“Strange idea but the cake is lovely & sweet & the beetroot keeps the cake really moist.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oven to 190c/fan170c/gas . Tip the beetroot into a blender & blitz until chopped. Add a pinch of salt & the rest of the ingredients, expect the oil & chocolate. When completely mixed (you may need to scrape the sides down once or twice), add the oil in a steady steam as if you were making mayonnaise.
  2. When all the oil has been added, stir in the chocolate, then tip the mix into a lined 900g loaf tin. Cook for 1 hr until a inserted skewer comes out clean. Leave the loaf on a rack to cool.
