Beetroot is a great 'surprise' vegetable ingredient in cakes that adds a wonderful depth of colour and flavour that perfectly complements chocolate.
This is a really moist and chocolatey cake. Simple to make. The kids didn't even realise it had beetroot in the first time I made it. Decorate by dusting with icing sugar or it is delicious served warm with custard.
Beetroot and chocolate are a match made in heaven - try this cake and see. Watch this recipe being made in the Allrecipes Chocolate Beetroot Cake Video.
Serve as 'Purple Velvet Torte'. This is a gluten free, dairy free and sugar free cake perfect for special occasions.
This cake goes in the oven pink and comes out a nice rich beige colour. I often ice it with a cream cheese icing.
It might seem like an odd combination but the deep earthy flavour of beetroot is the perfect complement to chocolate. It keeps the cake nice and moist too.
I was really impressed with this cake and had to get the recipe, I like that by using raw beetroot you get the bright red colours speckled through it rather than the whole cake turning red.
Beetroot makes a chocolate cake extremely moist and adds a nice deep flavour. This is the perfect cake for a dessert after a dinner party.
Cakes are often made with apple, banana and pumpkin so why not beetroot? This cake is rich and moist and has the best colour all courtesy of the beetroot.
The beetroot in this cake provides a lot of moisture and tastes delicious. Don't knock it until you've tried it! Leave yourself plenty of time to make this cake which is best eaten when it is still slightly warm.
