugar and softened butter.
Add the eggs, and fold in thoroughly. Add avocado puree and
buttermilk, and mix well by hand or with a mixer. (I used a stand mixer for all of
these steps, and I pureed the avocado in there first, then added the
butter and sugar and creamed them all together. I didn't measure the
avocado, but I used the flesh of two decent size avocados and it
seemed fine.)

In a smaller bowl, combine the spices, salt, baking soda and flour. Mix well.

Gradually, add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, beating well.

Pour into 18 ungreased cupcake paper cups,
and cook for 20-25 minutes.

Remove from oven, and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
