Since the kids loved my carrot cake so much I decided to try a different vegetable in cake, beetroot! Beetroot goes nicely with chocolate and they had no idea they were eating veg. I also added some banana, ground flax seeds, cashews in the icing, and lots of berries on top, to make this extra nutritious. The cake was a huge success with the kids and me too!
As I’ve mentioned in some other blog posts, I have coeliac disease so eat a strict gluten-free diet. I don’t talk about it much on the blog, because it’s a vegan blog, and is not about health or gluten-free recipes, but all the food I cook does happen to be gluten-free, and my recipes on my blog are either all gluten-free or can be made gluten-free, depending on what type of flour, pasta, etc. that you use. I know a lot of people looking for gluten-free and vegan cake recipes, and in general for vegan cake recipes, so thought I would share this recipe.
