Chocolate Avocado Oil Cake with Strawberry and Pink Peppercorn Buttercream Frosting

Jump to recipe

When brands approach me with projects, I am careful to choose who I work with, because I am particular with what kind of ingredients I use in my daily foods for my family‚Äôs needs. I will not work with a brand that I do not believe in, or if I know that they do not use good ingredients, or have good ethical practices. So when Feedfeed asked me if I was interested in working with La Tourangelle, my instant reaction was OF COURSE! I have been wanting to work with this brand for the longest time, for various reasons! For one, they are locally based in Berkeley and I believe in supporting local brands and local businesses. Secondly, they are organic and 100% all-natural expeller pressed and free of chemicals, which makes me feel good that I am using good ingredients in the food that I put on the table for my family. Thirdly, their packaging is so chic and they are environment friendly too! ūüôā

So, I am very excited to partner with Feedfeed and La Tourangelle on this project to showcase their oils! I created a Chocolate Avocado Oil Cake with a Strawberry and Pink Peppercorn Buttercream Frosting! The Avocado Oil is a pretty emerald green oil has a fine fruity roundness that makes it lovely for both sweet and savory applications. The avocado oil was used to make the chocolate cake. It is a very moist cake, and spongy and delicious!

I made a fresh Strawberry and Pink Peppercorn Jam to put into the buttercream frosting. The jam is done in 15 minutes, and is super delicious, on plain toast as well! I used the jam to make an American Buttercream frosting. To add more strawberry flavor and color, I added freeze dried strawberry powder as well, it enhances the taste a lot! The buttercream compliments the chocolate avocado oil cake, really well and is absolutely fantastic in taste. I made a plain buttercream frosting with various colors for pretty piping, using rosette and star tips. I also used edible gold leaf to give it that touch of elegance as well.
