WELL NATURALLY CHOCOLATE BEET CAKE

Beetroot are one of the vegetables I hold pretty close to my heart. Probably since the early days when I obsessed over beetroot in can (so sweet!), but naturally, as with all things in food it seems I have evolved to love them just as they are rich from the soil, grated into salads, cooked and used in salads, blended into juices and smoothies or in this cake to provide a super rich deliciously wholesome flavour and nutrition punch to this decadent CHOCOLATE BEET CAKE.

WN JALWILL BEET CHOC CAKE POLR - 1

 

This cake is ON.THE.MONEY when it comes to nutrition, flavour and we’ve avoided adding sugars by utilising the sweetness of beetroot and dates, and enjoying the delicious naturally sweetened (with stevia) chocolate by Well Naturally No Sugar Added Chocolate. I’ve fed this one to little and big people alike and across the board it’s been given a double thumbs up so now it’s your turn for taste. Enjoy…¬†WN JALWILL BEET CHOC CAKE ING LSLR - 1

WELL NATURALLY CHOCOLATE BEET CAKE

Gluten free: Dairy free: Refined sugar free

Makes one large cake

Ingredients
For the cake
360g Well Naturally No Sugar Added Chocolate Rich Dark
2/3 cup coconut oil, melted
1 cup dates, pitted
4 eggs, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
Pinch of salt
150g almond meal
250g beetroot, peeled and grated

For the ganache
200g Well Naturally No Sugar Added Chocolate Rich Dark, chopped into small pieces
400g coconut cream

Method
1. Preheat oven to 180 Celsius and line a spring form cake tin with baking paper. Grease the base and sides with coconut oil.
2. To melt the chocolate, heat a saucepan full of water until gently simmering and place a stainless steel mixing bowl on top. Break up the chocolate into pieces and place in bowl. Allow to slowly melt, stirring occasionally and ensuring the heat does not get too high. It should take around 10 minutes to melt completely.
3. While the chocolate is melting, combine the coconut oil, dates, eggs, vanilla, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. Mix well. Gently stir through the almond meal and grated beetroot. Using a spatula, pour the melted chocolate into the batter and stir to combine.
4. Pour into the lined cake tin and bake for 45-55 minutes on the bottom rack of the oven.
5. While the cake is baking, make the ganache. In a medium saucepan heat the coconut cream gently until just boiling. Remove from the heat and slowly whisk in the chocolate pieces until melted and smooth.
6. Remove the cake from the oven and allow to sit for 20 minutes before transferring to a wire rack with a lined baking tray underneath. Once the cake has cooled use a spatula to spread the ganache over the top of the cake.
