SATURDAY COOKING: BEETROOT AND CHOCOLATE CAKE

image

1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 ½ cup self-raising flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup grated beetroot
2 tablespoons walnuts, chopped coarsely

Method:

Grease and line a 23cm round tin. Preheat oven to 180°C.

  1. In a big mixing bowl, sift the cocoa powder and flour. Add the sugar.
  2. In another bowl, mix together the oil and eggs. Add this to the dry mix.
  3. Add the beetroot, vanilla essence and walnuts and mix until just combined.
  4. Bake for an hour.
  5. Eat!

Super easy recipe, you only need a big spoon to mix it all together.
I find the cake gets better as it gets older (on the day of baking it, it was soft and quite crumbly), it gets a bit denser, but it’s not a heavy cake.
