Like the carrot cake, the beet is actually very sweet and makes wonderfully moist chocolate cake, and the kids did not even realize it was beetroot. A very rich chocolate cake that stays moist for days (if it happens to survive) that you can decorate as you like, I just poured over some melted chocolate (Dark and white) ..
125g unsalted butter softened
75g dark chocolate
50g cocoa powder, sifted
250g cooked beetroot, coarsely grated
300g brown sugar
3 large eggs at room temperature
225g self raising flour
¼ c. teaspoon salt
Melt the chocolate
Combine butter, sugar and eggs.
Add the melted chocolate.
Stir in flour, salt and cocoa powder.
Finally, add the beets.
Transfer the butter mixture into a buttered pan.
Bake in a preheated 180C oven for 45-50 minutes.
Let the cake cool in pan for about 10 minutes, then unmold onto a rack and let cool completely.
