If you didn’t manage to catch me on Radio Sheffield a few weeks ago talking about this lovely beetroot and chocolate cake I brought in for Paulette and the team  to try. You can make it yourself and see. It’s such an easy recipe and it’s Gluten Free. I recommend trying it. I was pleasantly surprised with how great both the taste and texture was.


50g cocoa powder

175g ground almond

1 ½ tsp baking powder

200g caster sugar

250g cooked beetroot

3 medium eggs

200ml sunflower oil

100g melted dark chocolate 70% cocoa solids

Sieve cocoa powder, ground almonds and baking powder into a bowl

Whisk sunflower and eggs together in a bowl

Blend beetroot in a food processor

Add oil and egg mix to almond mix, fully incorporate

Add melted chocolate and stir in

Add beetroot puree and stir in.

Bake in a lined 10 inch cake ring at 155 degrees C (fan assisted oven) for approximately 45 minutes

Use a knife in the centre to test; this should come out clean when baked
