Because it is made with BEETROOT.

Also, no fat or eggs and very little sugar. It's quite dense, but very soft and moist so I'm calling 'win' on this one.

I have a friend who can't eat fat right now (gallstones, ouch!), so I've been trying out various recipes which don't involve any. It's quite a challenge but it can be done.

Also beetroot/chocolate cake is rather delicious and I've been meaning to make one for a while.

Glad you like them. I'm trying to strip out as much as I can to keep the recipes as simple as possible, while still being useful.

Obviously some knowledge is assumed, but most cookbooks have far too much information in. The recipes I adapted that cake from ran to a couple of pages each on my laptop. All I need is ingredients and process.

If I ever make enough to be worth it, I'll do a book. :)

BaggieBoy makes a mean beetroot brownie. We must try this we still have some homegrown beets left.

Beetroot cake sounds amazing, but i think could be improved by adding one more ingredient: sweetcorn! :D

How about a crispy sweetcorn caramel frosting?

Thanks. Like the recipe.

One question. Eating apple or cooking apple. And (oops a second question) do you really boil the apple? Really?

Whatever kind of apple you have to hand, or fancy. I think I used a Cox. Cook it, yes - only gently so it purees easily. You don't have to, but I did.

As it turns out, this cake is like parkin and improves with age!
