Collection of Chocolate and Beetroot cake recipes.

Post  Errata on Wed Aug 24, 2011 7:49 am

Like the carrot in a carrot cake, beetroot keeps the cake moist and helps it to last for days — as if any chocolate cake is going to last for days.

Ingredients
Feeds 6. Takes 1 hour plus cooling.

50g bitter cocoa powder
180g plain flour
1½tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
250g caster sugar
300g cooked fresh beetroot
3 eggs
200ml corn oil
1tsp vanilla extract

Heat the oven to 180C/Gas mark 4. Butter and flour an 18cm (7in) round or square cake tin.

Sift the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Mix in the sugar and set aside.

Purée the beetroot in a food processor. Add the eggs, one at a time, then add the corn oil and vanilla and beat until smooth.

Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour the beetroot mixture into the well. Lightly mix, using a rubber spatula, and pour into the prepared cake tin.

Bake for 40 minutes, or until an inserted skewer comes out clean. It won’t rise a great deal and the top may crack a bit. Allow to cool a little before removing from the tin, then leave to cool completely on a wire rack. To serve, dust the cake with icing sugar or bitter cocoa powder, and cut into generous slices.

Chocolate & Beetroot cake4 (Tana Ramsey)

Post  Errata on Wed Aug 24, 2011 7:57 am

Serves 10-12
Prep time 25 minutes
Cooking time 45-50 minutes

INGREDIENTS

125g softened unsalted butter plus extra for greasing
75g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
300g soft light brown sugar
3 large eggs at room temperature
225g self-raising flour, sifted
¼ tsp salt
50g cocoa powder, sifted

250g cooked beetroot, coarsely grated, see Cook’s Note
FOR THE ICING

150g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
1 x 142ml carton
soured cream
5 tbsp icing sugar, sifted
3 tbsp crème de cassis, optional
TO FINISH

grated white chocolate
crème fraîche to serve

METHOD
Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/350F/gas 4. Grease
a 23cm loose-bottomed cake tin and line the base with baking parchment.
To make the cake, put the chocolate into a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, making sure the water doesn’t touch the base of the bowl. Leave until melted, stirring occasionally.
Put the butter, sugar and eggs into a mixer and beat until
light and pale. Mix in the melted chocolate, then fold in the flour, salt and cocoa powder with a large metal spoon. Finally, stir in the beetroot.
Transfer the mix to the cake tin, make a slight dip in
the centre with the back of the spoon and bake for
45-50 minutes. The cake is ready when a skewer inserted in the middle comes out with just a little of the mixture adhering to it. Leave the cake to cool in the tin for about 10 minutes, then turn it out on to a wire rack and leave to cool completely.
Put all the icing ingredients except the cassis, if using, into a bowl and set it over a pan of simmering water. Leave to melt but don’t let it overheat. Stir everything together, then take off the heat and add the cassis. Stir really vigorously so that
you are left with a smooth, glossy mixture. Leave to cool
and thicken.
Spread the icing over the cake with a palette knife, then scatter with grated white chocolate. Leave the icing to set. Serve with crème fraîche.

COOK’S NOTE
using ready-cooked beetroot from a plastic pack, make sure you buy the kind without any added vinegar.

Well I made this one.. cakes is very easy to make. The cooking is the issue. Mine burnt despite covering it with foil before it cooked through. Other than the burnt bits it's a lovely dense cake.

Worth trying then. Last time I made one with beetroot it tasted like mud.
