I have a really picky eater. He will he lots of what he likes but struggles with textures.
I often cook and hide hidden fruit and veg in food I know he likes.
We recently made this cake together and it went down a treat
200g plain flour
200g unsalted butter*, melted
100g dark brown sugar
3 large eggs
3 tbsp good quality cocoa powder
2tsp baking powder
1tsp vanilla extract
Icing sugar for dusting
:boil the beetroot until soft then blend with a hand blender and set aside to cool.
Pre heat the oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4. Grease and line a 23cm loose bottomed tin.
Blend the butter and sugar together till they are in a creamy texture, add the rest of the ingredients including the beetroot and mix till the mixture is well mixed and smooth consitancy
Pour the mixture into the cake tin
Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. The surface of the cake may have cracked a little. Allow the cake to cool for a few minutes in the tin before removing to a cooling rack.
You can also change this in to beetroot chocolate marble cake by separating the mixtures before adding the beetroot andchocolate powder to one half of the mixture.
