3 cups of flour
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 baking soda
1 1/2 baking powder
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3 cups sugar
1 cup plus 2 tbsp mashed avocado
4 large eggs
2 tsp pure vanilla
3/4 cup buttermilk
1) Whisk together flour, cornmeal, salt, baking soda and baking powder.
2) Using an electric mixer, mix the butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add avocado and beat for another 2 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, ensure that the the ingredients are well combined. Beat in vanilla.
3) With the mixer on low speed, add half of the flour mixture and mix until combined. Add the buttermilk and the remaining flour mixture. Beat until just incorporated.
