Stop The Traffik Chocolate: Beetroot and chocolate cake

cocoa brand-gepaRachel over at Rkhooks invited me to participate the Stop The Traffik Chocolate*, an incentive to stop the use of child labour in chocolate production. So I tried the combination of beetroot and Fair Trade Cocoa. For this cake I used for the same Fair Trade Cocoa as for the Rich Chocolate Cake

The combination of cocoa and beetroot sounds strange, but the mixture of beetroot and chocolate gives a wonderfully „earthy“ flavour, not to sweet and for those who don’t like beetroot you really cannot taste the beetroot taste.

This easy cake is rich, chocolate decadence at its finest. It is surprisingly light and not overly sweet. You must try it to believe it.

    And a nice color, too. Unlike the courgette cakes which always have green or yellow flecks in them. Plus I bet it’s moist! Eat chocolate and get your vegetables – perfect!
