Chocolate Beetroot Cake (Gluten & dairy free)


100g Dark Chocolate
3 Eggs
250g Sugar
200ml Olive Oil
300g Cooked Beetroots
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
50g Cocoa Powder
200g Ground Almonds
1 1/2tsp Baking powder
1/4tsp Salt


Pre heat oven to 180C. Boil beetroots until soft, cool and remove skins then blend or mash until fairly smooth. Melt the chocolate over a double boiler. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar and oil. Slowly add the cooked beet puree, melted chocolate and vanilla into the egg mixture. Beat until just combined. Sift the cocoa. Add this and the almond meal, baking soda and salt to the beet batter. Fold until everything is combined - do not over-mix. Oil a 10 inch cake pan & pour the cake batter in. Bake for approximately 50 minutes - the cake is ready when a tooth pick or skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.

Looks so good Gill! They are always great, but a particularly good combination of veg for us this week! Just made a veggie lasagne with the squash, leeks and mushroom. Yum! X
