I’ve always loved making cakes, but more the traditional way with eggs and butter.
As a plant-based eater, I’ve now made many cakes without eggs and butter, and they are good, but not always great. Unless it’s a banana cake!
So, when I heard that beetroot worked well to keep the cake super moist, I thought I’d give it a go. I’m not a fan of beetroot, in fact, I don’t like it at all. You can imagine my skepticism here.
I used one of my usual classic vegan cake recipes and added beetroot. To say I was pleasantly surprised is an understatement. My kids absolutely devoured it and they don’t even love chocolate cake that much. I wasn’t sure when I ate the first slice, I could taste a hint of beetroot, but it grew on me. My husband was not a fan. My ‘non-vegan’ niece gave it a big thumbs up. It’s over to you now. Give it a try. I’d love to know your thoughts.
