Chocolate And Avocado, Together? This Bizarre But Brilliant Mousse Cake Makes It Work

A combination that's so wrong, yet so right

They said it couldn't be done.

How wrong they were.

The latest dessert to appear on the River Cottage YouTube channel offers up what seems a distinctly odd pairing, in the form of a chocolate and avocado mousse cake.

The recipe is incredibly simple and, with the cake being served raw, it's ready to eat within 20 minutes of completion. Placed upon a base of pecans and dates, the result is a lusciously smooth, rich chocolate treat that packs a punch.

The River Cottage crew have spent 15 years searching for weird and wonderful culinery novelties, so it's no surprise that chef Donal Skehan counts the Aussie team among his personal YouTube food heroes.
