Chocolate Beetroot Cake

• 175 grams plain flour
• 10 grams baking powder
• 75 grams cocoa powder
• 225 grams caster sugar
• 3 eggs
• 225 grams raw beetroot (roasted, peeled and chopped)
• 200 ml oil
Chocolate Ganache
• 250 grams dark chocolate
• 250 ml cream

1. Preheat the oven to 200C / gas mark 6.
2. Grease and line a 20cm cake tin (pref spring form)
3. Sift the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and sugar into a bowl.
4. Blend the eggs, beetroot and corn oil in a blender until smooth. Fold the beetroot mixture into the dry ingredients. Bake for 40 minutes.
5. Meanwhile, make the ganache. Put the cream into a saucepan and simmer gently until just before it reaches boiling point. Break the chocolate into pieces and put into a mixing bowl.
6. Pour the warmed cream onto the broken chocolate and mix gently until the two are blended together to make a silky chocolate icing.
7. Remove the cake from the oven and leave to cool, once chilled generously cover the cake with the chocolate ganache.
