Chocolate beetroot cake

Fri Mar 15, 2013 6:14 pm

I've got a chocolate beetroot cake in the oven and it smells amazing. My mum gave me two homegrown beetroots.

I'm not one to make elaborate cakes but hopefully this one is a winner.

So mine was a bit dry. Maybe overcooked? I had high expectations because it had a whole bag of Cadbury dark choc melts. Kinda wished I'd just eaten them on their own :lol:

Disappointing! I hate when cooking with chocolate isn't as good as what you get just eating it!

Maybe it was overcooked or your oven may be a bit hotter. I've only ever had moist choc beetroot cake!
What a bummer!

It's a bit like the carrot back but beetroot! That'll get them eating their vegies.

I love chocolate beetroot cake! Pity yours was a bit disappointing though. :( Do you think it was a fault with the recipe, or maybe something went wrong with the cooking time/temp? I'd love the recipe, but not if it doesn't lead to a yummy cake!!!
