chocolate beetroot cake

my first attempt at making a chocolate beetroot cake and the first thing that I made sure of was that I was wearing gloves.. as much as I love the colour pink, I don't need pink hands


so I cut the beetroot up to make it cook quicker


I had one beetroot that weighed about 400g

and note to future self, beetroot can splatter everywhere


I added them to water and boiled until soft




and then drained.. maybe next time I might roast them in the oven


the left over beetroot water I let cool and poured on my veggie patch


and then I pureed the beetroot


adding it to the chocolate mixture and I couldn't believe how pink it turned


look at that beautiful cake mixture :)


it baked into a beautiful cake


which I cut into small squares


and made a cream cheese icing




I fed this cake to my sister and father in law, both who hate beetroot and they both ate it and survived ;) hehe they both loved it.. my father in law loved it a little less when I told him it had veggies in it and veggies that he didn't like.. but to be fair I did also feed him chocolate zucchini cake with chocolate avocado icing and didn't tell him until after he'd eaten them hehe but he was a little happier after I reassured him that he wasn't going to die from eating a few veggies
