I get asked to make this all the time. It's made with raw grated beetroot. Lovely flavour!
After consultation with this recipe's submitter, the flour that was missing from the ingredients in this recipe has now been added.
This is by far the best chocolate cake I have ever made in 40 years of baking. I actually used a large round tin and the cake held it's shape beautifully. It is a moist, rich, dark cake with amazing chocolatey flavour and light consistency. I can see this becoming be a firm favourite with family and friends. Three people have already asked for the recipe. Thanks for posting! - 01 Dec 2011
so easy and delicious! (also very easy to adjust for those with food allergies!) - 06 Mar 2010
Altered ingredient amounts. I noticed this recipe had NO flour in it at all, after starting to make it - which made me a little suspicious that this must be a mistake? Then googled and found a recipe almost identical but with 2 1/2 cups flour - so I added this amount of wholemeal. They seem to have turned out well (although could possibly have reduced the flour a little), so I think the flour must have been omitted in the original. Also, I used brown (sticky) sugar and substituted about half the amount of honey for golden syrup. - 12 Dec 2009
