Recipe: Easy Beetroot And Chocolate Cake

January 18, 2023 12:56 IST

Simplicity is the star of this moist, unusual Beetroot and Chocolate Cake by Chef Sabyasachi Gorai, topped with caramelised walnuts to make your tea-time extra indulgent.

Make sure you cool the beetroot completely before pureeing.

The cake can be served as it is, or with whipped cream. Feeling adventurous? Add a chocolate ganache topping.

Chef Sabya cooking is of the playful variety -- he often slips the most unusual, fun but healthy ingredients into conventional recipes -- like coconut cream into pasta, pumpkins into muffins or avocados into mousse.

Servings: 1



Editor's Note: To bake healthier beetroot chocolate cake, consider replacing the sugar with grated jaggery.

To veganise this recipe, swap the eggs for flax seeds -- 1 egg = 1 tbsp ground flax seeds + 3 tbsp water. Use cashew butter instead of regular butter.
