Chocolate beetroot cake v2

Posted by Frances Chan on Wednesday, December 7, 2016, In : big cakes 

I made a chocolate beetroot cake in 2015 that used raw beetroot, this one uses cooked beets and I think that helps to give the cake a real fudgy texture. Kids won't even know there's beetroot in there! This recipe is from Marian Keyes' Saved By Cake, but I used less sugar.

Chocolate beetroot cake
