Avocado Choco-Walnut Cake

Avocado chocolate cake is very similar to a no frosting chocolate cake or a brownie. One easy and healthy snack often enjoyed, with a hot piping tea/coffee. I know its hard to imagine avocado in a cooked or baked form, as its usually enjoyed raw in shakes, smoothies, spreads or as a dip. This recipe was a mere experiment, but it surprisingly turned out to be success.
