Week 26: Chocolate and Beetroot cake

Story location: Home / food_and_drink / recipe_a_week /
25/Jun/2010

We have a monthly cake day in work, on the last friday of each month. My contribution was this chocolate and beetroot cake:

Chocolate and Beetroot cake

The recipe came from the Channel 4 website. A couple of months ago I mentioned to a colleague that I had some beetroot in the garden. He sent me the recipe and said it was better than you'd expect.

The beetroot from the garden was smaller than I expected. When I weighed it, it was closer to 75g than the 250g required so I had to go out and buy some more. The supermarket didn't have raw beetroot so I got cooked instead and I don't think it had any adverse effect.

The cake was quite good, with a nice gooey texture. I don't actually like beetroot so I was glad you couldn't really taste it in the cake. I peeled all the beetroot to reduce the chance of the cake having that 'earthy' taste which beetroot often has.
