Preheat oven to 350°F; grease 9-inch Bundt pan. In heatproof bowl set over saucepan of gently simmering water, melt chocolate chips. Meanwhile, in large bowl, sift together icing sugar, cornstarch, almond flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and salt. In separate bowl, using electric mixer, beat melted chocolate, eggs and avocado purée until smooth; gradually beat in icing sugar mixture.

Scrape batter into prepared pan. Bake until cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool in pan on rack; invert cake onto rack. Remove pan. Sprinkle with pistachios and dust with icing sugar.

Test Kitchen Tip: Get creative: Turn a springform pan into a serving dish for a novel presentation!
