I really like this cake.. But I actually believe beetroot works much better with cranberries.. So i made a Beetroot and Cranberry Cake - any thoughts welcome! See http://utterlygourmet.co.uk/beetroot-cranberry-cake/
I've just made this cake and its fabulous! Everyone loves it. So moist and rich. You can't taste the beetroot. Its a very easy recipe to follow. I was really pleased. I loved it. I will be saving this recipe and baking it all the time. its yum.
Fantastic recipe - lovely moist cake and you can't taste the beetroot. The frosting was unusual - might try something else as the sour cream is very detectable. But it went down very well with the family, including my discerning 2 year old twin great-nephews! Will definitely make again.
I have to say this is the best chocolate cake I have ever tasted! I modified it very slightly by using half milk and half dark chocolate and I put a heaped teaspoon of sour cream in the cake mixture. The cake was so good it only lasted a matter of hours!!
Made this cake for my dad birthday, he loved it as did I. It was so moist and rich.
I did however improvise my own frosting.
Any ideas what cooking time would be if I used this batter for cupcakes?
yes i am! worked it out now!
I'm unsure on the method of the recipe, what happens to the melted choc in stage 2? is there some instructions or am i being dim?
I need recipes to encourage my 18 month old granddaughter to eat vegetables and fruit. I need all the help I can get.
could this recipe be used to make cupcakes rather than one big cake?
