Gluten Free Avocado Devil’s Cake with Coconut Cream

Happy Halloween Y’all.  If you’re not trick or treating, then maybe a night of baking is in order. Besides, it’s another excuse to have cake. Who doesn’t love delicious moist cake? I added avocado to this delicious gluten free cake. I skipped the icing and opted for a creamy coconut whip that’s super easy to make a great alternative to dairy whipped cream. Not to mention that coconuts are full of essential fats that are great for you.

I hope you enjoy this cake a much as I do.
