Ok fill in the blank for me ☺
No, not really, alright you can, please do in your comments
I was going to say
Gosh the lengths I go to to write a post ☺
Way back here when I made Pumpkin Fruit Cake, Josiekitten made a comment about another type of cake that intriuged me.
So I went looking for a recipe here
So I had to try it in the name of research
I only cut a small piece
Just to taste you understand
Can you guess what it is??
Ok smarties, yes it is chocolate cake
But there is a surprise ingredient - well at least one I would never have thought to put in!!!
This cake is .....
Chocolate Beetroot Cake!!!!
So yummy, so moist, so delicious and is disappearing rapidly
3/4 cup oil - make sure its good quality, because it will affect the taste
1 cup sugar
1-1/4 cups plain flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp bicarb of soda
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup tinned beetroot puree, drained, reserve liquid
Beat together oil, sugar & egg
Sift together dry ingredients
Mix all ingredients together with beetroot puree until smooth
Add some beetroot liquid if too dry - I did not add any
Line a round tin with baking paper
Bake at 170C/338F for 50-60 minutes
The icing I just made, cause this family insists on cakes with icing
Just as a little fount of knowledge for those overseas.
Most Australians insist on having sliced beetroot on hamburgers and salad sandwiches!!!
There was a big up-roar when a major health, fast-food chain were going to take beetroot off their ingredients!!!
Until now it was the only way I would eat it
