Gluten Free Chocolate Beetroot Cake Recipe

Hi! I love chocolate and especially chocolate cake.

Recently my mum made a chocolate cake and, after my brother and I had enjoyed a big piece, she asked if we liked it. We both said it was delicious. Mum then told us that it had a tin of beetroot in it, my brother nearly died!

The beetroot makes the cake really moist and you’re adding a vegetable to the cake which has to be a good thing. Its also fun blitzing up the beetroot.

So here is my mum’s chocolate beetroot cake. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Happy cooking.
