Beetroot Chocolate Cake
I happened to buy some beetroot on my way home from work yesterday evening. I have always wanted to make a beetroot cake but have been very apprehensive over this as I am not too sure how to handle it. However after some assurance from Aunty Yochana, I decided to give it a try... and the final result.... very moist and yummy.. Here is the recipe:
130g shredded beetroot
80g melted butter
60g brown sugar
95g plain flour
25g cocoa powder
60g chocolate chips
1tsp double action baking powder
1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1. Mix melted butter, sugar and eggs and mix well.
2. All in flour, baking powder, soda, beetroot and chocolate chips and mix well.
3. Pour into a 6.5 X 3 X 3 loaf pan for 40 mins at 180C
