Recipe Ingredients for Chocolate beet cake

400 g beets
240 g water
4 1/5 g vanilla extract
15 g apple cider vinegar
180 g whole wheat flour
43 g cocoa
150 g brown sugar
8 g cornstarch
9 g baking soda
6 g salt
2 3/10 g cinnamon

Recipe Directions for Chocolate beet cake

  1. Peel and dice one large beet. Place the pieces in a saucepan with water to cover and boil until soft. (I've heard that you can buy canned beets, so you may want to skip this step--and the resulting red hands--by using pre-cooked beets.) Allow the beets to cool, and then drain them, reserving the red water for another purpose. Put the drained beets into the food processor with 1/4 cup (clear) water, and process until pureed.

  2. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Oil or spray your cooking pan(s).

  3. Put the pureed beets into a 2-cup measure. Add enough apple sauce to reach the 2-cup line. Add the 2 tablespoons water, vanilla extract, and apple cider to the beets and mix well.

  4. Mix the dry ingredients together; then add the beet mixture and stir until well-combined. Bake for 35-60 minutes, depending on the size of pan you use: more for small, deep pans and less for a 9X13 pan. (I used a 9X13 pan, and it took 35 minutes.) Test by inserting a toothpick into the center; it's done when the toothpick comes out clean.

  5. Allow to cool completely before cutting and serving.
