Recipe

Beetroot and chocolate cake

Ingredients

    - Pre-heat oven to 180oC prior to starting to ensure oven is hot when cake placed in the oven

    - Smooth Margarine and Sugar using electric whisk

    - Slowly mix in milk with a wooden spoon (it will be curdly and runny but that’s ok)

    - In a separate bowl blend flour and baking powder

    - Add flour blend bit by bit to margarine, sugar and milk with the electric whisk on low speed.

    - Grate the beetroot with a processor and place straight into the final cake mix and blend at high speed to fluff the mixture and incorporate air.

    - Batter must be slightly stiff as beetroot has a lot of water when cooking it will soften throughout cooking.

    - Prepare the melted chocolate to swirl into the cake batter: Place a pan with ½ pint of water on to heat but not boil. Place a stainless steel bowl on top of the pan but not touching the water.

    - Pour in Coconut milk and Coconut oil and heat together stirring continuously until warm.

    - Add the vegan chocolate chips and continue to cook whilst stirring constantly with a wooden spoon (Turnahpot J) until the chips are melted completely and the mixture is smooth.

    - Slowly, pour in the smooth vegan chocolate mixture and use the Figure 8 method of mixing the batter to create a smooth blend.

    - To incorporate some air, just whisk now with the hand whisk on high speed for about 2 minutes or until fluffy.

    - Slowly pour the mixture into a loaf tin which has grease proof paper (the loaf cases used for bread making or greased tin)

    - Oven temperature must remain @ 180oC for 38 – 40 mins without opening the oven door.

    - Remove the cake from the oven, test that a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the middle of the cake (return to the oven for 5 mins if it hasn’t)

    - Remove the cake from the oven, test that a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the middle of the cake (return to the oven for 5 mins if it hasn’t)

    - Now leave to cool for up to 2 hours before cutting or removing from tin. (This will allow the cake to set)

    - You can smother with vegan chocolate ganache found in our cookbook. It is so gorgeous!
